Jan. 26, 2011 - PRLog -- is a web-based service, providing affordable, accurate and reliable answers to anyone who asks a legal question.  “We have taken an age-old relationship and turned it on its head,” says James Mather, solicitor and creator of the website. “By taking the pricing issue away from lawyers and putting it firmly in the hands of the client, we are fundamentally changing the dynamics of an ancient relationship.”

“Some solicitors and barristers have a reputation for providing poor value for money and lacking client focus. The emphasis seems to be on recovering costs and not on giving value for money. However, our approach to providing Legal Advice changes all that.”

“We ask our users to make a contribution towards their legal advice. This can range from £10 to whatever the questioner feels appropriate,” says James.

At a time when demand for Legal Aid is increasing, it seems counterintuitive to cut the very services that ensure our citizens are treated fairly. At a time of job losses, home repossessions and tougher benefits laws, demand for Legal Aid is set to go up rather than down.

“The provision of good quality, cheap Legal Advice is a major element in ensuring our citizens get justice”, says James. “Legal advice is usually expensive and doesn’t often provide value for money. Many people refuse to engage with the legal profession because of these issues and forego legal advice. However, the stark reality is that most people just can’t afford good advice.”

Expert Answers bridges the gap between those who are eligible for legal aid and those who can afford to pay high street prices for legal advice.
