After users have asked a question on the Legist platform, every lawyer on the platform can see your questions and comment on it. The lawyers also have the option of initiating a conversation with you directly if they think they can be of assistance to you. From here, you can either continue the chat or ask to meet up.
After a conversation has been created, what follows depends on the users.
On our application, lawyers always initiate the first conversation. This is dependent on the nature of your question and what role the lawyer feels they can play in your situation.
Users cannot initiate a conversation with the lawyers directly. However, they can post questions that are relevant and detailed and a lawyer can reach out to be of assistance..
Legist was designed to create an open market for legal concerns, so there are no rules or hidden costs to how you choose to express your legal concerns.
