Latin Legal Terms


Consulto – it means to ask the advice of, to consult (with). In other words it means to look the interests of a person. In the legal practice, this is what people require when they visit a lawyer – namely they ask for the legal opinion (consultation) of the lawyer on their legal issue.

It should be noted that when being legal practitioners, bona-fide lawyers and attorneys-at-law do not practice their job for free. Legal advice and legal protection of people’s interests is paid as any other type of job – including the legal consultations and legal representation. The efforts which lawyers put in proper performance of their legal activities should be respected and valued by the people who seek their help. The same situation occurs when you visit a doctor – you pay for consultation and for eventual medical treatment.
