Like we said, the law is complex. Laws were written to be understood and interpreted by attorneys -- not lay people such as yourself.
For instance, did you know that a person is a "lawyer" if they graduate from law school? They then become an “attorney” if they pass the bar exam and enter the State Bar Association for the state in which they practice law. If a lawyer does not go on to become an attorney, then that person cannot practice law in a particular jurisdiction.
Law (like medicine) is called a "practice" because of "the actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method, as opposed to theories relating to it." In other words, you don't want a doctor or a lawyer who does not actively practice their craft. They simply won't be any good at it, and that could mean, life (in prison) or death (on an operating table). Neither is an option--especially when relying on someone else to aid you in your time of need. Not to mention the cost.
The old saying is that "you get what you pay for." We cannot tell you how many times potential clients ended up paying us more to get them out of a jam, because they opted to go for a cheaper option. Here's the thing. With injury cases, they are handled on what is known as a contingency. The firm bares all the cost until the case is either settled out of court or at trial.
Nevertheless, criminal, family and other civil matters do have up-front costs. It's better to retain us on the front end, when the case is still free and clear of mistakes, than it is to hire us after going elsewhere and getting a poor or unwanted outcome. Doing so drives up the complexity of your case and increases the cost to represent you. At Ezim Law Firm, we do not provide free consultations, because our time and expertise is valuable. Listen, we won't steer you wrong, and we won't waste your time with promises we cannot keep either.
