I may be facing some legal challenges, do I need a lawyer?

Depending on the legal matter, trying to determine if you need a lawyer is a question many people ask, and Jesse Herman of Jesse Herman Law in Hamilton responds with the following.

The fundamental reason for hiring a lawyer like Mr. Herman is for the legal expertise; that, and the lawyer’s familiarity with the legal system. Most people do not have an in-depth and up-to-date understanding of the law, nor do they have the savvy to effectively navigate legal matters towards a successful outcome.

Consider what the legal issue is that might lead you to wonder if you need a lawyer. For example, if you’re currently going through a divorce and it’s an amicable split, you may not necessarily need a lawyer though there are still reasons why you should receive legal advice. Otherwise, you could fall into the trappings of making erroneous assumptions. Next point: If that same divorce is not amicable and friction exists, be it over assets or children, how do you expect to fare if your ex has hired a lawyer and you have no legal representation? You’ll have very little choice if you want to proceed wisely. A lawyer like Mr. Herman is there to protect your interests.

The same applies for virtually any area of the law, including, by example only, personal injury or real estate law. Beware of allowing yourself to believe that your case will win out based on your definition of rights and reason. One central truth you could find yourself learning the hard way is just how detailed or involved the law can be. Do you have a fundamental understanding of any one area of the law? Are you expert at research? Do you understand legal terminology, the law as it concerns you, or court proceedings?

If you’re not confident speaking in public, or are easily overwhelmed in a stressful environment, such as speaking in front of a judge in a formal, courtroom setting, then having legal representation can be more than advantageous, it can be crucial to a good outcome.

Plus, in addition to a lawyer’s better understanding of the law and legal procedures, a lawyer can be your “mouthpiece” to voice your concerns succinctly and appropriately.

Some situations involve narrow issues that a self-represented party may be able to handle. It’s always a good idea to do a cost-benefit analysis to determine how much money you are willing to put towards legal fees in contrast to the amount of money you stand to gain if successful at court. Some lawyers, including Jesse Herman, offer services where they will help with the paperwork and send you to court on your own (provided you, as the client, are comfortable with this) thereby saving you costs.

Getting legal advice early in your matter can help you to understand how the law applies to your situation. That same advice can protect you, help you to understand your rights and responsibilities, and avoid any unnecessary cost and stress at a later time.
