The immense value of legal notice

Arnab Banerjee

Dear friends   Today i want to explain to you how valuable legal notice is. Legal notice is drafted and sent by the lawyer on behalf of their client to the opposition.   This notice acts as a warning. It will make the offender think seriously about the crime. The notice will make him work which otherwise is not possible.   Legal notice also shows the court that the other side knows very well about the case and whatever their response is it is well thought out. They know the consequences. This will help court act more smoothly.   So in future if you have a problem please send legal notice to the opposition.   Word of caution :   Do not draft the notice and send it yourself. It is lawyer's job. Not your job.   Read More
