Frequently asked questions about this service.
When/how do I schedule my Initial Consultation?
After you purchase the Initial Consultation (or a package which includes it), you will gain access to your very own G&G portal.

How will my Initial Consultation take place?
You choose! Either by phone, or online via video/chat.
We use Zoom to power our online video/chat, which allows us to talk face-to-face via video, send instant messages, and even share our screens with each other. It all works with a single click, and you can even make a test call before starting. Feel free to book a free consultation with one of our lawyer-advisors to see our Zoom video/chat in action.
What if I'm nervous?!
No worries, happens to the best of us! That’s why we pride ourselves on being open and easy-going, but if you’re still nervous we recommend an Initial Consultation via online chat – you can still ask all of your questions, but many of our customers find it easier than a phone call or face-to-face video meeting. You can then work your way up to a phone call or video chat – which is great practice for law school and interviews.
