Obtaining Legal Advice

You may wish to obtain legal advice on your specific matter. Indeed, we recommend you do so if you have a legal concern. Between well-meaning friends, random internet searches, and so-called one-size-fits-all “legal” solutions; nowadays there is a wide range of questionable “advice” to be had. You wouldn’t ask your plumber to put a roof on your house and trust the roof not to leak. Nor would you buy a roof off the shelf and assume it will t your house without leaking. Likewise, your legal advice should come from a knowledgeable lawyer, reflecting on your specific situation.  If you are interested in retaining Jacques Law, please call or email us and we would be happy to discuss how we can help.
