We understand the desire of many to handle their own legal matters with only the help of online forms or information from websites. Professional legal help can be expensive, but before you decide to take on your own case, please know we are happy to work with our clients on payment plans and fee structures. Also, please listen to what St. George, Fifth District Court Judge G. Rand Beacham had to say from the bench on this subject just before his retirement.
As Judge Beacham explains, seemingly simple legal matters can have unexpected and often grave consequences if not handled properly; and the online forms are no substitute for an experienced attorney. Also, as the subject of this hearing discovered, his case ended up costing him a lot more due to a mistake in processing the online forms than it ever would have cost him to hire an attorney in the beginning.
