Lawyers, we love to hate them. We live to mock them, and they don’t make that a hard task. You can pick their lack of conscience or their craving of money. The joke about being stuck in an elevator with a lawyer is the classic. But despite all the jabbing, we know that at some point we will need legal advice from an attorney. The legal business is designed to be a service that you will need, not one that you will want. If you listen to lawyers speak, it can sound like they are using a make believe language with imagined words. If you sit in on a court case, it isn’t like theater. They are talking amongst themselves, and you can tell even the client has no compression of what’s occurring.
But that doesn’t change the fact that at some point we’ll all need one. Here are some of the most common reasons.
We are all going to need a lawyer to deal with family matters at some point or another. It could be at the very end of your life when you are sorting out your will. Actually, you should make a will long before you think you are going to pass away. You never know what life holds in store for you around the next corner.
Or perhaps, with the divorce rating being fifty percent, you’re going to need a lawyer to ensure you aren’t taken to the cleaners. Divorce attorneys are necessary for ensuring that your divorce is a fair and just proceeding. Although it is advisable these days to also take the extra precaution of sorting out a prenup before the marriage. Better safe than sorry after all.
You wouldn’t steal an old lady’s purse, you wouldn’t steal a car, and you wouldn’t steal a film. Actually, statistics say that you probably would steal a film. You certainly might consider downloading a free music track. Yes, research shows that online piracy is on the rise. But unfortunately, the major entertainment companies have noticed. They’re banding together to defeat those pesky pirates for good. We all know they won’t succeed, and it’s not in an internet suppliers best interest to stop people using the net to download free entertainment. But, if you’re unlucky you might find a letter through your door threatening a hefty fine. If that occurs, you’ll certainly be thankful you know the number of a good lawyer.
When in a car accident, many people will check if they’re alright, and their passengers are safe. Some people, however, will immediately get on the phone to their lawyer. They might do this before they even think of calling the emergency services. Paranoid, you might say, but we’d argue they’re just sensibly cautious. You would be surprised how much someone can lose, having to pay for damages in a car accident if they are found to be even partly responsible.
Thus it would seem that hate them or love them, lawyers are a vital part of our lives.
