You have legal concerns you want to address without leaving your house? The first ever online legal consultation app called LexMeet is launched to help you with that. With all the advance features our smartphones can give, LexMeet wants to take the opportunity to reach more people, especially Overseas Filipino Workers, to help them know more about their rights and legal advices.
LexMeet offers real-time online consultation on their video chat platform where clients can directly ask questions and receive legal advice.
Users can download the App from Google Play store and initiate a consultation request by purchasing an initial credit of P500. LexMeet will then help select the right lawyer for the client based on the lawyer’s legal expertise, geographic location, and dialect. Lawyers are informed of their client’s legal problem in advance and given time to review their documents. Clients pay a flat fee of P35 per minute.
According to Atty. Marlon Valderama, President and CEO of LexMeet, Inc. the App aims to address affordability, convenience, security in seeking legal services. The App primarily caters to OFWs, SMEs, and foreign investors.
He noted that strict confidentiality is observed during LexMeet consultations. These consultations are not recorded, so clients should take down notes, while talking to a lawyer through the LexMeet app.
“It is strictly confidential. We don’t have a copy (recording) of whatever legal problem (was discussed). It’s only between the client and the lawyer,” Valderama said. “So when they talk inside LexMeet, it’s not recorded,” he added.
The App is now made available on Google Play. Visit their Facebook page www.facebook.com/LexMeet/ for more updates and info about this app
