This question, “Do I NEED a Lawyer?” is asked of me on an almost daily basis. It’s one of those questions that when you ask a lawyer if you need a lawyer – you know what the answer is going to be. “Yes! You need a a lawyer.” If you are having to ask if you need a lawyer, you probably need a lawyer.
So, when do you NEED a lawyer?
- When you have been sued. If there is an active lawsuit you need to see a lawyer.
- When you have been seriously injured and it was not your fault. This applies to car wrecks, but it also applies to any injury.
- When you have been arrested. Law Enforcement involvement is usually a significant sign that you need an attorney.
- When there are significant risks involved. Lawyers are trained to identify and attempt to minimize risk.
Well, you think, if I talk to a lawyer it may make the issue more serious. Perhaps, but lawyers, for the most part try to help. Their goal is to advise you, help you, and/or defend you from whatever harm is at issue. Knowing your rights, being prepared, and being fully informed are never negatives to self-preservation.
Okay, so I need a lawyer. How do I find one? Glad you asked. (click me)
