One of the issues that crop up on a regular basis with The Legal Advice Office are queries and advice sought from us when you have been lied to or, at least, not been told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
If someone sells you an item, for example, a motor car, and they do not fully disclose to you any defects in that vehicle that they knew about or should reasonably have known about; then you have certain legal rights and recourse.

In our previous  blog we answered some FAQ’s about motor car accidents and the consequences.

As previously, we reiterate that if you have been recently involved in a motor vehicle accident and need advice or legal services on the RAF, civil or criminal damages claims you may have as a result of the collision; then please contact our office and/or legal consultant, as soon as possible for obtaining proper, professional legal advice.

We will today answer a few more to finalise this topic for now.

In our last blog we gave you all guidelines on what to do after you are involved in a motor car accident. We stress that it is always advisable for you to seek prompt, proper and professional legal advice and also to secure reliable legal services when dealing with this and any other type of factual and legal dispute. It is always advisable to be aware fully of all your legal rights in any given circumstances.

Today we answer some questions that are often asked by our clients.

Car accidents happen at the rate of hundreds a day.

Some just a fender bender; others serious accidents where people are seriously injured and/or killed.
We all hope never to be involved in a car accident, but if we are, what must we do? 

Fixed term contracts, in certain circumstances, can now be lawfully terminated in terms of the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA.)

Prior to this Act; which came into effect on the 1st April 2011; the law of contract and the common law dealt exclusively with the issue of when, where and how fixed term agreements, including leases, expired or were renewed.

It is important to note that we are not attorneys; but rather legal consultants, legal advisors and paralegal practioners.

We do all the background legal and paralegal work ourselves; and use our own appointed panel attorneys, throughout South Africa, only when absolutely necessary.

When using panel attorneys, they strictly follow both ours and our client’s specific instructions; and only in respect of legal work required to be attended to by duly admitted and practicing attorneys.

We only use practicing attorneys and other legal professionals when they are essential so as to save our clients’ legal costs.

The Legal Advice Office has been operating since 2004 and we have an excellent track record.

The normal fees of our advice services vary between R 100.00 and R 1000.00 per matter depending on the complexity of the issues raised with us; and, on occasion, our telephonic and simple email advice is free.

Our legal services fees are generally about 50% of the going rate of practicing attorneys, advocates, lawyers and/or other legal practitioners with similar experience.

What is The Legal Advice Office?

Who are we and what do we actually do?

We are a purely internet based legal firm, based in the Western Cape, that provides legal advice; and agreed legal services and paralegal services throughout the Country.

We are exclusively and internet based business and only interact with our clients by phone and by email.

This modus operandi saves time and money.

Can you trust us?

Well; we have operated in one form or another since 2005 and have a very good and proud track and success record in furnishing good solid professional legal advice, resolving legal issues and enforcing our client’s legal rights based on their email and telephone instructions to us.

We do everything by email and telephone and are both quick, professional and efficient.

We do not provide face to face consultations although Skype interviews can be pre-arranged by specific with us in special circumstances; if needed.

We have two main functions:

To provide general legal and other advice on all and any legal queries and questions; and
To provide proper, prompt and professional legal services to anyone that sends us an email; if they instruct us to provide those agreed services,
This is however not a free service; although we do sometimes provide answers and solutions to simple straightforward questions at no charge.

As regards our legal services; we work at R 1250.00 per hour and charge for our agreed services on an hourly basis. We will always agree a set fee with you.

Generally our advice function costs anything between R 300.00 and R 1000.00 depending on the complexity of the query, question or problem.

We also will always give you a quote before we provide you whether with advice or when we provide legal, paralegal or any other services.

All our fees are therefore always pre-agreed fees for the advice and the services that we provide to you.

Sending us an email and a query costs you nothing and we reply to all emails received within 48 hours.

Once again; we must stress that it is always advisable for you to seek prompt, proper and professional legal advice and legal services when dealing with factual and legal issues as we reiterate the law and legal issues can sometimes can be confusing and complicated, especially in its correct interpretation; and needs a trained experienced and legal mind to interpret it correctly and as accurately as possible in any given circumstances.
