Find a Lawyer Smartphone App
22 November 2012 at 8:54 am

The Law Society of NSW has launched what it describes as Australia’s first mobile app providing access to the state’s more than 24,000 solicitors.

The President of the Law Society of NSW, Justin Dowd, said the launch of the smartphone app is part of the Society’s ongoing commitment to improving access to legal advice and information.

“The Find a Lawyer app for iPhone and Android devices contains up-to-date contact information as well as key details such as the languages spoken and areas of expertise for solicitors and mediators in NSW,” Dowd said.

“With this new app, members of the public have access to an up-to-date directory of all New South Wales practices, solicitors and mediators.

“The searchable database is a ‘one stop shop’ with details on all solicitors who hold a certificate to practice in NSW.

“Whether you are looking for a solicitor who specialises in conveyancing matters, or need help with making a will, the app will help you find a lawyer, while you are on the move,” he said.

Dowd said the Find a Lawyer function is currently one of the most popular ‘clicks’ on the Law Society website, and includes ‘find a solicitor’, ‘find a practice’ and ‘find a mediator’.

Solicitor information such as date of admission, principal place of practice and practice type, website information and contact details, such as postal address, email and phone number is available on the database.

The solicitor database can be searched by first and surname, suburb, region and area of Accredited Specialisation. Practice location can also be accessed through Google maps and Street View.

The Find a Solicitor app is now available to download for iPhone and Android mobile devices through the iTunes store and Google play store.
