How is Goodlawyer different?

Goodlawyer

Law Firms

What is it?

A tech platform to effortlessly connect with the perfect lawyer for you.

The traditional way to access legal services in Canada.

Quality

All of our lawyers must pass our vetting process before they can join 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 about your problems.

Transparency

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.

Pricing

Goodlawyer's fees are among the lowest in the country — nearly half of the traditional firm rates! How, you ask? Because we save lawyers hours of overhead in marketing and admin on each client, helping them provide legal services more efficiently. See our pricing page here.

Lawyers are professionals and their time is valuable, but marketing and admin account for up to 70% of a small firm or solo lawyer's time. They recover those sunk costs with expensive billable hours and pain-stakingly track their time to bill you in 6 minute increments.

Roster

On Goodlawyer, you get matched with a lawyer who actually knows your area of need. Never work with a jack-of-all-trades again — you've got a lawyer in every practice area available at your fingertips.

Only the largest law firms in Canada can guarantee coverage of all practice areas, and they're expensive. Almost all other small firms specialize in only one or two areas and aren't comfortable answering questions outside of their expertise.

Service

Calling, emailing, or messaging Goodlawyer connects you directly with a member of the team. Every inquiry gets a response and close to 100% get answered within five minutes if sent during working hours.

A recent study showed that law firms only manage to answer 44% of phone calls and email response rates were even lower, at 40%. Put simply, law firms don't have time for good customer service. We do.

Get legal help today!

Stop dealing with the stress and expense of a traditional law firm. This is a new kind of legal experience.

Goodlawyer is an interactive online service that makes it faster and easier for clients to find and hire legal help solely based on their preferences. We are not a law firm, do not provide any legal services, legal advice or “lawyer referral services” and do not provide or participate in any legal representation.
