So regardless of whether you need Sydney Lawyers, Melbourne Lawyers, Brisbane Lawyers, Perth
Lawyers or Adelaide Lawyers this site appears to cater to your needs. Whilst it is almost certain that
large businesses will not use the site to engage in a mergers or acquisitions individuals and medium
sized businesses now have the opportunity to more effectively ‘shop’ for legal assistance.
The site is in many ways unique because visitors have the option of staying entirely ANONYMOUS so
there is little need to be concerned about privacy issues. Other visitors may want to disclose

they can act.
After you have uploaded your problem, describing it in as little or as much detail as you like, lawyers
have the opportunity to disclose to you the basis upon which they might help – subject to contract
of course. Users then nominate up to 3 of their favourite lawyers and get their contact details and
this ensures that YOU get to make the choice in a NON-PRESSURED setting.
Lawyers who want to market their services can register on the site and participate before low cost
annual membership fees are introduced later in 2010. The site already boasts an impressive list of
lawyers including the following:-
bankruptcy lawyers; business lawyers; commercial lawyers; conveyancing lawyers, corporate
lawyers; criminal lawyers; divorce lawyers; drink driving lawyers; employment lawyers; family
lawyers; immigration lawyers; mortgage lawyers; occupational health and safety lawyers; probate

professional service provider.
