The law surrounds nearly every aspect of our daily lives. It provides us with do’s and do not’s; allows a person who has been wronged to seek remedy; increases public safety; allows us to transfer land and property; and allows us to enter into agreements where the parties’ rights and obligations can be enforced. Many of these legal issues require the expertise and skill of a person trained in the law – a Lawyer.
A Lawyer is a licensed professional who advises, counsels, assists, and represents other people in legal matters. A Lawyer may negotiate agreements on behalf of his client, appear in court in a criminal or civil case, draft contracts, draft wills and plan estates, and render candid and confidential advice. Lawyers must receive a license to practice from the state supreme court. At a minimum, a Lawyer must possess a four-year bachelor’s degree, graduate from a three-year law school accredited by the American Bar Association, pass the state bar examination, pass a multi-state ethics and professional responsibility exam, pass a rigorous background and character and fitness investigation, and take an oath to uphold the laws and the state and federal constitutions.
The American Bar Association suggests that a person should consult a lawyer about major life-changing events such as:
- being arrested for a crime or served with legal papers in a civil suit;
- being involved in a serious accident causing personal injury or property damage;
- a change in family status such as divorce, adoption, or death;
- a change in financial status such as getting or losing valuable personal property or real estate, or filing bankruptcy.
However, not all issues require the skills and expertise of a lawyer. Some issues may be better handled by another licensed professional such as a doctor, mental health professional, social worker, or clergy. For other issues, the person may choose to represent himself or herself.
If you decide to seek the assistance of a Lawyer for your legal issues, rights, and obligations, please contact our office to schedule an appointment for your personal and confidential consultation.
