Chattanooga Legal Tips
While we handle cases involving Divorce and Family Law, Personal Injury, and General Litigation in Chattanooga areas, here are some generally helpful tips that anyone can use.
- Execute a will
- Estate planning is not only for the elderly. Every adult should have an estate plan specifying what should happen to your property when you pass away. While most people prefer not to think too far ahead, death is a reality that is, for most of us, unplanned. It is much better to draw up your own will and testament than to rely on what the law has in store for everyone who did not take the time to do so. If you have a spouse and/or children, it is especially important for you to have a will to ensure they are properly taken care of once you have moved on.
- Act without delay
- If you find yourself in a situation wherein you need legal advice, make contacting a skilled, experienced Chattanooga attorney your priority. The sooner you seek legal advice, the easier it will be for your Chattanooga attorney to build a strong case in your favor, whatever the charges or circumstances of your situation. Delay in obtaining legal counsel might lead to some important information being lost or forgotten or for the other party involved in your dispute to build a stronger case – against you. Often times, you also have to allow some time for your Chattanooga attorney to review the case, file paper work and get the proceedings started.
- Be open and honest
- Your Chattanooga attorney can only help you insofar as you help him or her understand your case. Keeping details or information from your Chattanooga lawyer not only makes his or her job that much difficult, it is in every case a detriment to your claim. Your Chattanooga lawyer is there to represent you and you therefore need to have enough trust in him or her to divulge everything pertaining to your situation. Your Chattanooga attorney will in most cases ask questions that may seem very personal in nature, or might upset you. Remember that their only concern is to ensure you come out of the situation with the best results possible, and as such you should answer honestly and not feel defensive when being questioned.
