So many people have legal problems, and yet relatively few hire an attorney. In almost every case, this is because they believe they cannot afford legal assistance. And I would say they’re often correct. Having a lawyer at your side throughout a case is very expensive. Having an attorney handle your case is almost always better. If you can’t afford that, here are some ways that you can handle your case yourself, while getting attorney assistance.
Flat Fee Costs
Legal fees are traditionally charged by the hour. They can add up quickly in a contested matter, and as such, they become too much for a normal person to handle. Flat fees allow you to know exactly how much you are spending, and to know exactly what you’re going to get for those fees.
Limited Legal Assistance
How will flat fees help you in your legal matter? You will maintain control over your legal matter. Going before the court and arguing your case will likely be your duty (depending on what services you buy). You will be armed with professionally written motions and pleadings and the knowledge on how to use them.
Some examples of services we offer are:
- Sessions of legal advice where we discuss your problem and you are given detailed instructions on how to start or finish your legal issues.
- Writing your complaint, response or motion so that your legal matter is presented in a clear and persuasive manner.
- Reading what you’ve already written and giving you advice on how to improve it or what issues need to be addressed.
Why You Need This Service
You’re taking a significant gamble with your legal matter when you go at your legal matter on your own. A recent study out of Canada showed that only 12% of unrepresented parties actually win in court against an attorney.
These are terrible odds. If you can’t have an attorney handle your case from day one, you owe it to yourself to at least get the guidance or limited assistance of an attorney. You could probably change the oil on your car yourself, but wouldn’t it be better to have someone tell you how and give you the proper tools and oil for your vehicle before you start?
Many attorneys offer free consultations, but these consultations will rarely yield usable legal advice. Get something for your money; get usable advice that can help you succeed and put the odds more in your favor!
