Australian Legal Advice Hotline | Open 7am-midnight, 7 days | Call: 1300 636 846
What is legal advice?
Legal advice is the advice that a lawyer provides to you about your specific legal matter based on their expertise and experience, such as advising what the legal outcome of a situation might be; recommending that you take certain steps, or advising you to refrain from doing something. Legal advice includes the informal, initial contact you make with a lawyer (such as on our Legal Advice Hotline), as well as advice provided should you become a client.
Prior to becoming a client, the advice provided is in the nature of general comment only and does not give rise to a solicitor/client relationship. However, once you have signed a client agreement or fulfilled other legal requirements, the advice you receive is more formal and is provided as part of your contract with your lawyer.
Who can get legal advice?
Short answer – anyone who has a legal problem. Go to Court Lawyers operates a Legal Hotline on 1300 636 846 where you can talk directly to a lawyer from 7am-midnight, 7 days a week. You can call this number from anywhere within Australia and speak with a lawyer right away. If you prefer, you can request a call back using the form on this page above, and one of our lawyers will call at a time that is convenient to you. The lawyer you speak to will assess your matter and recommend the best course of action available to you. This may include having a face-to-face meeting with a lawyer in your local area, which can be organised for you within minutes.
What can I get legal advice about?
Go to Court Lawyers are expert lawyers who provide legal advice and court representation across a broad range of legal areas including criminal law, family and divorce law, civil and commercial litigation, drink driving, traffic law and immigration.
Is your legal advice confidential?
When you call our national legal hotline, your conversation is confidential. We have lawyers based in NSW, QLD, and VIC who can provide you with free legal advice. Our services are available 7 days a week 364 days a year. Whether you need help with a family law issue or want to know more about your rights at work, we can assist you. Our lawyers are experienced in a range of areas and can provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your legal options.
How much does it cost to get legal advice?
It costs nothing to get your legal matter assessed by a lawyer on the Go to Court Lawyers Legal Hotline on 1300 636 846. Our lawyers will be able to provide you with an assessment of your matter and make recommendations about the next step you should take.
If you require a face-to-face meeting with a lawyer in your area to get more detailed, specific advice about your matter, a one hour consultation with a local, expert and experienced lawyer will cost $295. This consultation would normally take about 1 hour and take place at the Go to Court office closest to you. In the uncommon event that we do not have an office nearby, we refer you to one of our 700 Go To Court Network Partners.
