Do I need an attorney?

When faced with the possibility of a lawsuit, many people want to seek the help of an attorney. Though it is possible to represent yourself in a lawsuit, there are cases where the assistance of an attorney is invaluable. Lawyers are not only trained in and very knowledgeable of the law, but have experience in preparing documents, courtroom procedure, settlement negotiation, and other aspects of legal proceedings. Some lawyers may even have experience in a case very similar to yours. The hiring of an attorney will help things to run more smoothly in your case, and may very will increase any potential judgment or settlement you may receive, depending on their skills and past experience in this area.

The purpose of this section is to help you familiarize yourself with the process of deciding to hire an attorney. When faced with the question “Do I have a lawsuit?”, there may be several degrees of an answer. An attorney will be able to asses your case and determine whether or not your suit has valid grounds, and hopefully after reading this site you will have a better idea yourself.

Contacting or hiring an attorney does not necessarily mean you are filing a suit against anyone. However, it is a good idea to do this if you feel you have a case. An attorney will be able to assess your case in the first meeting and advise you of your rights and options for litigating the case. Should you choose not to hire an attorney and you mishandle your own case due to lack of knowledge or lack of skill, it is unlikely that an attorney will be able to undo your mistakes and may even refuse to accept your case.

You must be comfortable sharing with an attorney any personal or otherwise confidential information about yourself. Though highly personal, these details can often help to create a more effective argument in your case. Your lawyer must be aware of everything that might pertain to your lawsuit, so you must be comfortable in sharing these details with another person.

The area of law into which your legal problem falls will help you a great deal in determining the lawyer that you want to hire. Many lawyers have a certain area of the law that they specialize in or have a great deal of experience in. It would be of great advantage to have an attorney who has had experience in and is familiar with the area of law in which your case falls. For instance, though your friend may highly recommend the lawyer who handled his divorce, this lawyer may not have much experience in Medical Malpractice.

Though many people may balk at the cost of hiring an attorney, the fees charged are usually worth the experience and professionalism an attorney can bring to the courtroom. There are certain areas of the law where an experienced lawyer is highly recommended, in order for you to have a fair trial and to negotiate the settlement that you deserve. Below is a brief description of several areas of the law where a lawyer is most certainly recommended.

Canadian Immigration Law Firm

Dery & Associates is a Montreal based immigration law firm that has recently made major changes in an effort to upgrade their site Canadim.com. After months of extensive research and development, they have officially launched their new website. Already established as one of the top Canadian Immigration law firms they have made their site faster, made major design upgrades as well as significant improvements to their visa assessment procedure.

"We have worked with a team of professionals to come up with a design and interface which is cutting edge in terms of design and functionality. In today's world, we wanted to make sure that we were leaders and not followers when it came to establishing an online presence. We want to emphasize direct contact with the clients and personalized service while balancing the many advantages of internet technology. Our new site allows for that in a way they won't find with any other firm." says Renaud Dery, managing partner. He goes on to explain that the way the industry is setup at the moment, most Canadian immigration websites are not using the internet to its fullest potential. With their new site, they've simplified things to the point where viewers don't have to be tech savvy to find what they're looking for and fill out their visa assessment.

The assessment forms cover each of the major Canadian immigration visas. Users will receive information about all of them in a simple yet detailed manner before being brought to the assessment most appropriate to their situation. "We have lawyers on standby ready to answer questions and help people through their process; we hold their hand the entire way through which is something most law firms could not promise." says executive director Richard Dery. He goes onto explain that viewers have the ability to fill out a visa assessment form for free which will then be sent to a lawyer who will personally review their information.

With the growing number of people immigrating to Canada, Canadim has taken steps to further establish themselves as not only one of the top Canadian Immigration law firms, but also one of the most technologically integrated by maximizing the use of the internet thus making the process faster, cheaper and much easier. Not only that, but their site is constantly upgrading in response to the changing habits of the viewers as well as the changing laws. "This is the third generation of the site, we learned from experience that what people are looking for is personalized service. Our new business model allows for potential clients to get well informed through the site, submit an assessment, and then get real life personalized service from an immigration lawyer. We're ready to serve them in a professional and cost effective manner."

  • the nature of marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships;
  • issues arising during marriage, including spousal abuse, legitimacy, adoption, surrogacy, child abuse, and child abduction
  • the termination of the relationship and ancillary matters including divorce, annulment, property settlements, alimony, and parental responsibility orders (in the United States, child custody and visitation, child support awards).
