Goodlawyer vs. Law Firms
Join the thousands of Canadians who have chosen Goodlawyer for a more affordable and efficient way to get legal help.
How is Goodlawyer different?
What is it?
A tech platform to effortlessly connect with the right lawyer.
The traditional way to access legal services in Canada.
We recruit, interview, and background check every lawyer in our network. Once approved, they're publicly reviewed by clients and removed if their ratings fall too low. Our good lawyers are good people, and they're here to help.
There are more than 20,000 law firms in Canada. Finding the right lawyer for your situation is often a time consuming process, not to mention it's almost impossible to know if they're actually a good lawyer who cares.
Goodlawyer is proud to offer upfront fixed prices on exclusive microservices like Advice Sessions and Contract Reviews, as well as other common legal services. There are no retainer fees or billable hours — never pay a penny more than you agreed to.
Legal services in Canada are typically priced using the mysterious billable hour. They're rarely made public and for many law firms the final price of a service isn't calculated until after it's completed, leaving clients with a shocking and unclear bill.
Goodlawyer's fees are 30-40% lower than the traditional firm rates on average! How, you ask? Because we save lawyers hours of overhead in marketing, administration, and collections, making them more efficient.

On Goodlawyer, you work with specialized lawyers who understand your needs. Never work with a jack-of-all-trades again — you've got a stable of lawyers available at your fingertips.
Only the largest law firms in Canada have coverage of all practice areas. Almost all other small firms specialize in one or two areas and can't help in areas outside of their expertise.
Calling, emailing, or messaging us connects you directly with a member of the Goodlawyer team. Almost 100% of inquiries get a response within five minutes if sent during working hours
Recent studies show that law firms only manage to answer 44% of phone calls and 40% of emails! Put simply, law firms don't prioritize customer service. Goodlawyer does.
