Do It Yourself (DIY) Legal Services - Risks and Rewards

Do It Yourself (DIY) legal services (particularly divorce) has grown with the growth of the internet. The internet has triggered a sea change in the supply chain of many industries. Amazon changed the book and publishing business, as Borders found out. Apple changed the music business, ask any producer of records, tapes or CDs. Service businesses have been effected in a different way, principally by giving users more information to make informed supplier selection, and enough information to make those selections more effective. Our firm welcomes informed clients and urges all clients to learn as much about the law as it applies to their circumstances as possible. This invariably leads to better results and, importantly, lower costs.
