After listening to an outline of the aims of the new website from X-Press Legal director Dave Lister, Councillor Carey clicked a switch to project an image of the website onto a wall in the company’s boardroom and declared ‘Law Plan and Simple’ officially ‘live’.
Mr Lister, who played the key role in devising and designing the new website told the meeting: “Over the past 14 years we have aided over 300,000 singles, couples and families to move home by providing property search reports for conveyancers and lawyers. In doing so we have helped shorten the contractual process as well as saving money.
“The legal sector is professional, hard working and approachable but a barrier exists between them and the general public, mainly due to a fear factor of anything labelled legal.
“In order to help break down these barriers we have spent two years and invested heavily in developing a bespoke website, written in plain English, which invites the user, without commitment, to read and reference nearly 50 common areas of law that could affect a normal family in its lifetime.
“The website ‘Law Plain and Simple’ will help greatly in educating and building confidence to deal with legal professionals and we are immensely proud that the Mayor of Warrington has agreed to help us officially launch the website today.”
After launching the new site, Councillor Carey said he was ‘greatly impressed’ with what X-Press Legal had achieved and the unique services it offers.
“The fact that you are a Warrington company makes this poignant for me because the success and growth of companies like yours will create prosperity and jobs for the benefit of the Warrington economy," he added.
“It is great to see a local business initiative making such an impact with a new service that a great many people will find very useful. I have enjoyed learning about your success.”
X-Press Legal Managing Director Lynne Lister added: “It was wonderful to have the Mayor at our new offices to launch a service we are all very proud of. But it was also heart-warming to hear the Mayor make such warm comments about the success we have achieved.”
