Online legal advice has seen a dramatic increase in recent times. There is no longer any need to drive to see your lawyer or hire a law firm that has a physical office. By hiring a lawyer online, you can have the benefit of fast, affordable and accessible legal services.
In this article, we’ll look at why online legal advice is the new law office.

Most people have an internet connection
‘Step into our office’ is the slogan of Prosper Law. And it only needs an internet connection.
This means that legal advice is more easily accessible than ever. Simply type in the kind of lawyer you want to hire and – hey presto – you’ll have access to hundreds of online law firms.
Online legal advice doesn’t mean that you need advice about the internet. It means you can access a lawyer and get legal advice by jumping online. You can do this with a tablet, desktop computer or a mobile device.
Online law firms are tech savvy
Because online law firms operate in the online world, they understand many of the technology challenges that businesses face. For instance, legal advice regarding marketing and advertising practices will often include an element of being online.
Whether it’s online advertising through Google Ads, search engine optimisation or website pages, an online legal advisor will be able to understand the context. Only a business that operates online is able to understand how businesses acquire, retain and manage customers. Because of this, the online legal advice you receive will be suited to your business and the environment you operate in.
And, your online legal advisor will be able to apply the law in a way that is practical. If the solution you are recommended is not only lawful, but it makes commercial sense to implement, the online legal advice will be valuable for your business.
Because, and trust me, I’ve worked with plenty of lawyers that are not commercial and argue over low-risk legal points.
Online advice from a lawyer may be better value
I say may, because it is not guaranteed. However, when you think about it, online lawyers don’t have the expense of an office and therefore don’t have to pass this cost onto their clients. So, you directly benefit from the legal advice being provided in the most efficient way.
