Representation by a business lawyer familiar with small claims court cases increases your chance of winning the case. Also, if you win, a collection lawyer can play a critical role in helping you with the often challenging task of collecting the amount of money owed.
Additionally, should the other party prepare a counterclaim, you will take comfort knowing you have competent representation on your side to defend against that claim.
LegalShield’s Small Business Legal Essentials plan allows you to hire your lawyer to represent you for 25% off their standard hourly fees. If you’re a defendant, our Small Business Legal Plus and Small Business Legal Pro plans include an optional trial defense services add-on for only $14.95/month. Either way, you save on lawyer representation in small claims court.
