I have used your compare legal services site for the first time today. I have had the need for legal services many times over the last 10-years and this experience was the simplest and quickest method of attaining quotes I have ever experienced.

We require a lawyer to act for us on a new building lease. Ordinarily it would have taken at least half a day of my time calling different law firms and getting frustrated with the slow process and many questions for quotation.

The enquiry form took me less than two minutes to complete and quotes arrived within fifteen minutes of completing the form.

Well done for making a laborious process very simple.
