hesitant to use online legal services?
This is a legitimate concern and one we had
when developing the service. Not seeing your
lawyer face to face can be difficult, but
given the nature of the work (in India) and
modern technology, we believe that our system
provides the cost effective and speedy way to
resolve your problems. We being in the area
where more literate and compliance pro legal
intellectuals are available who studies
in-depth the issue, the services which are
offered by Senior Advocates in metros and big
cities at hefty fees can be afforded to be
extended at comparatively low prices. In
addition we also use the services of retired
government officers and elderly senior
advocates from their doorstep which makes our
services matured and reasonable, and thus it
is different from the services Professional
Senior Advocates having large offices and high
infrastructure with reputation which has
direct bearing on charging the quantum of fees
as is believed in the law field. This in any
way does not refrain away our concern in
appointing large advocate firm on your behalf
if need arises.

How much do
your services cost?
The initial consultation starts with Indian
Rupees 1000/-. (Approx. US$ 20). Initial
consultation covers understanding the matter
from fact, and opinion on it as to whether the
matter is fit for agitation or not and also
covers understanding as to the legality of the
issue. Primary opinion is framed during the
discussion. Initial consultation can be
started with higher fees in complex cases and
quantum of papers to be gone through exceeds
35. Any additional services are negotiable and
dependent on the type of work. Any payments to
the Indian lawyers are handled by us. There is
no upper limit to the fees we quote. However,
we believe we are amongst the most trusted
lawyers in the area in the fields we have been
practicing and respected as group with high
morals. We charge normal fees plus actual
expenses incurred towards the matter.

able to speak to my lawyer in India?
Yes, you would be given the direct contact of
the advocate. However, it is for the client to
keep the contact with the advocate and no
additional fees without express written

accountable/responsible for any matter wherein
strategy of law has been directly framed in
consultation with the hired lawyer by the
decision of the client.

cities do you have lawyers?
We appoint the lawyers after preparing brief
according to Indian Law and give the lines to
advocate that on what lines they need to argue
the matter or follow up the matter with the
Government. Normally we depute the lawyers
from our own group at Rajkot and in most of
the cases such hire services are not required.
Please ask more if you have anything in this
Why should I
use your service? I can hire a lawyer in India
True. You can hire a Indian lawyer to do any
work you require. However, be aware that
choosing a lawyer can be a time consuming and
expensive proposition (unless you already know
one). More importantly most legal work
requires constant follow up and attention to
detail. Most lawyers work on (what they
believe) to be the most pressing work first,
often delaying other work. By diligently
following up (e.g. asking the right questions)
and doing some of the legal work in house we
can save you time and money. Further, area of
specialization by the advocates plays pivotal
role in understanding and framing strategy.
All the advocates may not be entrusted all
matters. Unless you know the advocate and its
specialization area with his capacity to argue
the matter before the authorities, you need a
proper guide who can take you to the proper
person. We take you outside only if we do not
take the matter in lines with our policy and
limited infrastructure in the area in which
your case has jurisdiction.
