Do I Need A Lawyer?

If you’re asking yourself this question, chances are that you need a lawyer.

Some of the top reasons that people do not seek help from lawyers when problems arise in their personal and family lives, their work lives, or if they get in trouble with the police, is that they don’t understand that these situations are legal ones or that they need legal representation. Criminal and civil justice situations are common and widespread. There are millions of criminal and civil justice situations a year in the United States.

 

Almost any ongoing dispute or problem you have can benefit from a lawyer’s help. The easiest way to get results if you are having a problem is to have a lawyer write a letter on your behalf. Lawyers can also go into court for you and assert your rights.

 

Court Buddy can connect you with an experienced and trusted lawyer to see if and how one can help at an affordable cost. Court Buddy helps by managing the relationship between you and the attorney to ensure you get the highest level of professional service, responsiveness, and accountability.

 


Types of Legal Situations That May Require a Criminal or Civil Lawyer

Legal situations that involve issues with far-reaching consequences for individuals and families include:

 

1. Family Issues (divorce, child custody, child & spousal support);

2. Arrests and questions by police or other members of law enforcement;

3. Money and Personal Finances (benefits, debts, collections, credit scores, bankruptcy, taxes);

4. Housing (purchase, sales, rentals, leases & subleases, housing conditions, evictions, small claims);

5. DUIs and DWIs (driving under the influence or while intoxicated);

6. Tickets and Accidents (often involving injury or property damage);

7. Business Matters (agreements & contracts, employment, business disputes);

8. Business Finances (debt & collections, consumer protection, bankruptcy, tax);

9. Wills & Trusts (wills, trusts, probate, health care directives); and

10. Immigration (removal/deportation, Visas & green cards, citizenship).

 

These situations may raise criminal and civil legal issues and will have consequences shaped by criminal and civil laws. They can impact your livelihood, including loss of income, health, confidence, personal and family financial stability.
