Why it pays to have a lawyer on your side

It’s likely that everyone, at some point during their life, will need a lawyer.

The best time to hire a lawyer is before you take any action that might have legal implications, such as: before you sign a contract, create a will, seek child custody, or are charged with a crime.

If you’re faced with any of these legal issues, among others, it’s important to have someone on your side who can navigate the legal process and ensure your interests are protected.

Your lawyer should be a trusted advisor, to help you understand your legal rights and obligations, and a formidable negotiator, to get you the best possible results.

Leonard Kompa, a practicing B.C. lawyer since 1988, assumes both these roles. As principal of LPK Law Corporationhe recently established his firm in New Westminster, and brings over 30 years of legal and courtroom experience to meet his client’s needs.
