"Fee Quote Requests" is a feature that can be selected by Public Users to be tagged to user-submitted questions, posted on the Nearlaw.com platform. If you posts a "Free Question" and want to know what might be a subjective, approximate estimate of legal fees involved in the resolution of the said matter, you could check the option (checkbox) to include a "Price Quote" for that matter.
When providing a "Fee Quote Request", Third-Party Lawyers or Legal Professionals could answer with a range (like Rs.20,000 to Rs.25,000) or they could qualify an amount based on other criteria, such as (Rs.5000/- per appearance, etc.) The numbers, provided here, are purely and solely for illustration purposes only and not meant as directional criteria.
Fee Quotes are generic and approximate quotations and not legally valid offers and should not be construed as an offer or a solicitation of any kind, way or form.The Fee Quotes just enable Users to get an estimate of typical costs involved with the litigation or legal resolution of any generic matter, similar in circumstance or factual interpretation as their own posted matter/ question or issue.
One of the key requirements for everyone who has a legal issue or problem, is to understand the approximate cost implications of qualified legal services. NearLaw wants to bring a semblance of transparency and integrity while adhering to all applicable rules and regulations.
Allowing Public Users, the option to request for a "Fee Quote" along with their questions is one small step to ensure a good fit between the User and the Lawyer.
Responding to the "Fee Quote" request is not a mandatory or required field for Third Party Lawyers or Legal Professionals, so while submitting a request for a "Fee Quote" is an available option, you may or may not receive a qualified response from the Third Party Lawyer or Legal Professional.
After accessing the Fee Quote, if it is acceptable to you, you may book a (paid) consultation with the Lawyer via Mobile Phone, Email or face-to-face Meeting.
If you are not satified with answer to your "Fee Quote Request", you may decide to search for other Lawyers and consult with one you find suitable, or decide to make an upward revision to your budget and try to fulfill the fee quote to resolve your matter or issue.
