If you need a divorce or modification involving your children and you and your ex are in complete agreement over the terms.
If you need a legal opinion or assessment of a problem or course of action, you can contract for only that service. For instance, you want to know if your new landscaping drainage plans will impede upon your neighbor's property rights?
You are allowed to represent yourself in small claims. But what if you need help drafting your paperwork or prepping your legal argument for trial?
Do you want to resolve a problem but aren't ready to commit to the full lawsuit process? Having an experienced lawyer to negotiate informally could resolve your matter without paying for Court.
Need a customized form and legal zoom doesn't cut it for you? Have an attorney draft your Living Will, Simple Will, Name Change, Power of Attorney, and other legal forms for personal use.
Are you a DIY'er set on handling your own case? Maybe it's a low value or small matter and you don't feel like full representation is necessary. You can still hire an Attorney to coach you through courtroom etiquette and procedure.
