Why would one need an attorney? Perhaps you are buying or selling a house. Or, you are getting married and want a will. You may be starting a new business or have had difficulty with a contractor and need assistance in pursing your grievance. You may be a landlord and need to evict a tenant, or you may be a tenant and your landlord is violating your lease. You may have gotten a speeding ticket or been charged with a DWI or some other crime. In these, and many other circumstances, you may need the assistance and counsel of an attorney. So, who are attorneys, how does one become an attorney, what is his/her role, and how would you choose and work with one?
