9 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Lawyer

9 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Lawyer

September 15, 2017

Not every legal matter requires the use of a lawyer. Fighting a parking ticket or attending a small claims court, for example, don’t commonly require a lawyer’s involvement. However, when the situation does require the advice or services of a professional lawyer, here are the top nine reasons why you should hire one.

1. It’s Confusing and Complicated

If you’re not a doctor, you wouldn’t act like one, right? The same should be true of a lawyer. Even highly-skilled and experienced lawyers require the consultation and services of another in certain situations. A good rule: if you are confused by the legalities involved in any situation, consult a lawyer! In situations such as starting a business, reviewing a contract or any other scenario in which there are potential legal ramifications involved, it is just good sense to consult with a lawyer first. Nicholas Radich, of Radich Lawyer, will give you frank, honest legal advice to help you safely (and legally) navigate your way through any complicated situation.

2. It’s Going to Cost You More

You need to carefully consider what is at stake, and then weigh up the cost of not hiring a lawyer. It could mean jail, fines, repayment of other party’s legal fees or a complete loss on your claim. Hiring an experienced lawyer could be the difference between winning and losing. So, it may actually save you more money or even make you more money in the end.

3. A Lawyer Knows What You Need

A professional lawyer will be able to tell you exactly what is needed to combat a suit, file a dispute or successfully navigate the legalities and laws involved in a situation. They will be able to know what steps need to be taken, what evidence or documentation is required and what needs to be filed when in order to provide you with the optimal possibility of success.

4. A Lawyer Knows What Needs to Be Filed When

I said it above, but I’ll say it again: a lawyer will know exactly what documents, motions and procedures need to be submitted and filed at any given time for your situation. Late or incorrect filing of even one document can mean the difference between success and failure.

5. They Know the Industry

Your situation may require the expertise and skills of other industry professionals. A lawyer will have the knowledge and contacts to know who you need to consult with and what other professionals you will require the services of in order to achieve a successful outcome. They can also usually put you in touch with a well-respected and recommended professional individual in that required field.

6. The Other Party Has One

There’s nothing worse that facing a lawyer when you’re not one. In a negotiation or dispute you have already severely downgraded your potential for success by not having a lawyer if the other party does. You don’t want to be the only one in the room without legal representation.

7. Prevention is Always a Better Solution

Prevention is always the better cure. Hiring a lawyer can help you avoid legal issues, putting the problem behind you before it even happens. If you don’t understand the fine print on that contract that your signing: your lawyer will.

8. A Good Lawyer Can Help You Settle

An experienced lawyer will have the skills to help you resolve disputes in a timely matter. Achieving a resolution and settlement whenever and wherever possible, in order to avoid things dragging on in court and tying up your time and money for months or even years.
