LegalWise is pleased to announce the launch of their new face-to-face video consultations. LegalWise Members can now enjoy face-to-face consultations on either a WhatsApp video call or on Zoom. The launch is a tangible step to improve access to legal services and in so doing the new service plays a small but meaningful role in breaking down the geographic and physical barriers to justice.
“During the recent LegalWise Attorney Conference, Mr. Ronald Lamola, Minister of Justice and Correctional Services delivered a keynote address in which he stressed, that within the context of the socio-economic inequalities that exist within our society, there is still work that needs to be done to develop our justice system to make it more accessible,” commented LegalWise South Africa CEO, Siva Gengan. ”The new video consultations will ensure that our Members can consult with a Legal Counsellor, from anywhere in the country while still being able to put a face to a name.”.
