About Simply.LawSimply.Law’s mission is to connect consumers with the right lawyer for their needs and thus to generate work for lawyers in which they are highly competent. Free to use for the consumer, the Simply.Law website is packed with useful information, legal articles and up-to-date points of law, accompanied on each page by related lawyer profiles. These comprehensive bios allow users to choose a particular solicitor, qualified paralegal or chartered legal executive whom they feel suits their needs. Users can also get a fixed price for certain legal services. For instance, we now offer fixed price probate solicitor services through our Probate Costs Calculator. After answering a quick-fire set of questions, users are delivered a range of probate quotes from specialist probate solicitors. We are currently in the process of rolling fixed-price services out over multiple legal areas including divorce, conveyancing and immigration matters. Rather than contacting a random law firm and being allocated a solicitor, the user is given a greater degree of control about the legal professional they approach. Simply.Law takes the mystery out of engaging a solicitor as the profiles are given a rating and offer clear, well organised information, as well as being easily available. The platform also offers a great degree of search flexibility – for instance the user can stipulate a certain practice area as well as being able to search by distance from their postcode. All member lawyers must adhere to the Simply.Law Member Lawyer Code and pay fees to be included on the website. The code aims to ensure that clients are always put first and that member lawyers will exhibit integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership, alongside good communication and responsiveness. Above all, Simply.Law is about providing a straightforward route to specialist solicitors. So, anyone who wishes to engage a lawyer can make a properly informed choice.
It’s about Lawyers not Law Firms
Our research has shown that those searching for legal services online are more interested in the lawyer who is going to be dealing with their case than the law firm they work for. This compelled us to focus on providing detailed information by way of individual lawyer profiles so that our consumers can glean all the information they need in order to make well informed choices as to whom they wish to instruct.
We encourage our member lawyers to publish helpful and informative legal articles, blogs and guides covering their individual areas of expertise. The Simply.Law guides is designed to provide our consumers with facts, figures and information to help them understand the circumstances they find themselves in, when facing a difficult legal situation.
