Common Questions For Lawyers

When do I need a lawyer?

Lawyers aren’t just needed when clients are in trouble. They are useful in many other situations. An attorney can help you organize a will, help with Social Security or taxes, and even worker’s compensation. Of course, if you are in serious legal trouble, a lawyer is an excellent resource for you.

How do I choose a lawyer?

One of the first things to do when looking for a lawyer is knowing what area of law you need assistance in. Your lawyer should specialize or have experience in the area you are looking for. Their background knowledge and experience can benefit you and your case. Your lawyer is supposed to be a resource for you, so choosing one in the area you need help in is a smart move.

Will my lawyer be on my side?

The purpose of having a lawyer is to support you, defend, and counsel you through your case. For your lawyer to best defend and support you, it’s important to be honest with them. Sharing all the details with your attorney allows them to better help you and your case. Don’t worry about being embarrassed; your lawyer is there to help you.

What if I can’t afford a lawyer?

The Constitution grants free legal help for people charged with a crime that could lead to imprisonment if they cannot afford one. When you first appear in court, request an appointment with a public defender. You have the right to legal counsel and cannot be denied of this. In other cases, like civil cases, you don’t have the right to a free lawyer. There is another way to find an attorney if you cannot afford one, though. Some lawyers provide pro bono programs or financial aid that provide free legal help to those who cannot afford it.
