In their rush to get things over and done with and find some relief, we often see women either completely giving up their legal rights, or putting their head in the sand and let someone else barrel over them.
Basically, they’re often completely walked all over, either because they’re given up or because they give in.
This is one of the things that frustrates us the most; that women find the anxiety or the uncertainty too much to step forward and deal with, or they don’t have the confidence to be able to work out what they want and know how to go about it.
So those are a couple of things that Legally Wise Women is addressing through this site and our community program.
- Through being able to find free, relevant resources.
- Having where to start kits, so that you can start confidently and know where you stand.
- Having a “How to find and hire the right lawyer” course, so that you understand the legal industry and understand what you’re looking for and know what questions to ask.
- And the other thing that we will be developing in the New Year is a course about “How to negotiate like a pro”, so that you have an understanding about what you actually want, rather than taking a position that you’re told to take, but advocating for what you want and how to go about that.
So let’s not have women walking away from their legal rights anymore, just for the sake of having something over and done with.
It’s now time that we have an equal footing, with men, who have a legal problem.
