Unlike those other lawyer referral services, LawyerSelect.ca specializes in personalized lawyer referrals. That means we:
Even though our lawyer referral service is very thorough, we're also very expedient. We'll begin working immediately to identify a suitable crop of candidates and provide you with their background information, practice experience, cost, location and as well as other information. We quickly help you find a lawyer.
Nothing! Our lawyer referral service is absolutely free to you. Also, if you're not satisfied with the pool of candidates that we've selected for you, we'll be more than happy to keep helping you until you find a lawyer that you like. There's no limit to our service. We'll keep working for you until you find the candidate that you're most comfortable with.
Not only will LawyerSelect help you find a lawyer in your geographic region, but they can also help you get in touch with a lawyer who meets your specific requirements, like someone who speaks a particular language, or a lawyer who accepts Legal Aid.
In addition, all the lawyers we work with have agreed to provide our referral clients with a minimum 30 minute free consultation. Conveniently, this can be done over the phone or in person - whatever works best for you.
After the consultation, you can decide if this particular lawyer meets your needs, and if not, just give us a call and we'll get started right away on finding you another suitable candidate.
Once we've set you up with a lawyer for a free consultation, the lawyer will want to hear your story. They'll want to know what happened, and why exactly you want to hire them.
Before your consultation, a LawyerSelect client specialist can help you prepare. Typically, they'll have you consider the following items:
The purpose of the free consultation is to provide you with information on how the law applies to your case. Typically, this will include a candid assessment on both the strengths and weaknesses of your case, as well as the possible outcomes to your matter.
The consultation phase is also the best time to make a determination if this particular lawyer is the one for you and your matter. You should make an assessment as to their character, and how well you think you'll be able to work with them. You should also find out more information on who you'll be communicating with in regards to your matter. Will it be with the lawyer directly, another lawyer, or someone from their support staff? These are important considerations, since you'll be committed to this lawyer for a period of time, both legally and financially.
By the end of the consultation, you should have more information about your legal options going forward, as well as how much it'll cost you to pursue the matter.
