When do you need to consult with an attorney?
Answer: The best time to consult with an attorney is when you don't need one. Whenever you have concerns about a potential problem, that's the time to talk to a lawyer.
Here are a few of the reasons to consult with an attorney:
I practice what I preach. Whenever I have a legal question, I go to an attorney that practices in that area of the law and pay for an hour of their time. When I leave their office I know the following: (a) the current laws and how courts are interpreting them; (b) if there is a time limit for either side to act; (c) if there is anything I can do to protect myself, and (d) strategies in the event litigation becomes necessary.
