Every day I receive calls from individuals who reasonably have no knowledge of what kind of lawyer they need, or even the type of law that is applicable to their case. With the hopes of pointing you in the right direction, let me tell you about the most common situations I hear and which type of attorney may be best for you.
I receive calls from individuals asking about their rights concerning personal property or their rights within a particular deal they made with another party. If you recall signing your name to receive a piece of property or service, then you likely made a contract with another party. Within this contract is usually the terms and responsibilities of each party. In general, a Contracts Attorney can identify the enforceability of a contract, your rights, the other party’s rights, and most importantly, what to do if either party fails to meet their responsibilities. If this situation sounds like yours, then I suggest searching for a Contracts Attorney to have your rights represented.
Landlord Tenant Disputes
Many issues may arise between a Landlord and Tenant. From my experience, the most common issues relate to each party’s obligations of maintaining the safety and well-being of a particular rental property. Amongst many skills, Landlord Tenant attorneys know how to effectively read leases, are familiar with local ordinances, and understand applicable property laws. Landlord Tenant lawyers may be best to handle your dispute as either a Tenant or Landlord.
Consumer Protection Lawyer
Were you harmed due to a potentially faulty product? Consider a lawyer well-versed in Consumer Protection. The American Consumer can rest assured that they have attorneys dedicated to handling cases involving broken (or even cancerous) products that harmed the public. Lawyers in this subspecialty are familiar with navigating the laws dedicated to safeguarding the American people from companies, corporations, and other organizations that put their products out for public consumption.
Overall, the law has many subspecialties which makes finding you the right lawyer potentially difficult, but it does not have to be. If you are uncertain as to who you need, please do not hesitate to give us a call and let us point you in the right direction.
