Description

You may be asking yourself. When Should I be thinking about getting an attorney. Well here are some things to consider.

When You Should Seek Legal Aid From An Attorney Sometimes the need to hire an attorney is pretty obvious, for example when you have been arrested and charged with a crime or have been served with a lawsuit of some sort. However, there are many situations that are not so obvious, and many people seek the legal advice of a licensed attorney for all kinds of things. Though there may be some occasions where you might be able to get through a legal problem on your own without using an attorney, it is important to keep in mind that when you decide to represent yourself you may encounter situations that are difficult and over your head. What Are The Potential Consequences? When your finances or freedom may be in jeopardy, it is pretty obvious that you should seek the help of an attorney. You don’t want to mess around with serious legal issues if you don’t have the expertise to properly navigate your way through them. Something like a regular parking ticket can be easily handled on your own, but if you have received a number of parking tickets and/or moving violations that have caused a warrant to be issued for your arrest, engaging the services of an attorney can be extremely helpful so you understand all of your options and potential consequences. So, a good guide to help you understand whether or not you need an attorney is to consider what is at stake for you. Meeting with an attorney when facing any kind of legal turmoil can provide great piece of mind. Things like taxes, real estate planning, etc. can be especially confusing and stressful, so the help of an attorney can provide a great deal of relief. Hiring the Right Attorney Some people know attorneys, whether they are friends, family members or neighbors. For others, they might not know any attorneys and will need to do some research. Before you meet with any attorneys, it is important to do some comparison shopping. You should make a list of several attorneys. Call each one and ask some questions that might help you make your decision.

You should find out all you can about the attorney’s experience and if they have handled cases similar to yours in the past. You should ask if they are willing to meet with you one time at no charge before you make your decision. If there is a fee for an initial consultation, ask them how much it will be. In any case, do not expect a long first meeting; 15-30 minutes is about average. Take notes on all that the attorney has to say. Then, most importantly, take time to think it over. Once you have decided on which attorney to engage, notify them and set up an initial appointment. If you need a business attorney in Salt Lake City, call Kirton McConkie.
