If you're facing any kind of legal situation, you might be wondering, “do I need a lawyer?” There are many reasons why the answer to this question is almost always yes, but the simplest one is that you need a lawyer because your life matters. If you are facing a criminal charge, the State has an experienced lawyer, the State has law enforcement officers, and the State holds all the cards. You should never face this alone. A attorney that cares can defend your rights, help you navigate the process, make sure that you have a voice in the courtroom and ultimately change your life for the better. Nothing good can come of going to Court by yourself.
If you have a family situation, a lawyer can help you understand the law, help you make decisions for your family and your future, and make you sure that you aren't taken advantage of or mistreated. I could go on and on about well meaning people who go to Court by themselves thinking that it is their best option when the reality is hiring the right lawyer is the most important decision they can make.
If you think you may need a lawyer, then you do and if you do, you deserve a good one.
