Business Law: Essential Legal Information for Small Business Owners
3 Comments

For Legal Issues, Always Hire an Expert.

2_men_window_small2In the long run it takes an attorney less time to research the issue as they deal with these issues daily. If you do not know a lawyer who specializes in the legal issue you need help with contact the local Bar Association for a referral. In most cases you will get a free hour of consultation so that you can determine if the lawyer can help you and if you have a comfort level.

  • Always interview more than one lawyer for any case.
  • Always get a price for services in advance and always cap legal fees if possible.
  •  Never pay a retainer unless absolutely necessary.
  • If possible get legal services on a contingency basis.

Always know that if the lawyer wins or loses he/she gets paid. Each situation is different do your homework and understand all the options that you have.

Wishing you business success!
