Our site features comprehensive guides for common legal matters, including Personal Injury, Divorce, Bankruptcy, Criminal Defense and more.

In-Depth Articles & State Guides Written By Attorneys

What Is My Legal Issue?

Attorneys generally focus on specific areas of the law and any directly related practice areas. For example, tax lawyers may also handle bankruptcy cases and family law attorneys may also handle divorce or adoption cases. But a civil rights attorney will generally not handle business transactions. Start with a general category, such as business, tax or personal injury and narrow down from there to find attorney with specific experience that matches your legal need.

Can An Attorney Help Me?

If you or a loved one has been seriously harmed by the actions of a person or company, you probably need an attorney to protect your rights and see that you are compensated fairly. If you’ve been charged with a felony, you definitely need a lawyer to represent you. If you are selling your business, you likely need an attorney. But if you are buying or selling a car at the local dealership, for example, you probably don’t need a lawyer to manage the transaction.
