It is not always clear when you need an attorney. Often one might think they need an attorney for practical reasons since they do not want to deal with the matter alone. It might also be that you do not have the time to deal with the issue. In any case, there are always good reasons to consider having one. However, keep in mind that your involvement with your case is critical to its proper success. If you just need legal forms prepared, it may be that you do not need an attorney, and could use the services of a paralegal.
Please be prepared for the meeting with the attorney to make the most of your time with the legal expert.
