You do not always have to hire an attorney to solve your problems. In fact, the law does not even permit you to have an attorney in certain circumstances, like when you want to sue someone for less than $7,500 in Small Claims Court.

TLF's Lawsuit Library is intended to be a resource for people who want more information about legal issues. Knowledge is power. The internet is crammed with so much information sometimes it can be difficult or even impossible to figure out where to look or even what quesitons to ask. Our Library is designed to help you get the information about and answers to commonly asked questions. Check out these links and always feel free to call us if you think we can help. We look forward to answering your questions.
