Many people have the notion that attorneys are sharks waiting to rip off your hard earned money from your pockets. But that is far from the case.
Whether you are a shareholder in a multinational company having sequestration disputes, a victim of a fraudulent property dealership, a small enterprise looking for dispute settlement or a proper legal plan for entering the corporate world – we get you.
Contrary to popular belief, consulting an attorney on time does not delay your case or rip off your pockets – in fact, it is the opposite. We understand why you might not want to seek counsel of an attorney and want to take up matters in your own hand. However, you could avoid or minimize those problems too, by careful planning, such as:
If you consult a lawyer in Belgium on time and have a proper legal plan with them in the first meeting you could avoid a lot of money wasted on planning in the first 4 to 5 meetings. You could reduce those meetings to one if you list down all the questions and expectations you may have of your lawyer and ask them those within the first meeting. Remember, saving your lawyer’s time would also mean saving your money.
Many times people may hesitate disclosing their assets and property to their attorneys and eventually to the beneficiaries that may not even know you possess those assets in the first place. While you should not want to hide anything from your lawyer as they are your best friend in legal
needs. For instance, not disclosing the full information for the case now would only end them up in the court after you die. Last, you can always request your lawyer to keep complete privacy over your assets and/or any other information you want to keep secret.
Most people go to their lawyers thinking they should keep up an appearance of my-family-is-the-best in front of them. However, if you have a legal dispute going on, it is far from your best interests to hide their doings from your lawyer. However, remember, your lawyer is human too. They, too, have seen the cruel side of the world while solving thousands of cases. Your lawyer won’t judge you but empathize with you and think more clearly to come up with a better legal plan keeping in view of your family hierarchy and needs.
The same goes for legal disputes with colleagues or friends.
Search for lawyers who have specialized in their fields
While it is not mandatory for you to hire a lawyer to represent you in court, handling too much information and legal paperwork may take a toll on you given the emotional rollercoaster you may be going on along with it. Knowing specialized professionals in the problem you are seeking a solution for might be in your best interest.
Fortunately, states in Europe allow attorneys to specialize in a particular area, such as estate law, medical law, traffic law, criminal law, sequestration law etc, you could always narrow down your search list to specialized group of lawyers.
Given the specialized search focus, you can now narrow down your search based on these additional factors:
Almost all states require a lawyer to complete a specific period of time in their field of law (mostly 5 years or more) before they are able to apply for specialization. Hence, a specialized lawyer would be better equipped to win your case with the tailored experience they have gathered over the years.
In addition to requiring a vast experience over a period of time, states also require that a specialized attorney present a number of referrals, complete specialized training courses and pass the specific certified exams to become specialists. Hence, a higher chance of winning your case with all that knowledge!
A compassionate lawyer would not only understand your case better, they would better be able to project your needs while representing your case in court. Remember, while it is only natural to want to hide your emotions, doing so in a court proceeding may not be your best idea. Being honest with your lawyer means a higher chance of your situation being represented to the judge.
