I sought advice from a legal clinic, do I still need a lawyer?

Yes, you are advised to seek legal representation even if you had sought legal advice from a legal clinic. Legal clinics are only able to provide preliminary advice on your matter as their time with you is limited. Further, the lawyer at the legal clinic who advises you on your matter cannot represent you in your legal proceedings.

If you do decide to engage a lawyer, your lawyer will be able to offer more in-depth and specific advice pertaining to your case. Your lawyer will also represent you in court and will advise you on each step of the legal process throughout the case.

If you require more information that are not listed in our articles, or legal advice on a specific matter, please contact us for a free first consultation.
