LONDONERS TO GET APP FOR LEGAL ADVICE
For many people the cost of seeking legal advice can often be too-much. But that is about to change with a pioneering new service involving a partnership between London-based national consumer law firm Slater & Gordon and technology business LegalShield UK.
The two companies have joined forces to launch a new app-based legal service dedicated to consumers – a first for the UK – which will make advice and support from qualified lawyers more affordable and accessible than ever before. Whether individuals need Conveyancing solicitors or a will writing service, they will be able to find exactly what they’re looking for.
LegalShield has developed the app called LegalDefence™, which offers wide ranging consumer legal advice and support for just £24 per month, covering everything from family matters and disputes with landlords and neighbours; to driving and parking offences. The company has already attracted 1.75m subscribers to its subscription-based service in North America. Slater and Gordon will be providing top level legal advice and support through its qualified team of lawyers across the country, including London, to offer the 24/7 service.
Customers will be able to tap into advice from a qualified legal adviser via their smartphones, access self-help legal documents and template letters and benefit from correspondence produced by a highly qualified lawyer. Members can also take advantage of significant discounts on wills, conveyancing and re-mortgaging, as well as more complex legal matters requiring specialist support such as family and employment issues.
