About the Find Your Lawyer Service

Many legal practices have limited time, resources and skills with which to effectively promote their practice and attract new clients. Referrals from clients and other sources are a cost-effective way to develop new business.

The Find Your Lawyer Service, which averages 3500 phone and online requests for lawyers per month, represents a great opportunity for legal practices across Melbourne and regional Victoria to build a client base.

Referrals are supplied by area of law, geographic location and preferred language to ensure client-practice compatibility.
