Do You Need a Legal Information or Guidance?

You have a legal problem or dispute. Do you know if you need to hire a Solicitor (Lawyer)? Or could you handle it yourself?

Are you thinking about purchasing a home, opening a business, or writing a Will?
Are you owed money and having difficulty collecting it?

Have you lost a Legal right because you could not afford a solicitor, or did not want to spend money hiring one?

Are you concerned that you might violate some Law, and be sued?

It is almost always better to instruct a solicitor to handle a legal problem or dispute. There are areas of the Law that can be very complex, requiring extensive knowledge that cannot be learned quickly. There are however certain areas of the Law that you can handle matters yourself providing there are no complications.

What are the advantages of handling a legal dispute or problem yourself?

The most obvious advantage is the financial savings you could make. Solicitors usually charge on an hourly basis for time spent on your case. This can prove to be very expensive and in many cases this expense can be avoided or reduced.

Dealing with a matter yourself can also lead to a faster resolution of the matter, as no one is more interested in resolving your problem or dispute than you.

Handling your own legal problems or disputes will be personally rewarding and give you confidence to deal with other problems or disputes you may confront in the future.
