We get it; no one gets excited about the prospect of having to hire a lawyer. At a point in which legal counsel becomes absolutely necessary, the situation—be it a family dispute or a soured business relationship—has typically taken a turn for the worse. Therefore, it’s understandable that engaging legal counsel often has a negative connotation. Coupled with the fact that the law is complex and confusing, it’s no wonder that people are hesitant to pick up the phone and seek advice.

The problem with that is, the legal challenges someone may be facing are often made worse by failing to consult a lawyer early enough. As a result, the legal issues involved may be more time consuming, difficult, and expensive to remedy than they would have been with earlier intervention by experienced counsel. In this sense, legal services are like medical services: a penny of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

At Foster Swift, we’re here to help you when you may not be sure where to turn for accurate, practical legal advice. When it comes to hiring a lawyer, many people seek recommendations from those in their close-knit circle of family and friends. Often, this leads to a mismatched referral to a lawyer who is not suited—based on experience and expertise—to handle your unique situation. Indeed, every legal matter is unique, involving nuanced facts and circumstances, and it’s critical that you consult not just a lawyer, but the right lawyer for the job.
