Ellesmere Port, Cheshire (PRWEB UK) 20 May 2012
Expert Answers the leading UK online legal advice website announced today, that since launch, they have saved users over £300,000 since its launch in Sept 2011.
“We have been taken by surprise at the amount of people now using the service and from the fantastic feedback from users,” says James Mather, solicitor and co-founder of http://www.expertanswers.co.uk. “We hope to make the service even more accessible in the future with the launch of our new smartphone app”.
With the current economic climate people are clearly looking for more and more ways to save money. Most high street legal providers have a reputation for providing poor value for money. Their emphasis appears to be on recouping costs rather than giving value. However, the Expert Answers approach changes all that and saves people money without compromising on the quality of the advice they receive.
“We ask our users to make a nominal contribution towards their legal advice based on how they value their problem and how important it is to them. The choice is entirely theirs how much they pay ranging from £10,” says James. “This isn’t a way of capturing people’s details to sell to solicitors as leads, as other websites do. We genuinely offer a one to one advice situation. We do not pass details on to anyone else,” he explained.
At a time when demand for affordable Legal services is increasing, it seems counterintuitive to cut the very services such as legal Aid and Legal Advice Centres that ensure the public are treated fairly. At a time of job losses, home repossessions and tougher benefits laws, demand for Legal help is set to go up rather than down.
“The delivery of good quality, affordable legal advice is a key element in ensuring that the person in the street gets an answer to his or her question”, says James. “Legal advice is perceived to be expensive and quite often does not provide value for money. Many people refuse to engage with legal professionals because of that fear and hence forego essential legal advice. The glaring reality is that most people cannot afford advice from high street lawyers.”
