Whatever circumstances cause you to seek legal advice, you probably are anxious about an attorney consultation, especially if you never have consulted with an attorney, or if you or someone you know has had an unpleasant experience with a lawyer. The event that prompts you to call an attorney’s office may already have caused you much anxiety.
You may have been injured, your business may have been sued, your employer may have treated you unfairly, you may have been charged with a crime, your employees may have accused you of mistreating them, or you may have been a victim of professional malpractice. Whatever the reason, you have concerns about your legal rights and responsibilities. You may also have concerns about dealing with an attorney. Polls consistently show that Americans do not place much trust in the legal profession.
Lawsuits, legal disputes and legal options are full of uncertainty. However, if you need an attorney one thing is certain: you want a knowledgeable and competent attorney whom you trust to give you sound advice.
