The Term "Lawyer Up"


"Lawyer up" is a term associated with hiring the services of a lawyer or attorney at the first sight of trouble.  While, this is a good strategy for people who have more money, it's not always the best case scenario.

There are a number of legal matters that you can handle yourself, such as incorporating or an asset and children free divorce.  However, bankruptcy, messy divorces, criminal cases, etc. are important, life-changing events that require the services of a good attorney to not only give you the best advice but also provide the best shot at a reduced impact on life.  Attorney services cost a lot of money, but you do get what you pay for.

If you want to avoid attorney fees, the best thing to do is stay out of trouble (Captain Obvious to the rescue!)

  15. But but but I like getting in trouble. It's not that you have to stay out of trouble, you just need to not get caught!

  16. Haha yeah. I never want to have to pay a lawyer. Though I don't know the law as well as them, the fact that they are able to make so much money is sickening. They aren't saving anyone's life or anything (especially because they don't determine the outcome of the trial!)
