Why might I need a lawyer?
Basically, legal advice is like medicine: You can take some
to cure problems and some to prevent them. You need legal advice
to cure problems if you are accused of committing a crime, if
you are being sued or if you want to sue someone. A lawyer also
can help you if you want to get a divorce, if you need to file
for bankruptcy and for many other problems.
Sometimes, you can add to your problems by failing to call a
lawyer immediately. Suppose you are arrested or involved in
an auto accident. In these and other cases, witnesses should
be interviewed and evidence gathered as soon as possible.
You should contact a lawyer right away. Preventive legal advice
often can save you time, trouble and money by stopping problems
from getting started. Suppose you are about to sign an agreement
to buy a house, car or major appliance. If you are not completely
sure what the agreement says you must and must not do, you should
find out before you sign. Maybe you are going to start a business
with a partner. A lawyer can point out the advantages and disadvantages
of various partnership arrangements. These are just a few of
the many occasions when lawyers can help you understand your
rights and solve problems with their legal advice.
