Perth, Australia (PRWEB) July 24, 2013 -- LawyerSelect has just launched its new lead generation service for Australian lawyers. The service pre-qualifies clients’ cases and matches them to member lawyers’ areas of practice. The service is free to consumers, with 3 month complimentary memberships being offered to solicitors and barristers, law firms and barristers chambers.
While lawyers across the country are invited to add their profiles to LawyerSelect now, the first rollout is to the Western Australian community, with promotion to other States to follow.
“We are now inviting members of the Australian legal community to post their free profiles in readiness for the launch to clients in August 2013. Members will then enjoy a complimentary membership for 3 months at no charge” explained LawyerSelect creator and Perth barrister, Greg Carter.
“At the same time though, we encourage those in other States to create their free profiles as well. We will commence their three month complimentary membership when we officially launch the service in their State - until then the service will be free.”
LawyerSelect allows individuals, businesses and organisations to post their cases to its secure platform, which then sends an alert to those solicitors and barristers with matching expertise and other nominated criteria.
“The lawyers are then given the opportunity to express an interest in the case and put forward their proposals” explained Mr Carter. “They are under no obligation to connect with the client, and nor do we limit the number of lawyers to whom we sent the alert. We want to give clients every opportunity to connect with the lawyer who is right for them, and vice versa.”
Not a Directory of Lawyers
Mr Carter emphasises that LawyerSelect is not a directory, but rather a service that provides lead generation for lawyers. It puts lawyers and prospective clients into direct contact, in a confidential and secure online environment.
“We do not just list lawyers’ contact details and link to their websites. Our members are able to set filters for the type of case and client about which they want to be notified. And, importantly, they are able to engage in an initial discussion with the client within our secure framework, before deciding whether to submit a proposal.”
“Once both client and lawyer are happy to move forward, they do so directly off the site, and our job is done” Mr Carter explained.
Lawyers are encouraged to register early for the launch of the service to clients, and their three month free trial at LawyerSelect, at http://www.LawyerSelect.com.au.
