New Year. New Pro.

Unlimited advice sessions, free annual corporate return, and really, really good discounts.

Not sure what you need? Book a free call with our Legal Concierge™ service.

Do you avoid calling your lawyer?

We get it. Because law firms can be expensive, unresponsive, and intimidating. You need the fast and affordable legal help they can't offer.

Huge overhead

Fancy offices and partner bonuses mean you pay more for legal. Who paid for that sculpture in the lobby?

Billable hours

Did you know law firms charge in 6-minute increments? The more time they spend, the more they make.

Low priority

Unless you spend thousands per month, you're too small to care about. Big firms prioritize big clients.

Pros love calling their lawyers.

Because they get the good legal advice they need for their businesses to succeed.
No billable hours or surprise fees. Pretty simple.

Unlimited Advice Sessions

You know most law firms charge you for every 6 minutes — Goodlawyer doesn't. And as a Goodlawyer Pro, you can ask all the questions you need, to as many lawyers as you need, without being worried about the bill (or completely blown away by it).

Free Annual Corporate Return

An Annual Corporate Return is mandatory for every incorporated business in Canada. With Goodlawyer Pro, you'll never worry about it again. We'll notify you, collect the signatures, and let you know when it's done. Boom.

Are there any limitations or exceptions to the Annual Corporate Return plans?

Goodlawyer’s Annual Corporate Return Plan is designed for private Canadian companies that are incorporated either federally or provincially and are in good standing under all applicable governing corporate law statutes.

Our Annual Corporate Return Plan is not applicable to sole proprietors, partnerships, not-for-profit entities or publicly traded (distributing) companies.

The Annual Corporate Return plan covers filing for one federal incorporation with one extra-provincial registration in AB, BC, or ON, or one provincial incorporation in AB, BC, or ON. Additional government fees may apply for corporations outside of AB, BC, ON, or corporations with multiple extra-provincial registrations.

Learn more about our Annual Corporate Return Plans.

Are the filing fees included?

Government filing fees for Federal, BC, AB, or ON incorporations are included. Additional government fees and charges may apply to Annual Returns completed for:

  • Provincial corporations with extra-provincial registrations
  • Federal corporations with more than one extra-provincial registration
  • Corporations with principal or extra-provincial registrations in provinces other than BC, AB, or ON.
  • Corporations whose substantive corporate information has changed since the filing of their last Annual Return, such that they must file a Notice of Change of Address, Notice of Change of Directors or other official Notice prior to completing their Annual Corporate Return.

My minute book needs to be updated. Is that included?

The Annual Corporate Return Plan does not include minute book reconciliation or maintenance if your corporate documents have not been kept up to date. If your minute book needs work before we can file your return, you might need to hire a good lawyer to get you sorted.

Are there any limits on Advice Sessions?

No, not at the moment. You can book as many sessions as you need with as many lawyers as you need. Still, we ask that you try to respect your lawyer's time because otherwise we may need to impose limits in the future.

Can I share a Pro account with my business partner?

No. Law Society regulations require lawyers to keep extensive documentation of each person they deal with and Goodlawyer Pro accounts can only contain the profile of one person. This is an inconvenience we're aware of and hope to solve in the near future.

Can I work with more than one lawyer?

Yes. You can work with a different lawyer every day, if you want to. If you'd rather work exclusively with a single lawyer, you can do that too.

Does a Pro membership affect services besides Advice Sessions?

Annual Pro subscribers receive a 50% reduction on service fees for any Fixed-fee and custom services. That means we only charge 10% on top of legal fees rather than the standard 20% for the marketplace.

Pros also get $100 off of Legal Strategy Sessions (regular price $199, Pro price $99), and starting January 5th 2022, $50 off of every Contract Review.

What happens if I cancel my Pro membership?

Cancelling your membership will cancel the automatic renewal of your subscription. You will still retain access to all of the Pro features until your renewal date, at which point you will lose access to all Pro features. You’ll still have access to your Goodlawyer account and the marketplace, and won’t lose any of your records or previous interactions with lawyers.

What if I need advice relating to a contract?

If you have specific questions about a specific contract, you will need to book a Contract Review, and Pros get $50 off every Contract Review.

If you're looking for high-level advice on a topic related to contracts, you can ask your lawyer in an Advice Session and your Pro membership will cover it for free.

What if I have questions relating to non-Canadian law?

Some of the lawyers on Goodlawyer have experience with the laws in foreign countries, particularly America. It can be difficult to find these lawyers when you need them, so we recommend booking a Legal Concierge™ service so that they can point you in the right direction.

What if I just have one question?

If you think you're only going to need a single 15-minute call with a lawyer, consider booking an Advice Session instead of signing up for Pro. This will be slightly cheaper and quicker.

Is there a free trial?

No, not usually. On some occasions our sales team can give out a free trial of Pro, but we believe that the value of our subscription model speaks for itself. We recommend booking an Advice Session or a Legal Concierge™ service if you want to get a feel for using Goodlawyer before signing up for Pro.

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.
