Many people are hesitant to consult or hire a lawyer when facing a legal issue. Oftentimes, this is due to believing that they can resolve the matter without the hassle or expense of involving an attorney. Unfortunately, this can have significant consequences. As longtime attorneys, the team at Skeeters, Bennett, Wilson & Humphrey sees this happen far too often.
Recently, we received a distressing call from an individual who had been sued. This person acted promptly and made a seemingly reasonable decision without legal consultation. To someone exercising common-sense thinking, it may have seemed like the right choice. However, the law is complex, complicated, and confusing, especially if you're not a trained, licensed, and experienced attorney. Instead of being appropriate or advantageous, the decision the individual made without legal guidance was a terrible mistake. Sadly, it was the precisely wrong choice for the situation, severely weakening the case and the chances for a successful outcome. This person finds themselves in a much worse situation than he would have been had he simply picked up the phone and called someone who had the right answer right at their fingertips.
At Skeeters, Bennett, Wilson & Humphrey, we hate to see our clients or anyone in the community find themselves under the stress and strain of a legal system they know nothing about and haven't the slightest idea how to navigate, especially when one wrong move can have real and lasting negative consequences. Don't risk your case or your future--seek highly skilled guidance and representation from the start.
