Why did you hire your lawyer?

These days it is not uncommon to find that normal people are experiencing legal problems. Look at the side of any bus or up on any billboard and there’s a good chance you will see an advertisement for a lawyer in your neighborhood. But if you’re someone who can’t imagine needing to hire a lawyer, this story from “Mary” will give you something to consider.

Q: So tell us what was going on in your life when you considered hiring a lawyer?
A: I suspected that my husband was cheating on me because he started making excuses about coming home late every Friday after work. I decided a private investigator in Boston would be able to confirm my suspicions, and that’s exactly what happened.

Q: So you hired a private detective before you hired a lawyer. That was a smart move. How did you choose one?
A: I looked on Google and called a few firms before deciding I would meet one private detective in person.
