Types of legal services for individuals
Ordinary citizens can turn to lawyers for the following services:
- Consultation (written and oral)
As a rule, companies allocate this service in a separate item. During the consultation, a specialist gets acquainted with the client’s problem, gives it a legal assessment and outlines the ways of solving it. In addition, the consultations help to determine whether the client, in principle, requires the assistance of professionals.
- Drawing up legal documents
The list of these documents includes contracts, applications, agreements, claims, information letters, etc. By using the services of a lawyer, you can be sure that the documents will be prepared in accordance with all rules.

Lawyers check the documents drawn up by the other party for authenticity and compliance with legal norms, make sure that the transaction is legal and the client’s rights are observed. This service is most in demand in real estate and land transactions (construction and purchase of objects, business inquiries).
- Representing interests in court
The court is one of the most energy consuming stages of the conflict. A person needs not only to study the law and collect the entire package of necessary documents, but also to prepare emotionally for the court. In addition, the consideration of cases in court is usually delayed for a long time.
