There are many options for finding affordable legal advice. Four options are discussed in this article. 1. Many people have an attorney friend or family member, 2. Many people find lawyers who can do services Pro Bono, 3. Many people find lawyers that only charge if they win your case and 4. Many have a legal service through a company. My goal is to help you think and find the best option to protect your family for all legal needs.
The option of using family and friends who are attorneys is probably the most popular and least expensive option for legal rights advice. If the person you know who is a lawyer specializes in the area of law in which you need help and in the geographical location in which you live, this is an economical option. Family and friends either don’t charge anything or give a discounted rate for their services. Family and friends are often more available than a lawyer whom you don’t know. You can often feel more comfortable to communicate your legal needs and get sound legal rights advice from family and friend attorneys.
However, if family and friend attorneys don’t specialize in the area of law or geographical location for which you need help, finding an attorney for who does Pro Bono work is another option. For those who don’t know, Pro Bono work means the attorneys don’t charge you anything for their services. In many states, lawyers are required to do 50 hours of *Pro Bono work as a recommendation from the American Bar Association each year. Since it is a requirement as part of their jobs each year, they may be willing to help with your situation. Finding a lawyer who can do Pro Bono work may be tricky; they may have used all of their yearly required hours or it may take a lot of leg work calling or visiting different attorneys.
Similarly, there are attorneys in some television commercials who claim to only charge if they win your case. This option is something for you to think about and research if the attorneys claiming this can help you with your legal issue exist in your area. It may be attorneys that specializes in a different area of law that offer this option than the area of law in which you need legal help, however. This can be a good option if you are planning on going to court. Yet, some people don’t plan to go to court, but simply need some legal rights advice. This type of attorney wouldn’t be your best option if this is the case.
Possibly the least well known, yet most comprehensive affordable legal rights advice option is to find a legal service provided by a company in the United States. For those of you who wonder if this exists, let me put your mind at ease. There ARE companies available which can help with all legal rights advice, as well as preparation of wills, letters/phone calls written on your behalf, defense in court and other legal services. It may sound too good to be true, but it’s not. Since this is a very litigious society, an option like this would be very useful to many people in the USA, if they knew it existed and where to find it. Finding a company is simple, and doesn’t have to take a lot of time. In many countries, legal insurance is as common as health, life and auto insurances. It is also a requirement in some countries. In America, these companies aren’t as abundant as they are in other countries, but, none-the-less available. Where these options are available, this legal service can cost a small monthly fee, similar to other insurances.
Whatever option you choose, please search out all of the options to find out what would be best for your family. There is no need to stay in the dark anymore, since there are so many options available to you in today. To find out more about a company that can protect your family legally, just reach out – now!
