You’ve been hurt in a car accident. It’s time to draw up a will. The buyer of your home is suggesting some creative financing. A family member has been arrested. You have been served with divorce or child support papers.
You need a lawyer. The question is: how do you find the right lawyer for your needs? And, once you do, how can you figure out what it might cost?
Often, people turn to lawyers as a last resort after the contract has been signed, or the spouse has walked out or a creditor is threatening.
The adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is as true with legal matters as it is with regular medical checkups.
Good legal advice is one of the greatest preventative measures a lawyer can provide. It can not only save you money in the long run, but also save you from unpleasant difficulties later.
