When do you need a Lawyer? The Federal and State courts have become very complicated. It is tough, if not impossible, for a “non-lawyer” to navigate his way through the legal system. Without the assistance of an attorney, you can lose an uncomplicated legal issue because of your naïve errors. Even though the judges may understand your intent, attempting to represent yourself can cause time delays for your case. Your innocent mistakes and lose the case, because of your lack of legal knowledge. Small procedural errors that a non-lawyer is not aware of can be very damaging to the outcome of your case.

In most cases, the best way to protect your rights is to hire an attorney in the particular field of your case to represent you, such as real estate, bankruptcy, criminal, or business. If you think that the issue is not significant enough to incur the legal fees, then don’t file the lawsuit.
Hiring the proper attorney based on the legal issue is important. If the legal outcome can have a material impact on you or your business, you should hire an experienced lawyer. An attorney with many years of experience in the specific field as your case is the only lawyer to hire. If the issue is minor, but you still need legal advice, you can save fees and hire a younger attorney to handle the problem adequately. You should evaluate each situation on a case by case basis. It is crucial for a business owner to understand “When do you need a Lawyer?”
