Our Service Is Simple

We help you to find the right lawyer, solicitor or mediator for you by matching the details of your case and your particular needs to lawyers who are able to best meet your needs and the requirements of your case. Why is this so important? Because engaging a lawyer that is not appropriate to your case and your particular needs can be a painful experience that may result in an outcome that does not fit with the merits of your case. Moreover, by choosing the right lawyer, solicitor or mediator, you maximise your potential for the outcome that protects your rights.

Our Service Is Free

We do not charge you for the use of this service. This is because access to justice is already difficult and out-of-reach for many. Furthermore, we believe that our service allows you to have the best chance of finding the right lawyer, solicitor or mediator for you.

LOCATE A LAWYER® is committed to being a corporate citizen, whose practices are good for our communities, environment, employees, associates, affiliates and business.

Our corporate responsibility objectives include:

  • Our Environment: To lead as an accountable corporation, working with our clients, employees, associates, affiliates, business partners and communities to minimise our impact on the environment;
  • Our Communities: To be a positive influence in the communities in which we work and live;
  • Our Workplace: To maintain a professionally challenging, rewarding, respectful and safe workplace for all of our employees, affiliates, associates and business partners.

The community that is LOCATE A LAWYER® comprises exceptional people who share similar values.

Environmental Sustainability

As Australia’s leading legal referral service, LOCATE A LAWYER® strives to operate as an environmentally accountable organisation by:

  • Minimising our impact on the environment;
  • Working with our clients, affiliates, associates and business partners to increase the utilisation of green technology;
  • Collaborating with and supporting the sustainability efforts of our affiliates, associates and business partners.

LOCATE A LAWYER® manages its operations and business activities so as to minimise its impact on the environment and the communities in which we operate. As a corporate citizen, we do our best to continuously improve our environmental management efforts, which we recognise can only be achieved through regular monitoring of our performance against stewardship objectives.

With environmental accountability focus, we identify and proactively address risks of pollution arising from our activities and services in order to effectively control and reduce our carbon footprint. In so doing, we continuously work in reducing waste to the lowest possible level and in ensuring responsible disposal.

We advocate employee involvement in environmental matters, providing suitable training and support to employees with regard to our stewardship.

We continue to inform others of our environmental commitments, including organisations and stakeholders with whom we associate and affiliate. We undertake an annual review of this commitment in the light of any new knowledge, changing legislation or public concerns, so as to continuously improve our environmental accountability focus.
