With the rapid development of technology, several service providers have switched to online services, one of which is legal consultations services. Through online consulting services, there are at least some benefits that can be obtained by the community. We cannot deny that from day to day, technological developments occur so quickly. Through the technological developments that have taken place, many activities that previously could only be done offline, can now be done from our respective gadgets via internet access.
Technological developments that make many things go online are of course also experienced in other types of activities, including in conducting legal consultations. Several years earlier, conducting an online legal consultation may never have crossed the minds of advocates or those who wish to consult.
However, along with the dynamics that occur in a society that wants things to be fast and accurate, recently online legal consultations have begun to be carried out either through applications or websites or by directly contacting offices or law firms through chat applications. By doing legal consultations online, there are at least two main advantages that you can get:
1. Save Time and Energy
Doing legal consultations online can certainly save time and effort both for those of you who want to consult and for offices or law firms that provide consultations. Because it is done without having to go through face-to-face meetings, of course you don’t have to spend time and energy on the journey to the law firm you are going to. For law firms, of course there is no need to prepare additional estimated time if the client arrives late for a consultation, so that appointments and other work can still be carried out properly.
Doing legal consultations online can also save costs. Apart from not having to pay for travel, currently several law offices or firms as well as websites or applications have provided free legal consultation services for those who need them. More narrowly, the benefits of free online legal consultation will be felt by marginalized groups of people including persons with disabilities, women’s groups and people with low economic levels, as a place to find solutions or answers to the legal problems they are facing.
