There is an old saying, “a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client”. While this adage often rings true in criminal cases, the same can be said with civil and commercial matters. The internet provides a wealth of legal information. With a quick Google search you can find a lot of information about your case that would not have otherwise been available to you so easily prior to the internet age. While you may be tempted to tackle your legal matter on your own, hiring a lawyer is a worthwhile investment.
An experienced trial attorney has the knowledge to increase the odds of securing a verdict in your favor. Just as you are highly experienced in your business, trial attorneys have the education, training, and experience in going to court and fighting for you. When hiring an attorney, consider how long the attorney has practiced in a specific area and if the attorney is familiar with cases like yours as provided in the “Statement of Clients’ Rights” approved by the Florida Supreme Court. Also, make sure that the attorney takes the time to answer all of your questions because the best attorneys are dedicated to guiding you through each step of the legal process.
