Cheap lawyer? Is there really such a thing as a cheap lawyer? Not so sure about that…seriously, I mean if you think about it for a minute even a cheap lawyer is going to cost you. Either way, I think it would be more appropriate to look at it as reasonable lawyer. After all, you get what you pay for, or so at least that is what they say. Most lawyers will bargain with you and help you with a financial plan to fit your budget. It would seem to me if you are looking for a lawyer, you would want to find a person who is familiar with the type of law you are searching for. So many people get caught up in the price of paying for a lawyer and forget about why they really need one. It is okay to lawyer shop but keep in mind when doing so to take a look at what the lawyer specializes in. If you do this then you will have a better chance of getting what you truly want which is representation.
I have a friend who recently used a criminal defense lawyer in a family law matter and she lost miserably and had to pay big bucks. The criminal defense lawyer is a great lawyer in his field but knew little about family law and basically failed his client. Although family law is basic and easy piece of law to practice you still have to know the tricks of the trade to get what it is you want. To navigate law a lawyer is unfamiliar with can be damaging. So then, when you look for a lawyer in a special field please be sure he/she handles the type of law you are looking for specifically, going cheap is not always better.
