It’s very simple: after creating a profile, end users (general public) will post their legal cases. The case will then be visible to the type of LSPs they selected who in turn will be able to bid (offer their service). Once the end user selects the provider of their choice, the two can start their engagement and after completion, both LSPs and end users rate each other. An end user can post multiple cases just like an LSP can be working on multiple engagements.

Yes, end users can sign up right away and start using our services directly. For LSPs, after they sign up, we will need to verify their licenses and/or enrollment certificates and/or any other equivalent document before they can fully utilize our services.

Legal Services Providers are defined as any one of the following: (i) a law student enrolled in an accredited law school; (ii) an articling student who has graduated from an accredited law school but who has not yet been called to a bar in a province, territory, state or jurisdiction. An articling student may be in the process of performing his/her requirements (preparing for the bar exam, in an articling program, and/or other related requirements) in order to be called to a bar in a province, territory, state or jurisdiction; (iii) a paralegal who is qualified by training and education to provide quasi-legal services. A paralegal may be required to be licensed by a governing legal body of a jurisdiction; or (iv) a lawyer who is qualified by training and education, and called to the bar of at least one province, territory, state or jurisdiction. The lawyer must be licensed to practice, have malpractice insurance and be in good standing in the associated bar of at least one province, territory, state or jurisdiction.

We shall not collect any fees or payments from end users (general public). An end user registers as someone who is seeking legal advice through the use of our services and website. Any fees or payment for legal services to be rendered is to be arranged between you and the LSP, and is independent of us and without our involvement. No LSP is allowed to collect an additional fee or payment from you as remuneration for the use of our services and website. You are kindly requested to report to us immediately of any LSP that requests such a fee or payment.

DAABA™ is a platform that allows users to connect with Legal Services Providers (“LSPs”) to obtain legal services. While DAABA™ may attempt to customize your experience in the selection of LSPs based on your legal needs, DAABA™ will not recommend, select or endorse any specific LSP. DAABA™ is an independent party for all purposes, and is not involved in any form of relationship between you and the LSP. Any contract or agreement for legal services is directly between you and the LSP. DAABA™, itself, is not a Law Firm and does not provide any legal services and/or offer any legal advice. Accordingly, there is no LSP-client including lawyer-client relationship between you and DAABA™, and any communications between you and us is not subject to LSP-client privilege including lawyer-client privilege. Additionally, we do not have access to any direct information or communications between you and the LSP (such information or communications may be subject to LSP-client privilege including lawyer-client privilege).

After registering with us and after selecting a subscription plan, LSPs are required to pay us a monthly subscription fee in order to access and use our services and website so that the LSPs may be connected to the users and be able to provide legal services to them. We do not share or receive any legal or referral fees from an LSP, and the only payment we receive from an LSP are fixed monthly subscription fees.

LSPs are not our employees, contractors, affiliates, representatives or agents, and operate independently from us. Additionally, LSPs are not allowed to solicit or communicate with users, without the explicit request and permission of the users such as when a user posts a request that appears on the LSP’s feed in their profile. LSPs can only obtain access to users’ information with the users’ explicit request and permission.
