Q: How do I know the service given by an Expert is likely to be correct?
A: Law is a complex area, and it is certainly open to interpretation. For many services there is simply not a single definitive solution or approach. Therefore, Expert advice and services provided can vary considerably. Each expert will have their own way of dealing with a particular issue. Just because you receive two different solutions doesn’t mean to say that one of them is incorrect. Its just because the law has been interpreted and applied in a different way. You are certainly free to ask two Experts on our website the same question to see whether the opinions are the same or whether they differ. If the opinions are the same we would kindly ask that you accept the answers for at least one of them in full.

A: Sometimes answers may come back within minutes if an Expert with the knowledge you are looking for happens to be online when you post your service requirement. At other times you may have to wait long. Your service requirement details can be sent in our newsletter so that registered experts on our website get your requirement and can respond in a timely manner.
