Quote of the Day - Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? - Mae West

A Lawyer In Your Pocket?

You may say it would be better to have a judge in your pocket, but then, so does everyone else.  I'm talking about a level playing field, with a lawyer in your pocket.  You know, the kind you can ask any question to when you have a legal problem, and get a solid answer that will avoid you having to breach a contract, make a mistake that actually would be a crime or anything else that would land you in a courtroom.

Why not?  You can get a doctor in your pocket with Web MD, so why not all professions, especially law?

Diagnosing a medical condition can be a difficult proposition.  So can diagnosing a legal problem.  But for those problems that have not yet landed you in court, good legal advice can steer you away from that eventuality. 

If you think about it, you do have a lawyer in your pocket.  It's your cell phone.  When you're facing a difficult legal problem, do what my clients do.  Pick up the phone and call your laywer.  We're happy to answer your questions, and even happier when our advice avoids landing you in court.

For those who call their lawyers and get good advice, you're lucky.  Many others who don't call end up calling when a legal disaster hits, and then it's too late.  At that point, you need the other part of what I do - litigation.  It's time consuming and can be very costly.

Good legal advice before the problem hits is worth its weight in gold, especially since you will never experience the inside of a courtroom.  Pay your lawyer a visit and avoid hiring me.  Otherwise, I'm glad to take your call.

Have encountered the type of lawyer who won't settle because doing so means her client is no longer her cash machine.
Add to that the fact that she Tweets her sneezes and when her 8 year old laptop breaks down....and I do wonder why her client hasn't figured it out....
