A Taranaki business is helping to make low cost legal services a reality for locals by taking its services online.
Law firm Dennis King is calling the online service Legal Beagle and Claudia King, a practising lawyer at Dennis King, says her team created it to help Kiwis get the legal protection they need.
Thought to be the first of its kind in New Zealand, Legal Beagle was designed with busy Kiwis in mind and those who have previously shied away from seeking legal advice due to the perceived complication and expense of hiring lawyers.
King feels Kiwis often put off going to see a lawyer because they’re worried about the escalating hourly rates. But she says the online process is simple and the costs are upfront.
Clients complete an online questionnaire and can use the information boxes and online help to answer their queries. Once happy, they leave it to the team at Legal Beagle to carry out the required legal services.
Legal Beagle is a convenient option allowing clients to look after their legal matters from their home or work at a time that suits them.
The legal services offered are carried out by qualified lawyers and legal executives and include making a will, setting up a company, registering a trademark, buying or selling a house and setting up a family trust.
