“Do I NEED a Lawyer?” If you are asking whether you need a lawyer, usually the answer is “Yes,” you need a lawyer!
So, how do you know you NEED a lawyer?
- When you have been sued. If you have been served papers or 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.
Thinking that talking to a lawyer it may make the issue more serious is a fallacy. While it may make the issue some . 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.
