How to Decide if You Need a Lawyer to Settle Your Case

Unsure whether you need to hire a lawyer for your specific legal issue? You’re not alone! The law is complicated and hard to understand. That’s why most of us may not know how to resolve our legal issues, which area of law the issue is about, whether we have to go to court, how the court process works, etc. Hence, it’s always a good idea to at least contact an attorney to get some legal advice and understand our options.

Here are just a few situations where you will need the help of a lawyer to settle your case.


Business Issues

One of the most common reasons that people hire a lawyer is for business issues. Business owners work with attorneys for a number of reasons, including the purchase or lease of property, the establishment of a legal structure, compliance with labor and employment laws, tax preparation, drafting contracts, and more. In other words, any business needs an attorney at all times and not just in the event of a lawsuit.


Family Issues

People also hire an attorney for family law issues, especially for divorces. If there are no disagreements between spouses, in most cases there’s no need to hire a lawyer. However, when there are issues over child custody, child support, and property, an attorney is needed to legally settle a family issue.


Criminal Charges

The process of criminal court cases is confusing, (not to mention, the devastating consequences of criminal charges) and a criminal defense attorney is the only person who can guide you through the process. So if you are facing criminal charges, your first step should be consulting with an attorney that handles criminal cases.


Estate Planning

Everyone has an estate that typically consists of a home, car, real estate, investments, life insurance, etc. Because everyone will eventually pass away, planning who will receive your assets, what they will receive, and when they will receive it, is important for everyone (especially if you own a company or have a lot of assets).

A good estate plan will guarantee that your wishes will be honored when you die, or if you become unable to manage your affairs. That’s why you should hire an estate planning attorney.


Personal Injury

If you have been hurt in an accident caused by the negligence of another person, you may be entitled to compensation. Many people try to settle these claims on their own, thinking that they don’t need the help of an attorney. However, only a personal injury lawyer can give you advice about your case, thoroughly investigate it, file complaints, negotiate a settlement, and/or argue your case in court. Finally, your lawyer can help you recover damages that cover medical bills, lost wages, repairs or replacement of a vehicle or other property damage or compensation for lost capacity to function in normal, everyday activities.
