2. Service Process
LegaMart acts only as a service for the online platform provision and does not provide any substantive legal services whatsoever. The legal consultation from the home page, is only an instant communication with a paralegal to determine your ways forward which never create any sort of lawyer/client privilege and devised to ease any further communication between the client and service providers. Services are not provided by LegaMart and are solely conducted by Legal Service Providers.. On the platform, the applicant can describe his or her facts and details (Applicant request) and independently decide upon the legal advice he or she prefers to accept. LegaMart team will assess the client’s request and help them to make their mind and also find the best talent or solution that matches their needs. Such details may include personal information and other confidential details about a potential case which could be highly confidential.

Registered lawyers can submit their quote and also their feedback to any application that is handed to them.

Yet, LegaMart does not guarantee any proposal acceptance on behalf of any Legal Service Provider. Upon acceptance of an offer, a contractual relationship is directly concluded between the applicant and the Service Provider.

This option is free of charge and will require more in-depth information and facts relevant to the service request for LegaMart to provide a customised and best-fit match.
