3 Common Reasons to Seek Legal Advice

In our experience here at the Law Office of Melissa Stewart, formerly Groff Law Firm, many people associate lawyers with criminal cases or dramatic courtroom battles, but the reality is that many lawyers work on much more common, everyday matters. In fact, many people don’t realize that they might need legal advice until their situation has already become dire, when consulting a lawyer earlier on could have saved them a lot of trouble and stress. To help you avoid this same trap, our team has put together this article going over three of the most common reasons to seek legal advice. If you find yourself dealing with a similar scenario, we encourage you to give us a call.

  1. Financial Troubles- One of the most common problems that leads people to seek legal advice is financial strain. If you are in debt and struggling to make payments, consulting a lawyer can go a long way toward helping you recover financially and get on more stable footing. Our team has extensive experience in bankruptcy law, and you can count on us to help you dig yourself out of your current circumstances.
  2. Separation- Another good reason to seek legal advice is if you and your partner want to separate. Our team also has a great deal of experience in divorce and separation law, so you can count on us to help you through your next steps.
  3. End-of-Life Planning- A third reason to consult a lawyer is to get help with your end-of-life planning. While it’s not fun to think about your eventual passing, having a plan in place will help ease your family’s burden and spare them from any feelings of guilt after you are gone. Our experts are here to provide the knowledgeable legal advice you need to make the best decisions for you and your family.
