How do I find a lawyer?
Finding a lawyer can be a daunting task but the Find Your Lawyer Referral Service can help. The LIV provides referrals to member solicitors throughout Victoria, practising in the relevant area of law. In addition, our Find Your Lawyer Referral Service is available via your smart phone.
Free Enquiry Interview
All law firms in the Find Your Lawyer Referral Service provide an up to a 30 minute enquiry interview free of charge. You can use this interview to determine with the solicitor the nature of the legal issue, discuss the available options and request an estimate of costs to proceed with the matter. If you request the solicitor to undertake any legal work on your behalf (e.g. reading contracts, writing letters, etc.) the solicitor’s normal fees will apply. Please be sure to discuss these costs before any work is completed on your behalf.
