Because the other side will most certainly have one.
Navigating the legal landscape is no simple task, and attempting to handle your legal matter on your own can mean risking damage to your finances, property, family, and even your liberty.  Licensed attorneys have spent years studying various intricate legal concepts and have the experience in the field to anticipate actions and arguments from your opponent.  A lawyer’s ethical obligation is to pursue what he or she feels is in your best interest—and yours alone.  Having an attorney with The Gage Law Firm on your side provides you with insulation from those who do not have your wellbeing in mind.
A lawyer also provides you with an objective view of your legal dilemma.  Even attorneys faced with their own legal problems won’t represent themselves for this very reason.  Having a professional in the field who can step back from your situation and offer calm, informed, and solid advice can often be the difference between making a good legal decision and one that might cause you harm.
At The Gage Law Firm, we never stop researching and absorbing the law, as the legal landscape can change with a single court decision.  It is our mission to provide you with the most cutting-edge and informed legal advice possible and to be an advocate who not only can stand up to your opponent, but who also can provide you with the confidence that you are making the right legal decisions.
