Why do I need a lawyer?

08/04/2019

Lawyers specialise in understanding the law. In the same way that any professional specialises in their chosen field, lawyers specialise in understanding the intricacies and complexities of all types of law governing how our society operates. It’s entirely unreasonable to expect anyone who is not a lawyer to understand how the law works as well as a legal professional. So when do you need a lawyer? When you need someone to help you understand the law, and your rights and entitlements governed by it.

Because the law is so complex and so detailed, it can often be a very stressful field to navigate when you have had little experience with it before, or even, if you are quite familiar with how the process works. Maintaining your rights and knowing what your entitlements are can make a significant difference when you find yourself in a legal situation. A cool headed and objective professional can also offer a refreshing distance to what might be a very distressing situation.

Lawyers can do as little or as much as you would like. The idea of engaging a legal professional to help you and your legal situation is to reduce the stress and complexity of your experience. We are here to help.

“What can a lawyer do for me?”

The most common service people tend to associate with lawyers is representation in court. We absolutely can represent your interests in court, but we can also represent you in mediation discussions, other types of hearings, tribunals, send letters on your behalf, negotiate for you, etc.

We can also help you to understand complicated contracts, forms, agreements, clauses. We can help you fill in your forms, explaining each step as we proceed. We will listen to your concerns and help you to understand what you can do to reduce or get rid of them altogether.

We can help you to dispute decisions against you and your interests. We can provide expert opinions on how to proceed and the likelihood of your success.

We can advise on how to manage your records and where you can obtain further records you may need for a legal matter you are involved in.

Essentially, your lawyer can and will do as much as or little as you need them to. In this way we are very careful to explain, and ensure that you understand, what engaging the services of your lawyer will include before we begin working with you. It is very important that you understand exactly what is involved with any professional relationship you make so that both parties are aware of their rights and responsibilities. This avoids confusion and miscommunication later down the track.
