With the seemingly unabated growth of the Internet, it’s not that surprising that you can now find virtually any service or product that you could possibly imagine right at your fingertips. Online legal advice is no exception to this new trend. More and more law firms are using the Internet to reach out to potential new clients/customers. Because more people have access to the Internet, advice was the next obvious step for legal firms to be able to offer their help and advice to the millions of people now surfing the World Wide Web.
Nowadays you will find plenty of solicitors advertising their services online. Everything from workers compensation claims to personal injury lawyers to car accident advice nearly every law firm will have an online legal advice branch that can advise you with any query you may have. Most reputable law firms will have a website where you can get in touch through the “Contact us” box that you will find normally either at the top of the page or on the left corner of the page. There may be several ways you can contact them, maybe through email, phone or fax lines are also available. On most websites, you can also find a section where a potential client can submit the details of their claim or query and then simply wait for the solicitor to get back to them with a more detailed assessment of their case. At first, the contact may be through a solicitors’ legal assistant but don’t worry they are just as savvy as the solicitors themselves although not fully qualified; you will then be given the information you require and then the opportunity to hire the solicitor who will then contact you personally.
Through the Internet you can also find solicitors that will take part in what is known as an online forum. These forums are a good way of getting information about your particular case without having to give your real identity. Simply make up an online name and find out what you need to know. In these forums, if you find a solicitor that you can get on with, you can then ask for the way in which you can contact them directly to get a full analysis of your claim.
Another way to find information from online legal advice that may be relevant to your situation is by reading articles that the law firm posts on their website. These articles will give you an overview of the services that a particular law firm may deal with. Again within the website you will find contact details should you feel that they are just what you are looking for.
So, just a quick recap; if you feel that you have a case for workers compensation, a car accident claim or have been the victim of an assault in a public place then do not hesitate to use the Internet for your own benefit and receive online legal advice that is going to cost you absolutely nothing.
