Many people say and do the wrong things at the wrong times and put themselves in legal peril just because they were not sure about their rights. This is a common issue with some of our clients and we find that there’s a lot of unraveling that needs to occur before we can get to a well thought out resolution, involving more time than necessary.
Generally (and not limited to), situations when it’s best to consult a lawyer include:
- Arrested for a crime
- A serious accident involving personal injury
- Bankruptcy or serious change in financial status
- Property damage
- Immigration law issues
Our advice is, if you have any questions or gray areas that you’re just not sure about, consult a lawyer. A good lawyer in a reputable law firm will give you a good idea of what you’re looking at and/or involved in before charging any fees. It always pays to check. It will save you stress, sleep and your legal rights in the long run.
We see many clients every day that waited to see a lawyer and unfortunately paid the price with extra time, stress and aggravation. Know your rights and if you don’t, consult a lawyer and/or do research on your own. However, beware of what you read online. There are many differing opinions.
