What does a small business owner, independent contractor, self-employed, employee or retiree have in common? They all have a need for legal advice concerning things that occur in their everyday lives. Legal needs start with having an updated will to protect your love ones as well as having a living will to establish your wishes. Statistics state that only 2% of Americans have a current will.
A small business owner’s needs might include the need for contract review but everyone has a contract or two that they are involved in at any given time. Contracts include leases, mortgages, loan agreements, service agreements, life insurance policies and lots more. Most of these contracts we take for granted until something happens that adversely affects us or the outcomes and then it can become a serious problem and develop into a major legal issue.
An employee might have legal issues that relate to unfair treatment, benefit denials or compensation discrepancies. These legal issues can also be human resource issues for a business owner, independent contractor or someone who is self-employed at some level.
Most legal issues will have ramifications that affect more than one person. The outcome of negative or unresolved situations can be felt by family members, other employees, business owners, shareholders and investors as well.
Lawsuits are filed every day. Some justified and some unjustified but they both require legal actions be followed and the process taken seriously to avoid unnecessary anguish or financial loss. Simple things such as a traffic violation can escalate dramatically if proper protocol is not followed through in the judicial system.
Your legal rights should not be taken for granted and knowing your rights is the foundation to your rights being upheld and not abused. A great way to take some of the pressure off of your life is to have a legal safeguard with an on call attorney during regular business hours and also available during off hours when emergency or unexpected situation arises that demands immediate response.
