Many of us will no doubt be able to get in touch with a plumber, electrician or mechanic in a moment’s notice, but how many of us can say the same for a lawyer. You are no doubt wondering why you should have a lawyer on speed dial and in what circumstance this may help, but I can assure you that there are many.
Around 4 years ago a good friend of mine was caught over the limit whilst behind the wheel, he had been to a party the evening before and misjudged his actions. In that instance my buddy had no idea where to get a lawyer from, and little time to do so. Eventually after calling many Prime Sydney criminal lawyers, I was able to find a law firm which could help him out. The problem is that not all lawyers are right for you and this is why having one or two ready, can help you out greatly should you require legal assistance. Let’s take a look at just some of the reasons why you may need to make that call.
Driving Under The Influence
You may be a law abiding citizen, but so was my friend before his charge, proving that anyone can make a mistake. Now you probably think that this is something that you would never do, but we are all human after all and we can never rule out making such a mistake. A good lawyer is needed in this situation to ensure that the process has been lawful, and that you receive a fair hearing.
Nobody marries with the intention of getting a divorce but it can happen, and very often does. The key to a ‘good’ divorce is to ensure that it is clean and swift, both things by which a good lawyer is needed in order to achieve. Whilst we are not suggesting that you seek out a divorce lawyer right now, it is important that you understand who in your local area operates within this area of the law, and who is recommended.
A huge number of legal cases each year are made either by, or against employers and this is an area where you will most definitely require professional legal assistance. Whether you have been wrongfully dismissed, you have a contract dispute, you have not received payment or you have had an accident or injury at work, you will need a lawyer that specializes in employee law. With this in mind, it is worth your while being aware of, and having the contact details, of a lawyer of this type whom you can trust and who will be prepared to take on your case. If you are going against your employers, you will need to ensure that you not only have a case, but also that you have excellent legal representation in order to take on a big fish.
As aforementioned, the hope is that you never need a lawyer, but having one on hand could greatly help you out.
