Legal advice can only be provided by lawyers with current practising certificates. As the Lawpath software is not a law firm, the information it provides is of a general nature. You should always seek advice from a lawyer (including our law firm Lawpath Legal) on any of the information or products you use on the Lawpath site to ensure it’s relevant and suitable for your specific needs.
Lawpath carefully selects and reviews each of the lawyers on our network. Every lawyer has a practicing certificate issued by the Legal Institutes of Australia and has significant commercial experience to ensure the work they do for our clients is of the highest quality.
Any signed document can be legally binding and Lawpath’s documents are no different. Drafted by lawyers from Australia’s top tier firms and provided to us by our partners at LexisNexis, the world’s oldest and leading legal content company. Whilst we always strive to ensure our documents are up to date with local legislation we strongly advise you to have a lawyer review and sign off on any Lawpath document you customise. We can arrange for one of network lawyers to do this for you by using our Lawyer Marketplace.
You can, but you’ll never know who drafted the document, if it’s up to date with current legislation and if the terms and clauses included in it are suitable for your specific needs. This is why over 130,000 businesses have used our platform. We always ensure our documents are up to date, drafted by expert lawyers, and can be tailored to your individual needs. The best part is you get your first document free, so there is no risk!

We understand that some legal matters are urgent, which is why we aim to get you connected with your lawyer as fast as we can. This can be in as little as a couple of hours, but depending on the complexity of the matter and lawyer availability, can take up to 24 hours.
All of our lawyers are qualified and admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of their State or Territory. We also have lawyers on our platform who are admitted to practice in multiple States, as well as internationally. Most of the lawyers on our platform are also reviewed by customers, which means that you’ll have a better idea of whether a particular lawyer is right for you.
Yes, prices are quoted up front and transparently. This means that you’ll only have to pay the fee that’s been agreed upon between you and your lawyer. Our lawyers don’t charge by the hour, so you won’t have to worry about costs escalating without your knowledge.
We have lawyers located throughout Australia (not just in Sydney) so you can easily find one that is close to your location or in another State. You can connect with a lawyer near you when you request quotes or by selecting the capital city that’s closest to you under the ‘Directory’ tab on our website.
You’ll receive one quote per request from our network of lawyers. These will be lawyers who have expertise in the area of law your matter relates to, so you know you’ll be receiving quotes from quality lawyers to choose from.
The quote you receive should include an introduction from the lawyer price, scope of work, turnaround time, and any work which may be excluded.
Our marketplace has a network of more than 1000 Australian lawyers. Our lawyers have experience in all facets of law, whether it be commercial, IP or even various personal matters. We also have lawyers located in most Australian States and Territories, so you’ll never not have access to legal help when you need it.
All quotes are backed by our satisfaction guarantee. This is why we hold your funds until you are completely satisfied with the job your lawyer has done. Once your job is complete and you’re satisfied, the funds are released to your lawyer.
You can secure your lawyer of choice by selecting the HIRE button within the quote. Once payment is finalised the lawyer will be notified instantly with your contact details to commence providing the legal services on your behalf.
After you accept your quote please allow the lawyer between 24 – 48 hours to get in touch with you. They will need to confirm your exact instructions before commencing the work. This is important to ensure they deliver on expectations. If you require the lawyer to get in touch faster you can send them a direct message from within your account requesting they get in touch at the earliest.
