There was a cheaper alternative earlier where one could send a legal notice via predefined telegrams. I can't recall why I looked into this before, I think it was a notice of absence or absconding employee but I can't recall.

How do I find such a lawyer?

If you use Facebook, there's a group called Free Legal Advice - India

Do give it a try

Unfortunately, I am not on Facebook. Also I would prefer to hire one rather than rely on free advice.

When I needed a lawyer, I used the service of lawrato.com. They charged a fee hundred rupees for the first appointment (which was a phone call touching upon the basic details of the issue) and then once the lawyer I chose took the case, I dealt with them directly. It was altogether a decent experience.

Your best bet would be to get references from your work / social networks.

+1 to this approach. You can take a call after initial discussion.

I have been using zoomin.com since a few years & have found the experience quite satisfactory. You can give them a try.

I have got quite a few prints from them, and the quality has been good. If you have a large number of photos to print, they have prepaid packs for prints in multiples of 100, which works out cheaper than per photo cost. Do check if that works for you. The validity for those packs is 1 year - you need not print all 100 (or whichever quantity you choose) at one go.

I have found their customer care to be responsive too. A calendar which I had ordered got slightly damaged around the corners in shipping. They shipped a fresh print, no questions asked. I would highly recommend their service.

Now then, it made it to Bombay in 2 days(shipped through UPS) but has been tuck in customs since(~13 days). I have provided the IDs requested by UPS already & a new copy of the customs invoice (as my name was not mentioned on it). At present UPS is unable to provide an ETA or an update.

Is it normal for it to take so much time with customs? Or, should I worry if there is a problem?

Gearbest site has reportedly been hacked.
As it is a popular site among the tbhp members, advise everyone to change their login credentials ASAP.

Also change your tbhp and any other site passwords if you have reused your login and password combination from the Gearbest site to sign into whatever other sites.

Especially if you used an email address as signup and used the same password as on gearbest as your login password for that email. CHANGE ASAP if so.

Out of 2 items, one reached home yesterday and the other was being shipped back to the seller. Opened a dispute and yet to receive a proposal from seller. Hope I would get my full refund.
