Online legal consultation is being implemented as part of Estrada & Aquino Law’s services to its clients in order to enhance client experience of care and support. Likewise, this is intended to reach more people, thus improving both access to legal services and its sustainability. As we limit face-to-face consults and meetings for safety of everyone, we encourage our clients to utilize this online consultation.

As part of the online consultation, please be informed that Estrada & Aquino Law will be collecting information from you, which may include personal and sensitive information. These information will be used to determine whether conflict-of-interest exists, to evaluate your legal concerns, and to contact you. If you wish to engage the Firm’s services, the Firm shall keep your information in order to provide you the required legal service. If not, after consultation, the Firm will keep minimal information in order to ascertain whether there is conflict-of-interest issue that may arise later on when we engage other prospective clients. If you wish to avail this service, you are required to provide consent to the collection of your personal information.

The Firm utilizes Zoom and Google Meet for the online consultation. Be aware that these third party providers have their own privacy policy different from the Firm and act independently with regard to the collection and use of your information.

If you wish to use our online consultation service, please be reminded of the following:

  1. Don’t make private consultation or meetings public. When the Firm sends you the link, distribute the link only to those individuals who will be attending the meeting. If you share the link thru your social media account, anyone who sees the link will be able to join the meeting.

  2. Camera should always be turned on during the meeting. When participating in the meeting, the camera should always be turned on to ensure the identity of the person. As such, we encourage attendees to use plain background, so that no other information will be potentially disclosed. Further, what’s going on in the background might be inappropriate or distracting.

  3. No recording of the meeting thru video or audio. Recording the meeting is strictly prohibited this is to ensure that the matters to be discussed are kept in confidence within the attorney-client privilege.

  4. Submit list of attendees prior the meeting. If there are other people attending the meeting, a list of the attendees indicating their names shall be submitted prior to the meeting as the Firm will lock the meeting preventing other participants from joining even if they have the password.

  5. Use actual names. When joining the meeting, please use your actual name and not the name of the institution or acronyms. This will help the host to ensure that only authorized persons will join the meeting.

  6. Find a quiet place. In order to have a productive and fruitful online meeting, we expect the participants to find a quiet place away from noisy background.

  7. Position your camera properly. Keep in mind that participants are not just seeing you, they are also seeing whatever the camera is pointed at behind you.

  8. Privacy and Confidentiality. Some matters discussed online are covered by the attorney-client privilege. As such, to maintain the confidentiality of these matters, participants must find a place where the conversation will not be overheard by a family member or other persons. If possible, use headset.

  9. Use Chat function only when necessary. You can use the instant messaging feature to ask questions or comment on something while the other person is speaking. Do not use the chat function to chat privately with other participants.

  10. Stay on mute if you are not talking. Use the mute button when you join a call or when others are talking.
