Legal Assistance


When should I seek professional legal advice?

Every legal situation is unique and requires specific legal analysis. In some cases, the wrong decision may cost you your legal rights. Here are some examples of when to seek a lawyer’s assistance:

  • Before signing any written contracts with major legal/financial provisions or consequences.
  • Before starting or buying a business.
  • When facing tax problems or questions.
  • When making a will or planning an estate.
  • If you are involved in an accident that results in personal injury or property damage.
  • If you are being investigated for a crime.
  • If you are being sued by someone, or if you want to sue someone.
  • When your family status has changed through marriage, adoption, divorce, guardianship, or otherwise.
