Reasons Why You Need Legal Assistance
We are likely to need legal help at least once a year, yet the majority of of us do not actively seek legal help.
This is borne out of data from a survey performed by Leo J. Shapiro & Associates, on behalf of the American Bar Associationís Section of Litigation, which shows that close to 3/4 of American adults experience some event during a twelve-month period that may require the services of a lawyer. Over half of those who needed an attorney chose not to hire one, and close to 80% of those yet to experience legal problems gave strong indications they might go down the same path.
So why all the negativity? Price is the most outstanding point for most consumers. When it comes to hiring a lawyer, hourly fees ranging from about $100 up to $1000 are out of reach of most peopleís budget. And then comes the unease of searching for a good attorney and the right service: there is a lot of uncertainty and confusion as what a lawyer will do, and how to tell the good from the bad.
Having an attorney gives you appeasement with the knowledge that there is someone you can use for advice and aid on anything of legal nature.
