LEGAL problems that are not readily resolved usually end up being bigger problems.
But many Filipinos who need legal assistance often feel helpless as getting a trustworthy lawyer is expensive. Not to mention the proliferation of fake attorneys in social media who victimize clients
The World Justice Project Report states that approximately 80 percent of legal problems in the country do not receive legal assistance. OFWs and PWDs, find it extremely troublesome to deal with legal issues because they think it’s inconvenient, expensive, and intimidating to deal with. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that are also in need of legal assistance also lack access to affordable legal help.
LexMeet, the first legal solutions mobile app in the Philippines that aims to bridge the gap between clients and lawyers. With just a click of the LexMeet app on a smartphone or a computer provides access to legal services that are both competent and affordable.
LexMeet is an online legal service accessibility anytime, anywhere. Clients can receive legal advice, legal documents and legal remedies online and at their own convenience.
