As we are existing in the same Earth, we are all definitely affected by the same law that keeps things in order. If you try to sit and give a time to read all the law that existed in the world then it would take you a very long time to finish reading it. There are so many laws all in all that if would probably take a common person with an average reading skill over a lot of thousand years to read all that are present in the law book.
Ignorance may be bliss but it would be better if you have some knowledge when it comes to our law. So what will we do if ever the need or if some situation will happen?
Will we be able to handle it all by ourselves or do we need to seek the professionals that obviously knows the law more than you and can help you be defended in times of need. Sometimes, people will feel scared when it comes to calling their own lawyer, some just do not know how to call one or choose one that is right for the case that they have. You will have to be very careful in choosing the one that will represent you in the court.
You can either know the law like the palm of your hands and is already a professional which is unless you give your all of your time in educating yourself in all the laws that are present and you will also have to be aware of all the legal procedures that is related to your case. So you better just take a risk and also the cost and get yourself a lawyer to defend you.
So in times of panic or problem, when do we call a lawyer? The one that will be honest in communicating with you. A responsible lawyer will be the best lawyer for you.
