Just wondering, why do you need a lawyer and what kind of lawyer do you need? There's many times of them.
You don't have to get a lawyer but ...
if your car bumps the back of another car at two m.p.h. and you're driving a "clunker", the driver of the other car will give you a dirty look, and perhaps a one-finger wave, but they won't bother to report it. -- Same "mishap", but you're driving a "millionaire's" car -- they will grab the back of their neck, fall out the drivers' side door and begin screaming and writhing on the ground, calling for a medic. A lawyer, beforehand, can make you less of a lawsuit target via paperwork.
Lawyers who specialize in taxes can do the same job as a tax accountant, but if you have a "dispute" with Uncle Scam, your lawyer (traditionally) can't be compelled to testify against you, in court. A tax accountant can be compelled, will be compelled, and will spill more of his guts than a victim of food poisoning.
In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.
