Advertisement - Lawyers have a bad image. Especially in movies and series they are characterized as greedy and greasy types who profit from other people's misfortune. Only rich people can afford a good lawyer and thus buy justice with their money.

But I think this view is absolutely wrong. Lawyers help to keep the overview in an almost inscrutable tangle of laws and regulations. They are, if at all, a consequence of the complicated system, but by no means to blame for it. We as citizens regularly elect our representatives, who eventually pass laws that are becoming increasingly impenetrable. This is an apparent attempt to achieve justice, but the opposite is often the case: if you want justice, you need a lawyer. But as just mentioned: it is not the lawyer's fault that divorce law, family law, inheritance law, company law and the many other fields of law have become so complicated. On the contrary: the lawyer helps to ensure that the individual has the greatest possible chance of justice despite the complexity.

But how do you find the right lawyer?

Reading time: 3 minutes

With the beginning of the Internet era in the 1990s, many changes were seen coming. Employees would work mainly from home. Fast data lines would make it possible to do the work from anywhere.
