Trust & Safety

Can every lawyer join LawTap?

Only lawyers (including attorneys in the US) who pass our qualification process can join LawTap. Lawyers must be admitted to practice in their jurisdiction/s, be considered "in good standing" and comply with the LawTap Terms of Use.

The following non-lawyer legal professionals can also qualify to join LawTap:

  • Immigration Adviser (UK only);
  • Licensed Conveyancer;
  • Notary Public;
  • Paralegal;
  • Registered Migration Agent (AU only);
  • Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (AU only); and
  • Title Agent (US only).

Non-lawyer legal professionals must be licensed in their jurisdiction/s (where a licensing or registration scheme applies), clearly indicate their non-lawyer legal professional status when using LawTap, be considered "in good standing" and comply with the LawTap Terms of Use.

Can anybody review a lawyer?

Only verified clients who have actually met or spoken with a lawyer through LawTap can provide a review. That is, unsolicited reviews from "no shows" and unverified members of the public are not permitted. This system enables reviews that are fair, trustworthy and accurate. All reviews are moderated to ensure that they comply with the LawTap Terms of Use.

Can I trust LawTap with my information?

Yes. Protecting your information is extremely important to us.
