There are many reasons people are afraid to seek legal advice, but the major is financing. How do you hire a lawyer when you cannot afford one? Law firms need to consider this fact. How can they come up with strategies to make people afford the services?
The hourly charges of a lawyer are relatively high in most countries. For this reason, very, few people will have the representation of a lawyer in a court case. But this may tend to affect the results of their judgements. Getting your lawyer for defenses in a law court gives you a fair hearing. However, due to the charges that come with having a lawyer, most people, primarily involved in civil cases, defend themselves in court. A good example is the Houston home court, where out of 90 per cent of the people representing 18000 individuals defended themselves in court. This is because they could not incur the charges of a lawyer due to affordability.

month may take a few days. Law firms need to embrace technology. Legal services should be made accessible, cheaper and faster.
