Introducing Butterfly Legal: Easy, affordable online legal advice in British Columbia.

Butterfly Legal, a new platform for online legal advice, is excited to announce its official launch on June 27, 2023. With a mission to make legal advice accessible and affordable for everyone, Butterfly Legal aims to empower those facing common legal issues with comprehensive and individualized professional guidance.

According to a 2020 survey conducted by the Law Society of British Columbia, 85% of those experiencing a legal problem did not access help from a lawyer. Legal processes can be difficult to navigate without professional help, but the cost of hiring a lawyer is often out of reach for many British Columbians. Butterfly Legal bridges the gap between people with routine legal problems and licensed lawyers with flat-fee online consultations, ensuring clients receive the help they need, when they need it.

Butterfly Legal currently offers Small Claims Court coaching for self-represented litigants, as well as general consultations for a range of routine legal issues like contractual disputes, criminal proceedings, and personal injuries, with plans to add more services in the near future.

Key features:

  1. Accessible and Convenient – Butterfly Legal is accessible anywhere in British Columbia, allowing clients to seek legal advice from the comfort of their homes or on the go, eliminating the need for costly and disruptive in-person appointments.
  2. Affordable – By leveraging technology to automate administrative processes, Butterfly Legal offers a cost-effective alternative to traditional legal services, ensuring those with common legal issues can access professional advice at a fraction of the usual cost.
  3. Fair and Transparent Pricing – Butterfly Legal charges a flat fee for each appointment without hidden costs or additional administrative fees. Clients can book as many appointments as they need, for a seamless and continuous experience.
  4. Licensed Legal Advice – All legal services are provided by lawyers licensed to practice law in British Columbia, providing a reliable and individualized alternative to unregulated ‘self-help’ resources.
  5. Confidentiality and Security – Protecting solicitor-client confidentiality and privacy is a top priority for Butterfly Legal. The platform incorporates robust security measures, safeguarding user data and confidential discussions.

As Butterfly Legal takes flight, it aims to revolutionize the legal landscape by reimagining how individuals access legal advice. By providing an affordable, convenient, and reliable connection to a licensed lawyer, Butterfly Legal empowers clients to proactively address their legal concerns, resulting in informed decisions and increased peace of mind.

Founder and CEO Matt Canzer expresses enthusiasm about the launch, stating, “We believe that everyone should have access to quality legal advice when they need it most. With Butterfly Legal, we are democratizing the legal space, making legal assistance affordable, accessible, and user-friendly. Our platform will empower clients to navigate their legal matters with confidence, ensuring they receive the guidance they deserve.”

Matt Canzer is a member of the Law Society of British Columbia, the Canadian Bar Association, the BC Trial Lawyers’ Association, the Legal Coaches Association, the Accelerate Okanagan Technology Association, and the BC Tech Association.
