Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, 2010/10/11 - Anyone who needs to find legal representation for court appearances in Australia will now have an easier task with the launch of a new website.
Go To Court is a new online service that promises to simplify the task of finding a lawyer to represent a person in court - no matter where they are located in Australia.
By providing access to experienced, effective and affordable legal representation, the Go To Court website can find court lawyers across Australia, for any type of case, including family court lawyers or civil and criminal court lawyers. It offers a simple search or browse function to each city or town in every state where courts are found, with information about the court location.
Users of the site can request a lawyer in the location where their court appearance is due to be held and then received professional advice before the court date. Once a lawyer has been booked for a court appearance the lawyer can often meet the client at court without the need for a prior conference, or in some cases, the client won't even need to be there.
Go To Court has been developed by Barwick Stevens Lawyers, an established legal firm who work closely with hundreds of solicitors across Australia. These solicitors have been selected to join the approved network of court lawyers on the basis of their experience and local knowledge.
James Stevens, Principal Solicitor at Barwick Stevens Lawyers, says the service is unique in Australia and provides people with immediate access to the largest network of lawyers in the country.
"Anyone who has tried to find a lawyer to represent them will know how difficult it can be”, says Stevens. “You might contact 10 or 15 law firms before you find an appropriate lawyer who is available and is happy to represent you. With our service, you simply contact us once, tell us your legal problem and that's it! We guarantee you a suitable lawyer, wherever you are. The lawyer will usually meet you for an appointment at their office or by telephone at a time convenient to you, and then represent you in court on the day. We organise the whole thing for you.”
Stevens, who has acted in many high profile cases such as the Dianne Brimble Coronial Inquest and the John Abi-Saab blackmail trial, says the new service draws upon the resources of over 600 law firms across the country to be able to live up to its promise: "any court in Australia within 1 hour".
"We really can deliver on that", says Stevens. “We're tested every day and we don't disappoint. We have hundreds of satisfied customers in all areas of Australia. The service suits not only people in capital cities who are attending court, but also people in out of the way places, as well as people who are a long way from the court they need to appear in and can't attend. Booking your lawyer through us can save you a lot of time and money – and we know who the good lawyers are!"
Visitors to the site can book a lawyer online, or speak directly to a solicitor by calling.
