Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to go to court?
If you have given a lawyer power of attorney, it will be enough for this lawyer to follow your case. However, in some cases, the presence of the client may be very helpful, especially during the court discovery.
Who pays court expenses?
As a rule, the costs of the proceedings are covered by the party bringing the case. These expenses are then collected from the party who lost the case. However, it may also be decided that the costs incurred for the evidence requested by the defendant to be brought during the trial shall be paid by the defendant party.
Is it possible to be exempted from court expenses?
We apply to the court for legal aid for clients who cannot afford to pay fees, expert witnesses, notification expenses and similar expenses. However, in order to have the legal aid request accepted, we must first prove the client’s insolvency. For this, it is necessary to obtain documents such as poverty papers. However, we must state that the cost of issuing a power of attorney from a notary public will be borne by the client.

How will I be notified of my case?
Unless otherwise stated by the client, we inform the client after the hearings and inform the client about the next hearing date and what needs to be done, if any.
How long do cases take?
The duration of the trial may vary depending on the subject of the case, the intensity of the court, the attitude and number of the parties. For example, in the case of a worker’s receivables, the trial will be prolonged, as the service determination case will be a pending issue. In the case of dissolution of a partnership based on inheritance, the number of heirs may be two, or it may well be one hundred. In this case, it is possible for the case to be prolonged even just because the heirs cannot be duly notified. We can also say that the courts in Istanbul are generally more intense. As lawyers, the only thing we can undertake to our clients in this regard is to do what is expected of us on time and accurately.
What are my chances of winning?
Although we know that our clients expect us to give a positive answer to this question, we would like to point out that we cannot guarantee winning in any way, and that giving a guarantee is not in line with professional ethics and may be far from reality. The only thing we can guarantee is that we will only act in favor of our clients and we will not hesitate in this regard.
