Hi, I’m Karen and I’m a qualified, non-practicing solicitor. I learnt early on in my career that many lawyers prioritised making money ahead of achieving the best (and most affordable) result for their client. Some lawyers will tell you that it is too hard to work out exactly what your legal matter will cost you. They will tell you that it is too hard because they don’t know how long your matter will take, when really they don’t want to take any risk that they will underquote and lose money. Instead, they quote hourly rates and when you ask how many hours it might take, they’ll say ‘well how long is a piece of string’. Sound familiar? I disagree with this proposition entirely. It’s simply not good enough! So at Legally Yours we decided to change the way lawyers quote to clients and also the way they deliver legal services too. At Legally Yours we have created a new type of lawyer – a lawyer that is transparent with what they charge and tells you upfront (during a complimentary consultation) what their costs will be. Our lawyers are flexible to client needs, and will deliver their legal services in the way that best suits the client. Our lawyers are down to earth and speak in everyday language, and with our lawyers you will never have to worry about being charged every time you pick up the phone to speak to them. We have searched the country for these lawyers, and we have found them. Our pre-screened network of experienced, progressively-minded lawyers are here to help you in a way that works for you. If you are searching for an alternative to the everyday lawyer you’ve been programmed to expect, then try a Legally Yours approved lawyer and experience the difference.
