Getting Advice from an Attorney

In Misc Topics, Uncategorized by Tramontozzi Law

Attorneys have a thorough understanding of the law in their specialized field, and are able to convey their understanding to you for your own personal matters. If you aren’t sure what the next steps are in your own legal matters or every day life,  seek the help of an attorney. The law is quite complex and there are many circumstances where getting quick advice from an attorney would help, even if its not related to a lawsuit.

Most attorneys offer an introductory consultation call free of charge, so be sure to use this to your advantage. Below are a variety of ways you can receive advice from an attorney:

Understanding your rights and what options you have:
  • While you may think it’s costly to see any attorney, spending a small amount now might help you avoid making costly mistakes in your business or personal life.
  • All discussions remain confidential, while conversations with your family and friends do not
  • It can be as simple as reviewing a contract or discussing your potential options.
Mediating problems:
  • If you are unsure what your rights are in a conflict you are in, for instance your ex won’t follow your custody or child support order, a quick call to an attorney will give you piece of mind and outline your possible routes of action. It could take a quick call, from lawyer to lawyer, to defuse the issue. Or say you have a tenant that you are subletting to, and you want to draw up a contract agreement to ensure you are paid and the terms are clear to both parties.
  • Your attorney can certainly help with this, either free or for very little cost to you.
  • The attorney can write a letter on your behalf that may keep you out of court, consulting with an attorney quickly can save you time and money in legal proceedings in the long run.
Preparing legal documents:
  • When you are setting up trusts or power of attorney documents for example, one error even as small as a typo can result in the document being rejected. These are important documents, and you want to be sure you have an attorney preparing and reviewing them.
If you’re involved in a situation with another lawyer:
  • Say you’re in a car accident, or in a contract dispute, and the other party has a substantial advantage by having a lawyer when you don’t, it’s best to protect yourself accordingly.
  • When you represent yourself, you allow for the possibility of being taken advantage of, being misled, or being misguided into a decision you will later regret. You want to be sure to prepare accordingly and protect your rights.

These are just some of the ways an attorney can be your trusted advisor even when you don’t have an immediate need or formal lawsuit.
