When To Consult a Family Lawyer
You know you are supposed to see a dentist twice a year for good oral health, but do you know which circumstances warrant the advice of legal counsel?
They say it takes a village to raise a child but responsible adults normally have a village to support them as well. For example, most people consult a dentist twice a year to have their teeth cleaned, they have a handyman who does small jobs around their home, and they could discuss personal finances with a wealth management consultant to ensure all their ducks are in a row for retirement. However, when it comes to obtaining a lawyer, most people do not seek legal counsel until it is too late. You would be surprised to learn how often the advice of a barrister is warranted for everyday matters. By planning ahead and finding a lawyer you trust, you will be more confident and prepared when, and if, a legal issue arises.
Choosing the proper lawyer is a very personal decision because you will need to depend on them during some of life’s most tumultuous and unnerving times. Here are some reasons you may need to hire a family lawyer:
- Prenuptial Agreements
- Divorce and Separation
- Adoptions and Guardianships
- Drafting Wills
- Child Support and Legitimized Children
- DUI and DWI
- Criminal Defense - ranging from traffic offenses and city/county ordinance violations to misdemeanors and felonies
- Unemployment Benefits
- Workers Compensation
- Medical Malpractice
- Personal Injury
- Products Liability
