We know that every two years over 50% of women face some form of legal problem. We also know that only about 13% of those women get professional advice, which is such a small number.
We believe that such a small number of women just professional advice is partly because they have had such a poor experience with the legal industry in a previous matter.
When a new legal issue arises, they are so frustrated to be in a situation again where they have to rely on someone else to help them, or that they’re being pulled into a legal battle at all.
We don’t want those women to be railroaded or to let their rights go.
There are plenty of free resources, free dispute resolution, and all sorts of other things to help women to be able to represent themselves. It’s just a matter of finding the right stuff and being educated, in terms of negotiation.
Finding and hiring the right lawyer is also really crucial.
You may have had a poor experience with the legal industry in the past, because of the lawyer that you had and because of the way it was managed or not managed, or the strategy that was used, or the guidance that you received.
Unfortunately, we all get tarred with the same brush, but it’s not the case that every lawyer is the same way.
Our Legally Wise Women community helps women to find those free resources and get educated on negotiations, so that they can deal with it themselves, or if they need some legal advice, they can just go for the advice and then manage a whole lot of the aspects themselves, or if they are going to be represented, they can actually manage that relationship with the lawyer far better and keep the lawyer honest, keep that relationship working for the best result for you.
Don’t be so frustrated that you just throw everything away. Understand that you can have a better experience. It quite often comes down to being better educated and knowing how to find the right lawyer.
