Determining If You Need a Litigation Lawyer

Posted on July 24th, 2021

When you are going into any kind of legal battle, you want to know that you are going to be as prepared as possible. In some instances, you may not need a litigation attorney and will only need a lawyer who can negotiate with insurance or make sure that you have everything signed on a legal document. However, it is important to understand when it is the right time to have a litigation attorney. If you are planning to go to court or there is a possibility that you will need to go to court, a litigation lawyer can be of help to your case. If you are going up against another party in a legal battle, you should have someone who has studied the law by your side.

In what situations might you need a litigation attorney? 

There are a few situations where you will likely know early on that you will want to hire a litigation attorney. 

  • You are in the middle of a business dispute. When you own a business or are in charge of a business, it is almost always a wise decision to have a lawyer available to help you through legal matters. Unfortunately, business and contract disputes will happen, and having a law firm, like a litigation law firm from an office like Brown Kiely, LLP on your side can help you even if you do not end up going to trial. A good litigation lawyer can help you settle outside of court and help you prepare if going to court is necessary. 
  • Someone is accusing you of a crime. If you are being accused of a crime, it is never best to try to defend yourself. You may think that you could certainly settle a misunderstanding easily, but that is not necessarily the case. It is always best to be prepared with a litigation lawyer who can steer you in the right direction and help you understand how going to court will work. 

Will an attorney tell me if I need their services? 

You may be concerned that any attorney will simply bring you on as a client to get money. This should not be the case. You want to research your local attorneys, look for those who specialize in litigation, and meet with them to see if they will be a good fit. Ultimately, hiring a litigation attorney will be your decision and should be one you feel comfortable with. If you are looking for a litigation attorney, find a local law firm you can trust.
