If you are asking yourself this question, then I think what you need is to change your frame of mind.
A lawyer is a service provider like any other profession. Lawyers work within a set of rules and regulations day in day out and have established experience of dealing with legal problems that are commonplace. Where legal problems become more complex, lawyers know where to find the right answers or how to develop a good argument for a particular answer they want to advocate.
It is that knowledge, skill and expertise that you are paying for when you consult a lawyer. A good lawyer can deal with legal problems quickly, efficiently and properly because of that knowledge, training and experience that they have established.
In our view, you should want a lawyer involved in you legal issues. You have one opportunity to get it right and if you get it wrong, the results can be devastating both financially and personally.
