It’s good idea to hire an attorney if:

  • It’s a difficult legal dispute
  • The dispute will be solved in court
  • Significant time, money, and property are at stake

If your situation doesn’t fit the above description but you’re still not sure, consider some other options. See if there is a book or guide you can use to help resolve the issue, or seek out reputable legal advice from another source. A non-lawyer organization may be able to help you through the process.
