What Women Need to Know Before Choosing a Lawyer

It can feel intimidating to talk to a lawyer. I’ve learned the hard way that if your lawyer can’t explain things to you as if you are a smart 14-year-old, you should find a lawyer who can. A lawyer is supposed to make your life easier, not more stressful.Your first step in finding a lawyer is to ask your family, friends or acquaintances.
