The Legal Language of Lawyers

"Did you know that somebody, a neighbor for example, could become the owner of your property, or a part of your property simply by making use of it for a period of time? Did you know that a neighbor or a trespasser could gain an easement over your property by simply using your property to get to someplace else? What is adverse possession? What is a prescriptive easement? What if someone would allow water run-off from their septic tank to flow freely onto your property? What would the legal remedy for that occurrence be?

It is very unusual for a client to come into the law office knowing all about wills, probate, powers of attorney, easements, etc. It just does not happen. Every person is skilled at something, and most have a passing knowledge of other skills. For example, medical doctors are skilled in their field, but usually know very little about legal problems, or legal solutions. A lawyer should never try to treat one's self for a serious medical issue. That's what doctors are for.

Lawyers, especially experienced lawyers, live with the law. Each and everyday of the week a lawyer eats, sleeps, and talks the law. Sometimes, the discussions are about what happened in court. Sometimes, the discussions might be about specific legal questions that have been raised by a client. We lawyers know and talk the legal language. The language becomes a part of our very being. The average citizen has skills, and knowledge that apply to his or her work, but are unfamiliar with the language of the law. When a legal issue arises, the average citizen will almost always find the solution to be hampered by a maze of rules and regulations. Also, the average person trying to find a lawyer, be it in the phone book, or on the Internet, may have difficulty going through page after page of attorneys offering their services. We live in a plethora of Attorney advertise-ments.
