3 Things You Need To Know About Hiring Lawyers
WHY don’t people like to hire lawyers? Is it the cost of legal services? Actually, most people do not contact attorneys (soon enough) because they don’t understand their situation to be legal. This is where FREE CONSULTATIONS
are beneficial. 3 Things You Need To Know About Hiring Lawyers:
1. Don’t wait to to find out if you have a case or need legal guidance;
2. Don’t assume you cannot afford a lawyer;
3. Don’t fall prey to the belief that you already know the law and your rights.
These 3 assumptions will negatively affect you if you do have a case or need legal assistance. Let the legal experts help you decide if you do (or do not) have a case, how much the case may be worth and how long it will take to turn your situation around.
Steven DeYoung, founding partner of Carter DeYoung Attorneys at Law in Hyannis states, “Many people are under the mistaken belief that they are only entitled to receive compensation for their medical expenses and lost wages when they are usually entitled to a significantly greater recovery. However, lawyers pursuing recovery for clients are not magicians; they are only able to assist in assuring that the client receives fair compensation based upon the nature and extent of the client’s injuries. Compensation is intended to make a client whole, not to make him/her wealthy.”

I like this video’s recommendation not to wait to hire a lawyer. It makes sense that waiting when dealing with a legal situation would cause some serious problems. I’ll have to remember to have a lawyer to call in case of any sort of problem to ensure there aren’t any major mistakes made while trying to find one.
Thank you for your comment. It is indeed one of the most common pitfalls that our local Cape Cod attorneys reveal. The sooner they can assist with a claim or case, the more opportunity they have to help their client(s). The two most frequently asked questions are ‘Do I need a lawyer’ and ‘Can I afford a lawyer?’ We hope all will assume the answer to both questions is ‘Yes’ and use the resources at Local Lawyers Referral to find information and/or the right lawyer to suit their purposes. Again, most attorneys offer Free Consultations to determine whether or not to proceed.
