Consult with a Lawyer through a Videocall?

Do you need to hear from a lawyer but do not have enough time to visit a physical law firm, there’s an app for you. And it is called, "LexMeet".

LexMeet gives you access to people in the legal profession who could help you with your concerns with your personal life or business using just a computer and the internet. It is like a dating website among two categories of people- those in need of legal advice and the legal experts.

I had the chance to meet the people behind this breakthrough technology at the Blogapalooza event in the City of Dreams a few days ago. LexMeet has a network of legit lawyers from around the Philippines, ready to take on tasks booked through the website.

I even asked if they had contacts in Baguio City, since I can name more than a dozen of lawyers there who were my schoolmates at Saint Louis University back then. Interestingly, they have.

What I like about the website is that it utilizes video chat for consultations. It is very convenient to working people with less time to physically meet a lawyer especially if the needed lawyer for a specific case is geographically far. 

It is also important to note that the service heavily depends on the strength of both party's internet connection.

Another smart feature of the website, a filter function helps you look for the lawyer from your preferred location, language and expertise. This makes it possible for a client to talk to a lawyer he is comfortable to talk with.

When I signed up for an account, I could not find my activation email so I tapped the chat button of the website which is automatically linked to my Facebook account as my FB was already opened when I accessed the site. In a few seconds, I was already logged in with the efficient handling of the customer service rep on the other side.

The dashboard is quite easy to understand and use. The first I noticed was the "submit legal problem" button. It appears like a worksheet to me. A drop down menu is required to identify the category of the problem being inquired for, but there is a last option which is "anything under the sun".

For your reference on the categories, here are the categories:

In the "facts of the case" part, I love the way a Filipino or Tagalog version is placed after the English instructions. I am not sure if it is possible to go directly to the chat button of the website and talk to a representative about the problem instead if the client is not comfortable typing his own facts. 

Credits to avail of the service of the lawyers through the website can be bought via PayPal, DragonPay and Coins.ph. In a note shown to me when I logged in, it says a video chat is worth P500.
