Hiring the wrong lawyer can cost you a lot of time and money.
Many lawyers will take over your matter, which may initially give you a false sense of relief, because you’ve handed the responsibility over the someone else.
But lawyers earn more money, the longer a matter goes for. So you need to understand the processes and options a lawyer is laying out for you.
You also want to find a lawyer with the right level of expertise in your area – not all lawyers are created the same. Although a lawyer may say they know what they’re doing – how do you know they do? Even they don’t know what they don’t know ..!
Legally Wise Women can help you learn to vet lawyers, how to ask the right questions, and also send you to fixed-fee lawyers so you won’t get bill-shock.
We can also be your second-opinion, and help guide you through the advice that a a lawyer is giving you.
