An advocate can send legal notices through Whatsapp, email, Facebook, etc. Even clients can send a notice through social media or through email. It is better to take the photo or scan the notice copy and send through social media or through email.

1. Lawyers Notice (digitally signed) CAN be and MUST be sent ONLY thru his own official Email ID and/or other permissible methods which he may be having. A copy of same may be marked to you.

2. YOU cannot send Lawyers Notice from your personal Email ID and/or other media and neither such Notice shall be valid.

Legal notice can be served by e-mail etc. Your lawyer should send it. Take a print of the e-mail sent.

It is better to send confirmation copy by speed post mentioning that same already sent by e-mail.
