Why You Should Speak To An Attorney Before A Legal Issue Arises

Why You Should Speak To An Attorney Before A Legal Issue Arises

People tend to seek out an attorney after they have experienced a legal issue.  For example, if a tenant gets into a dispute with her landlord because the hot water in her apartment does not work after she has signed the lease and moved in, chances are that she will call an attorney to help resolve the issue.

But very few people speak to an attorney before they have experienced a legal issue. In the example above, the tenant could have spoken to an attorney before renting her apartment. Her attorney could have reviewed her lease agreement, possibly negotiated better lease terms for her, and maybe even explained what to do until problems like the hot water issue are fixed by the landlord.
Speaking to an attorney before experiencing a legal issue is a lot less expensive than having to call an attorney after you have a legal issue. In fact, you should think of speaking to an attorney as an investment in your future. Speaking to an attorney before experiencing a legal issue allows you to minimize or eliminate the chances of a problem arising in the future. In the event that a legal issue does arise in the future, then you have an attorney that you know and trust who previously assisted you because you have already “tested the waters” with your attorney.
In addition to the example above, you can use an attorney before experiencing a legal issue to assist you with the following:
  • Purchasing a home
  • Purchasing or leasing a car
  • Purchasing a boat
  • Starting a business or “lawsuit-proofing” an existing business
  • Filing for a patent or trademarking a name
  • Reviewing automobile, homeowner’s, and boater’s insurance policies.
Before you sign your next lease agreement or purchase a car, think outside the box and speak to an attorney. It may be one of the best investments you make.
