FAQ

While you are not required to hire a lawyer for every legal matter, having professional legal representation can provide you with valuable guidance, protect your rights, and increase the likelihood of a favourable outcome. Legal issues can be complex and having a lawyer on your side can help navigate the process effectively.

Legal fees can vary depending on the complexity of the case, the experience of the lawyer, and the type of legal services needed. It’s important to discuss fees and payment structures with your lawyer upfront to understand the costs involved.

To make the most of your initial consultation, it’s helpful to bring any relevant documents related to your case, such as contracts, correspondence, court documents, and any other information that may be pertinent to your legal issue. Be prepared to discuss your goals and concerns with the lawyer.

The timeline for resolving a legal issue can vary depending on the complexity of the case, the court’s schedule, and other factors. Your lawyer can provide you with an estimate of the time required to reach a resolution and keep you informed of any developments along the way.

Lawyer-client privilege is a legal principle that protects the confidentiality of communications between a client and their lawyer. This privilege allows clients to freely discuss their legal matters with their lawyer without fear of disclosure to third parties.

If you cannot afford a private lawyer, there are options available such as legal aid organisations, pro bono services, or court-appointed lawyers for certain cases. Your lawyer can help you explore these options and find a suitable solution for your situation.
