Law in the Philippines
It's one thing to find a lawyer and another to find a good one. Filipinos in general get the lawyer recommended by family or friend, that lawyer may not necessarily be the best but he's the one available. People lucky enough to get the services of a law firm are stuck with the lawyer and the hourly price set by the firm, and because they are billed by the hour the cost may go way higher than originally anticipated. On the other side, there's a lot of good lawyers stuck working on law firms willing to engage on cases within their practice field, some think of establishing their own firm but doesn't really want to worry about the overhead of a proper company. These lawyers are very much willing to accomodate clients if only they can access them.

Digest wants to bridge this gap. At Digest, we empower Filipinos with the right information about lawyers. Important details such us lawyer reviews, price range, location and ratings are easily accessible on our platform. Digest also provides a comprehensive price list of common cases which is competitive in the industry.
