Why You Should Work with a Law Firm
While many television shows and movies have somewhat glamorized acting as your own legal counsel, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Regardless of the type of case you have and even if it is one where you need never appear in a court, having a law firm represent you is always going to be the best option. Here are some reasons why you should work with a law firm:
- You have a better chance of not needing to appear in court. While some cases inevitably do end up in court, it is often possible to avoid it when you work with a law firm with excellent negotiation skills.
- Your emotions can result in an unfavorable outcome. Pleading one’s case may involve an emotional plea from time to time, but it has to be employed in a careful manner and must involve the legal precedence to be convincing. It is challenging to represent yourself when all you know is what you are feeling.
- It can take a great deal of effort to learn the law. The only way you could represent yourself is with totally immersing yourself into the law pertaining to your case. Working with a law firm saves you that time and effort. In addition, you are unlikely to learn enough to be effective.
- An attorney carries more respect in the courtroom. It might not be fair, but when you act as your own legal counsel, you won’t be seen with the same respect that a lawyer from a law firm commands. It shouldn’t matter, but it does.
Secondly, I am an experienced educator. While I formerly worked in a high school setting as a teacher, I now use these skills in trials and negotiations as I present complex legal scenarios in an understandable manner.
Lastly, my law firm uses technology to meet the needs of our clients. When you turn to us for assistance with a legal issue, we will provide you with access to the secure online portal that we use to communicate and share crucial information with our various clients in the Statesville, North Carolina area.
