FirmChecker collects legitimate ratings, reviews and pricing information to help you make better decisions when hiring lawyers, accountants, bookkeepers and conveyancers.
They’re big purchases that can change your life, so getting the right advice matters.
Like TripAdvisor for travel or Zomato for restaurants, we make professional advice transparent and easy.
How it works
Our service is free for the public, and ad-free. We plan to keep it this way forever.
To achieve this goal, we ask that you contribute to FirmChecker in one of the following ways:
- Leave a legitimate review of a service provider you’ve used
- Make a ‘gold coin’ donation to help us improve the site
- Refer a friend, family member or colleague to the site
- Provide pricing information to the platform
In doing so you’ll get full access to the information on FirmChecker for free, without ads, and help others like you find professionals more effectively.
Your feedback will also help firms deliver you better service.
Like TripAdvisor for travel or Zomato for restaurants, FirmChecker makes professional advice transparent and easy.
Our philosophy is simple: Leave a Review to See All Reviews
Why? While we firmly believe this information should be free to clients to help them choose, we want people to help others by contributing reviews themselves. If you contribute to our platform by leaving a review or giving feedback to a firm, you're helping others make better decisions.
Finally, our firms also love your feedback, and use it to improve their service offerings to you.
What if I haven't used a firm before?
If you haven't used a professional services firm before, that's okay! You get unlimited access for a gold coin donation (i.e. $1 or $2). This will help us help others to find the right advice. It also helps us keep this information free, without needing to rely on advertising on the site.
Whether through contributing reviews, or through a small donation, we greatly appreciate your support. It helps us keep ad-free!
Client feedback is vital to improving your service. We encourage you to sign up for a FirmChecker account so that you can:
- Respond to reviews
- Get feedback
- Capture leads
We've also partnered with the National Australia Bank to bring you the Professional Services Awards, which are judged by clients. All Premium subscribers receive benchmarked reports as part of their subscription.
Why a subscription model?
Making FirmChecker a subscription model means we can provide a useful application without us having to:
- Have advertisers on the site
- Take a 'clip of the ticket' - we do not charge a match-making fee
- Monetise your data
- Take sponsored listings
We believe a subscription model is the most straightforward and transparent way that we can serve you.
Why professional services?
Professional services industries have the biggest information asymmetries - clients desperately need more information to inform their buying decisions. Gone are the days when a degree on the wall is enough - the world's too competitive.
By signing up, you'll get on the front foot with managing your reputation online and stand out from your competition.
