With many legal issues – getting divorced, drafting up a will, etc., of course you can handle it yourself. There are lots of resources everywhere you look that can assist you in these matters very inexpensively. If money is really an issue for you, and you have the time, this may very well be a good option for you. However, if you have the means to hire a lawyer, it can save you lots of time and headache, for even the “simplest” legal matter. It is quite typical that Robert Good’s office receives calls from people who tried to do their own divorce and either couldn’t deal with the motherlode of paperwork involved or did make it through the paperwork but did it incorrectly and are now suffering the consequences. Lawyers are here to make sense of the confusing maze of laws and processes that make up our legal system, and to help lead you through it in the most comfortable way possible. Again, sure you can do it yourself. But the lawyer will 9 times out of 10 do it better.
My legal issue seems simple enough. With all kinds of forms and do-it-yourself help available out there on the internet and everywhere these days, why would I hire an attorney?
