The legal system is a complicated arena where something as small as missing a deadline or filing incorrect paperwork can sink your entire case. This kind of error happens all too often when individuals attempt to save money by trying to represent their case on their own. Rather than dealing with the frustrations of legal jargon, required filings and the stress of not knowing if you’re doing the right thing, hire an attorney who will represent your best interest to the fullest extent of the law.
1) Your financial security and/or your liberties may be at stake. It is crucial to make sure that you have an attorney who is working exclusively on your behalf when there are enormous potential consequences.
2) The fees associated with retaining a lawyer may actually be much less than what you could lose if you represent yourself, especially when it comes to family law and criminal defense. Ask yourself: can I afford to lose income month after month rather than paying to hire an attorney for a short period of time?
3) Having an attorney can help prevent potential future issues from arising by properly applying the law. The phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is never truer than when applied to avoiding legal problems down the road.
