Ever notice how the same thing can look quite different to another person? An example is what different people may see when looking at clouds in the sky above. Different formations, faces, and meanings abound. No real right or wrong answer I suppose. Just a matter of perspective and perception….now let’s flash forward to an example where perspective is even more important and some right and wrong answers are usually part of the discussion.
When contemplating your legal options it is best to obtain a perspective other than your own. Not too many perspectives though–especially regarding the intricate facts of your case—as you could destroy the confidentiality and integrity of your case. But, at a minimum, you should seek the perspective of a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer. Depending on the nature of your legal matter, the consultation may be free and you could gain some valuable insight on your legal matter. But even if you have to pay a consultation fee it may be well worth the money, time, and headache saved in the long run.
Often a client is emotionally tied to a case and this can affect judgment and perception of key issues. Other inhibiting factors can be a lack of knowledge or resources to identify and address the major relevant issues involved in embarking on a legal matter. I am no auto mechanic so I cannot begin to replace and engine or even repair an engine. If you are not a lawyer, why would you want to try to figure out the rules of evidence and civil procedure as well as trying to determine how best to present your case? A good lawyer can help you examine your scenario, provide an objective assessment of your position, and provide advice and direction on what you may need to do to move forward. An essential feature of your consultation should be the professional perspective on your legal matter which helps you make an informed decision as to how to proceed.
The choice is yours and the case is yours. Use your time and money wisely and do your due diligence before proceeding. If you seek a free consultation for your legal matter contact the O’Neal Law Office—home of personal attention, professional results.
