Conventional wisdom (and many lawyers) will tell you that, if you’re a business owner or manager, you will get yourself in trouble if you don’t have a good business lawyer. But when I hear this, I view this as somewhat of a negative statement, which frankly annoys me. I assume that smart business people do not want to be belittled and told that, they if they don’t have a lawyer, they will be too naive or inexperienced to avoid pitfalls.

It can be difficult for anyone when it comes to financial management. We need money to pay bills, buy groceries, pay utilities, pay for entertainment and purchase many other things.

What happens when you can’t find food or afford to eat, what happens when food shelters send you away empty handed or had out old breads and foods that have been in cans in the back of warehouses for what tastes like decades.
Your chosen lawyer has the experience needed to handle your case. Don’t be taken in by first impressions only, although they are definitely important. Ask your potential lawyer if he or she has handled similar cases before, how many, and what the outcomes were. You will need someone who can openly discuss their background dealing in similar cases, and who is willing to disclose the outcomes to you.
Ask about experience and qualifications – does the lawyer have experience with your type of case? How long has the lawyer been practicing? Does the lawyer have any specialized training or certification?
