When You Need a Lawyer and When You Don’t.
Find out if you need legal help, or when you can get by doing it on your own.
Speeding in your car is against the law, but so is petty theft. One can get you a ticket and a point on your record, the other, possible jail time. Both instances require attention, but only one will need an attorney to handle their defense. This is just a couple of the countless examples which may or may not require legal representation – it’s best to know when to hire a lawyer, and when you might not need one.
Speak to a good lawyer who offers a free consultation if:
You Risk Losing a lot of Money
You Risk Going to Jail
The Other Party Has Hired an Attorney
You’re Involved in a Complicated Divorce
Any Bodily Injury is Involved
Representing Yourself may be Okay if:
Your Divorce is Simple
Your Dispute is Minor and can be Handled by Small Claims Court
The Traffic Violation was Minor
The question to ask yourself is: How much is your peace of mind worth, knowing that the problem is being handled by a professional? When in doubt, find a lawyer that you trust and schedule a free consultation. In the end, you’ll be glad you did!
