When Do You Need a Lawyer

You will not generally need the services of a lawyer until you find yourself with a legal problem requiring proper legal representation. Of course, most people see a lawyer when they are already in difficulties. It is generally best to talk to a lawyer and head off any trouble that is on the horizon before it gets out of control.
