Increasingly you can get legal services delivered online. This will mean that as a potential buyer, you can look beyond city-based law firms to firms that provide specifically what you need.
This could well be a regional law firm. Equally, if face-to-face service is important to you, and you live in rural Australia, you don’t want to be travelling to the city if you don’t have to.
There are a number of high quality regional law firms in Australia. We’ve collated some of the best based on the most important evidence – the satisfaction of their clients.
Before we get to our list, we’ve got a few helpful points on how to select the best lawyers more effectively.
Tip 1: the best lawyers…at what?
Ratings are great – they give you a high level view of whether a firm is performing well in its niche or not. But it doesn’t tell you that niche is. We’ve gone a step further and broken down specifically what the ratings are for – so you have more detail to make your choice.
Tip 2: certainty trumps price
Most people can’t spend an indefinite amount on legal fees, so being charged by the hour comes with significant risk. Instead, if you can pay just a little bit more to have the firm take the risk, it’s worth doing. In fact, over thousands of reviews, clients on fixed fees report that they’re happier with the service.
Tip 3: share!
If people didn’t generously give up 5 minutes to tell others how a firms’ service was, we’d all be poorer for it. Don’t underestimate how much your contribution to the platform means, and please take the time to leave a review. It can help make the difference between someone else making a good choice and a bad choice – which can have a major impact on their life.
Tip 4: Search
Our data doesn’t stop here – you can use our powerful search engine to drill down to what you really need.
