What Do I Need a Lawyer For?: Legal Reasons #28

courage-is-the-most-important-attribute-of-a-lawyer-quote-1I get that as a question from many in a somewhat joking manner, but really the undertone is always the same. What can a lawyer do that a laymen not do?  Well, to be fair, I can see the logic in that question, but in the realm of personal injury, family and employment law, knowledge and experience play a key role in ensuring you are not taken advantage. The reality is that Insurance companies notoriously count on non-represented parties to be unaware of what they are actually owned.

In the context of family law, if you have significant assets such as a house or a partner who suddenly empties out the bank accounts before leaving, it is important to have a lawyer to ensure you are able to recover or have your interests defended.

In employment law, if you are an employer in California, it is important to have someone who can update you on the new changes in the law such as recent suitable seating law or the fact on discharge, an employee must be paid all wages due.  Most employees are not aware of the penalties due to them because of improper payment.

So while it may look to you that a lawyer may be overkill, more often  than not, it will be well worth your time to give one a call. Our offices offers free consultations, and even if it’s a small claim, you at least, may get to know if you have a claim, and its potential worth.
