Some people avoid hiring an attorney because they think it will be expensive. Armed with information found online, along with what they may have heard from a friend or family member, they wade into complex legal issues such as criminal charges, divorce and estate planning.
Unfortunately, the cost of a mistake can be far higher than the cost of hiring a professional attorney. And by the time you realize you need an attorneyâ€™s help, it may be too late to undo the damage.
