3 Things a Lawyer Won't Tell Youby Attorney Carlos Gamino on 04/01/14
Hiring a lawyer is a big – and positive – step that can help you move forward with your life. Whether you’re getting divorced, fighting criminal charges or trying to get residency in the US, working with attorney Carlos A. Gamiño keeps you on track to get what you want. That’s because, unlike many lawyers, Carlos will tell you what you need to hear (not just what you want to hear).
3 Things Most Lawyers Won’t Tell You
There are more than three things that most lawyers won’t say, but among the most notable are:
· “You can do some of your legal work yourself.” Most lawyers won’t tell you that because they’re billing you for the time they spend on your case – but when it comes to finding old information, filling out forms and requesting copies of vital records, let your attorney know that you’ll handle it. You’ll save a little money by investing some of your time to further your case.
· “Don’t try to pull one over on me.” Many lawyers will look for a different way to question you if they’re not sure you’re telling the truth. Remember, though, that’s not very good for your case. The best thing you can do is be completely honest with your lawyer; the things you discuss are completely confidential. Your lawyer can’t talk about them with anyone unless you both agree that it’s important to your case or you’re an immediate threat to public safety.
· “The legal system isn’t there for you to get revenge.” Many people, particularly in divorce cases, try to use the legal system to make someone else’s life more difficult… and some attorneys let them. This is always a bad idea, though; in most cases, it backfires (and costs a boat load of money in the process).
When you’re dealing with the Milwaukee court system, you need to have an experienced lawyer in your corner; one who won’t just tell you what you want to hear. That’s the only way you’ll make any real progress in your case.
