Do I need an Attorney

IMG_3658++You may have been told you do not need an attorney. Often the benefits of having an attorney are not realized until it is too late or a case is complete. You might hear that an attorney will cost more than just living with the problem or trying to solve the problem yourself. But nothing could be further from the truth. That is why it is so important for an attorney to understand their client’s goals before working on a case.

Every person comes into our office with some idea of what they want – a goal they are trying to reach, a wrong that needs to be righted, or a problem to be remedied. The same legal approach to every case does not always produce results that clients hope for. Simply because you “win” in the legal system, does not mean you are satisfied with the results. That is why setting clear goals and having a plan to accomplish those goals is important.

For example, in personal injury cases, the insurance industry has spent billions of dollars trying to convince people that they are wrong or greedy for hiring an attorney. When people do not hire an attorney, they pay less to settle their claims. Paying less to resolve claims means making bigger profits – and that is what they are in business to do.

Thomas Jefferson believed so strongly in the American judicial system that he said in a letter once that “I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.” The honesty and openness of a courtroom not only holds a government to the principles of the constitution, it levels the playing field between all people – rich, poor, powerful, meek, oppressors, and people who have been oppressed.
