In the past few years I have seriously needed one, and could not afford one, and thus was helpless to fight against the wrong doing.
The fees may have been high but in-line for the services needed, but the real problem was no Attorney I contacted would make a decient arrangement with me, so I could pay them, and thus have the services.
And No, I will pay my own way, dont whant somewone else to pay the attorney for me. That never works out well.
Yes I would have, I don’t feel they earn the kind of money they make...I have used them for divorce contracts to sue a bad contractor and to get custody of my kids and to tell you the truth most of the time it was a waste of my money
When I need an attorney, I use an attorney. When I was a student I used a free law clinic very effectively to contest the actions of a huge insurance company (and won); now I am a professional I hire the best one I can afford. Attorneys are professionals, so someone has to pay them. If you don't have the money you can use subsidized or fee services to get the basic support you might need to learn how to represent yourself.
