Two online pioneers link up

ACCESSSOLICITOR.COM, a legal comparison website of more than 20,000 lawyers, and CONTACT LAW, the first online client referral service for solicitors, today announce their co-operation to support law firms in business development.

Contact Law was launched in 2006 as one of the first online client referral services for solicitors. Through its network of affiliates and specialist call centre it has helped more than half a million clients get access to the right legal advice.

AccessSolicitor.com was launched in August 2013 to help lawyers reach clients who are increasingly searching online, and to provide law firms a lower effort, lower cost and lower risk alternative to expensive digital consultants. Access Solicitor enables lawyers and law firms to promote themselves for free and has developed a lawyer/client matching algorithm with Westminster University to make it as easy as possible for consumers and small business owners to find the right lawyer for their needs.

The co-operation between these two online pioneers sees Access Solicitor utilising the call centre team of Contact Law to effectively qualify client enquiries so that lawyers are always guaranteed high quality leads.

Contact Law founder and director, Dan Watkins, says: “Access Solicitor has a unique approach to helping clients choose the best lawyer online. Having extended its call handling services to other online operators and law firms earlier this year Contact Law is pleased to be chosen to provide specialist call handling support to Access Solicitor.”

AccessSolicitor.com’s founder and chief executive, Warren Smith, says: “Access Solicitor has developed significantly in its first 12 months and we wanted to avoid the delays of building a specialist call centre from scratch. Contact Law have more experience of qualifying legal client enquiries than anybody else so it was a no-brainer to partner with the best.”
