But Mania said it’s not directional

… or how can free legal advice get expensive? We are writing this article in response to the fact that our legal advice service is increasingly being contacted by people asking us to give them, as they say, “just advice”. Which between the lines means they want good and expert advice ideally from an online lawyer, but free of charge.

Chapters of the article

To the best of our knowledge and conscience, we cannot provide free legal advice. Since many people interpret such a response as an unwillingness or lack of goodwill to help, or worse, as an attempt to make a profit at any cost, we have decided to comment on this and explain to all such people why it is in their interest to pay for advice and a solution to a legal problem, and what they can avoid by relying only on free legal advice. This is a follow-up to our article Why it pays to pay for legal services.

1. Free legal advice

If you are in a situation where you really can’t afford to pay for legal advice, you always have the option of using free legal advice services, which are subsidised by the state, funded by donations or patrons. Such free legal aid clinics are usually non-profit organizations that you can always contact. Alternatively, you can contact the Czech Bar Association (CBA), which may, in certain circumstances, appoint a particular lawyer from a list of lawyers maintained by the CBA to provide free legal advice. However, these are usually serious and difficult life situations. Can you imagine someone asking for free legal advice on how to sell their flat without legal risks? And they wanted “just advice”? Moreover, even “free lawyers” from non-profit organizations are paid and earn their living from this work, even if they are not paid directly for individual services in the form of attorney’s fees and do not receive money directly from their clients.

2. The only attorney available at any given time is for you

If you want “just advice,” can anyone guarantee that they will actually take the time to see you? And as much time as you yourself need? Imagine coming in for advice and learning that no matter what, the expert only has five minutes to deal with you, and then you have to deal with it yourself… Look it up in the statute book, page 32, section 10, paragraph a. You’ll get over it somehow!

An affordable lawyer is an online law firm that is always on your side. Although we are attorneys mostly from Prague, we can help you wherever you are. We defend your interests, your claims. At the appointed time, we are there only for you as your legal representative. We look for and find for you a solution to your legal problem, tailor-made. Responsibly and discreetly. The prices of our services are affordable for virtually everyone. You always know in advance what you will pay for and how much. Need to know more?

Solutions Tailored for You

Our team of experienced attorneys will help you solve any legal issue. Within 24 hours we’ll evaluate your situation and suggest a step-by-step solution, including all costs. The price for this proposal is only CZK 690, and this is refunded to you when you order service from us.

3. The available attorney is directly responsible for the legal advice provided

Asking if you’ve seen the movie Ball Lightning is probably pointless, right? And can you recall the catchphrase that was uttered just before the fast liaison hit the road? “… but Mania said it wasn’t directional.” And Mania’s reaction when she heard about the compensation?

“But I didn’t know, if I had known, I would have talked her out of it. Anezka, you should have told me that it was so many families and so much money. I didn’t know that.” That’s exactly what can happen when you take “just advice” from a “legal advisor” who is not responsible for his advice.

The Affordable Lawyer is an online legal service that is guaranteed by reliable professionals, attorneys who take personal responsibility for their work and vouch for it on their behalf. We advise you well and to the best of our knowledge and conscience. And precisely for the specific situation you are dealing with. In addition, we are insured for all cases, for double the market standard.

If you are expecting general advice and half-hearted solutions, then you’d better visit a marketplace with free contracts, or go straight to Mrs. Mania, she always has one.

4. An affordable solicitor is affordable for virtually everyone

Have you ever had the experience of ordering a service within a certain scope, only to find out that it took more time and you paid twice as much? Without consulting with you? Or you wanted something for free, only to find out that the free service was automatically accompanied by a horrendously priced other service. And there’s no way to get out of it? Don’t expect us to do that either. If you want to opt for an opaque system where you’re not sure of anything, then look elsewhere than Affordable Lawyer for legal help.

The prices for our legal services are affordable for virtually everyone. You choose what legal services you want to use. The prices for the services we provide are fixed. So you always know in advance what you will pay for and how much. If you just want a little advice, book the cheapest consultation. You will get the same quality of service as if you had paid thousands for a consultation. We don’t discriminate. We give the best legal advice to everyone, no matter what.

Do you like it? But… are you looking for a snag? Just use our services and see for yourself the quality.

5. We offer good advice for free on our blog

We are ready to serve you well with legal advice in our online legal advice room, to check or draw up your contract so that you don’t rush to buy a property or in business, to advise you on work problems. And much more.

We want to serve you impartially, responsibly and for your benefit and your benefit only. We can’t do that without compensation. After all, no good service in the world is free. And by paying for our services, you, in turn, are letting us know that the advice was helpful to you, that it helped you save money that you would have otherwise lost because you could not have resolved the entire situation on your own or with the help of “Ms. Mania,” whatever her name is, the way online attorneys, for whom their work is also their mission, can. And they do it with full commitment. And in your interest.

Reviews of the Dostupný advokát service

Recenze služby

Tomáš Hrdlička, Nové Strašecí

before 3 years

I felt very uncomfortable meeting an attorney in person. But Dostupný advokát managed to solve everything for me online. I bought a consultation because my employer had sent me for a long term business trip to an exotic country with no explanation, and I wanted to be sure what my rights in this situation were. (zobrazit více) The Skype consultation was very pleasant and the service was fast. I can fully recommend them.

Dostupný advokát updated the terms of a contract for our web portal studentino.cz, to insure that they were in strict accordance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The entire process was done online and for reasonable price.

We had terms and conditions drafted for our gym, and now we are very glad that we did so. Clear relationship rules are the basis for lasting friendships, and never more so than in the business world!
