When should you contact an attorney about retaining legal services? Most people wait too long. You should contact a lawyer early on in the legal process, so you can:
- Understand your rights
- Know what to do to protect your rights
- Realize what will happen moving forward
Many people call our firm asking if they should schedule a consultation, and when we tell them yes, they often do not come in initially. In many cases, the client will come back later, but their legal situation has developed and is much more difficult to manage.
We realize that contacting an attorney for legal services can be intimidating, and it may feel odd to call a lawyer. We want to assure you that it is okay to call your attorney, even if your case does not move to litigation or turn into a complex legal battle.
At Tarantino Law, PLLC, we treat our clients with respect and kindness. People come to our office for consults and always leave knowing they have someone on their side. If you are like most, you do not deal with the court system every day and may not know what is going on with your case, why certain events are happening, or how a judge’s different rulings affect the case without the constant guidance of a lawyer.
Not knowing is scary, but understanding your options and learning about what will happen can put you at ease. Everyone deserves the strong support system our firm provides, so if you think you have a case, please do not put off scheduling and coming in for a consultation. In the legal world, sooner rather than later is always better!
