If you have close contacts who are lawyers and able to advise you, you should certainly do so.
However, there might be several reasons why you may still want to use a Quick Consult:
You may not have friends who are lawyers or may not have the right expertise / experience to advise or recommend to you
You may want a second opinion to verify the advice you’ve been given and additional perspectives and options
- Your topic may be sensitive and you don’t want to discuss this with your friends
