How to Know When You Need to Call an Attorney

You shouldn't wait until you are in trouble before soliciting the services of a lawyer. Sacramento residents and those across the nation who are in need of immediate legal assistance know the importance of retaining an attorney as soon as possible. Here are some specific situations where it's imperative you call an attorney.

Trouble with the Law
If you get into trouble with the law and are taken off to jail for whatever reason (DUI, tax fraud, domestic violence, or other criminal activities), you will need to speak to an attorney. You have the right to remain silent until you do. This means you don't have to answer any questions posed by law enforcement. If you don't have a specific lawyer to call right away, ask for a referral to one who is experienced and trustworthy.

Accident or Injury
Once you have suffered any type of bodily harm in a car accident, you should seek legal counsel. You should also call for legal assistance if you have been injured on the job.

Estate Planning
For planning your estate, seek the help of an expert lawyer. Sacramento has many estate planning professionals who are experienced in that particular field of law.

Business Contract
If you are in the process of engaging in any type of business endeavor that involves signing a contract, you should contact a corporate attorney. Anything that has to do with large sums of cash and long-term business commitments requires the specialized knowledge of a lawyer. Sacramento attorneys are available for those who live in the area.

If you are legally separated and have decided to get a divorce, it is time to talk to a divorce professional, especially if the divorce is being contested or if assets need to be divided. Be sure to seek the help of a lawyer. Sacramento attorneys will help you to resolve the pending issues at hand.

If you find yourself in any of these situations, contact an attorney! Most legal professionals will see you for the initial consultation to discuss your case in more detail. Bring along as much evidence and documentation as possible to the scheduled meeting.
