We are often brought in to fix a problem that has gotten out of control. Often, the problem could have been prevented with very little work from an attorney. When asked about why the client waited so long to retain an attorney, the answer is almost always “I was worried about how much it would cost.”
That fear causes problems to get out of control and makes everything more complicated and expensive in the long run. Without exaggeration, it can mean the difference between five hours of work and five hundred.
