Online Legal Advice

The SA Legal Advice project aims to provide users with legal assistance from a panel of qualified and verified attorneys in South Africa.

Once a user has registered with the site, he/she can post a question and provide any additional information which might be relevant. Once the user has made a small deposit, the question is sent to the panel of attorneys.

The user has the ability to “chat” with the attorney, obtaining clarity on his/her question, and once the user is happy the answer is “accepted”.

The attorney will then receive payment for his answer.

To date, users have asked over 3,800 questions.

The project’s website is available here:

South African Lawyer Search

The South African Lawyer Search project aims to provide an online directory of lawyers / attorneys, with verified and up-to-date information about lawyers and law firms, which is searchable via an easy search interface.

Presently, the online directory allows users to search for a lawyer from over 28,896 Lawyers practicing in 12,667 Law Firms in South Africa, operating from 13,063 law offices spread out through all 9 Provinces.

Law firms are able to subscribe to a premium account which gives their listings additional premium features.

Search functionality includes finding lawyers with a certain specialty (e.g. privacy law, mergers, criminal law), or who operate in a specific magisterial district (e.g. Wynberg, Somerset East, Brakpan) or in your own town/city.
