Can’t I Just Go on LegalZoom?

The internet is a fantastic invention. In fact, it is arguably the single most impactful invention in history. After all, it brings unprecedented amounts of information to the masses in an instant. It allows for the sharing of cultures and ideas between people from every corner of the planet. There is very little that the internet cannot do.

Unfortunately, the Golden Age of Information has also led to a bit of overconfidence amongst internet users. It is possible to go online and find instructions teaching you how to do just about anything.

Want to learn how to make an incredible soufflé? It’s just a click away.

Want to learn how to build a treehouse? There are blueprints and videos galore.

Thinking about buying a new car? You can shop through inventories all over the world in order to find the best deal.

However, there are some things that should still be left to trained professionals, and practicing law is one of them. Websites like LegalZoom profess to provide users with everything they need to handle their own legal needs at a fraction of the cost of hiring an attorney. They provide instructions and documents and a wealth of information on the cheap.

So, why shouldn’t you just use LegalZoom, you might ask?

Because you deserve more than a cookie-cutter approach to your legal needs.

The road to court is paved with stories that begin with “I didn’t think this was going to happen.” The fact is, websites like this by their very nature cannot effectively provide you with a customized approach. They will provide you with templates for documents. They will provide you with advice based on generic hypothetical situations. But chances are, your situation is anything but generic, and even if it seems like it is, you never know when you are going to be faced with an unexpected legal curveball.

Attorneys spend years receiving an in-depth legal education, and years more training and learning from other attorneys. They can objectively look at your unique circumstances and provide you with information and guidance that is customized to suit your specific needs. If you simply download a contract on the internet, chances are good that something is going to fall through the cracks.

Real life attorneys like those at the law office of Carla D. Aikens provide you with a personalized and comprehensive approach that cannot be matched by cookie-cutter templates. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for, and for the price of internet-based legal services, you will almost never get enough return to properly protect your interests and fulfill your legal goals.

To learn more about our services or to set up a consultation in which we can sit down, get to know you, and discuss your unique goals and needs, please contact our law firm today!
