Yes, it is true that not every case demands the use of an attorney. But most cases do have a legal dimension and require legal assistance. While every legal situation is different, there are certain instances when hiring a lawyer is non-negotiable. Here are 3 reasons to hire a lawyer.
- The law is complex. Most legal concepts come across as straightforward and easy to grasp. But when the complexity of real life conflicts with the law, loopholes form and so-called exceptions may arise. For example, it is illegal to kill someone, but what if you kill the person in self-defense Although this may be an extreme example, it proves the point that there is always a counterargument. Your case is more likely to be resolved with fewer repercussions with a knowledgeable and emotionally detached attorney.
- Save money. Many shy away from the idea of hiring an attorney due to the fear of expensive legal fees. You may be entitled to claim fees if you are a plaintiff in a civil case. A lawyer can help you save or even make money when winning a case.
- Know how to contest or suppress evidence. You may not be aware that the evidence being used against you was illegally acquired. A lawyer can find out whether the evidence being used against you is bonafide and if it was obtained in a legal way.
