The top 5 benefits of consulting with an online lawyer are:
- Legal fees are generally lower
- Communicate when it suits you
- Communicate how it suits you
- It’s good for the environment
Let’s face it – everyone is busy! Using an online lawyer is as convenient as it gets. You don’t need to spend valuable time travelling to a lawyer’s office or waiting in a waiting room. Instead, you can schedule appointments online, communicate over email, phone or video and take advantage of receiving legal services in the most convenient way.
There are some services that can only be done in person. However, providing legal services is not one of them. Even if you use a lawyer that is not online, the majority of legal services you pay for will be done remotely and without you being present.
Online lawyers charge less
Without the added overhead expense of physical office space, online lawyers are able to pass these savings onto their clients. Because of this, online lawyers may charge less than other law firms that have physical office spaces.
It’s always important to shop around when you are looking to hire a lawyer. At the top of your search criteria should be the fact that the lawyer is online.
We have written a helpful article about how much lawyers cost. This will provide you with some helpful information to decide whether the legal fees you have been quoted are reasonable.
You can communicate when it suits you
By using a legal advisor that is online, you can communicate at any time of day that suits you. Depending on the law firm that you are looking to engage, the lawyer may be available during extended business hours and weekends.
This means that you are not limited to communicating during short office hours, when you may be at work or otherwise busy.
You can communicate in a way that suits you
Everyone has different preferences when it comes to communicating with a lawyer. If you want a more personal approach, you may prefer to speak on a video call. Alternatively, you may want to talk to your lawyer over email or on the phone. The benefit of using an online lawyer is that you can use your preferred method of communication.
Using an online lawyer is good for the environment
By eliminating travel and excessive printing, using an online lawyer is good for the environment. All of this helps to reduce your carbon footprint.
Online lawyers make the most of technology and this means that far less printing happens than at traditional law firms.
