In some rural regions is not missing now, not only the supermarket, the Baker, the doctor, and with fast Internet - there are less and less lawyers.

However, we must allow the cause and the presence of lawyers in the area by a customization.

General attorney, as you call him, would be the ideal way, the first point of contact when a legal Problem. A lot of people think, but for the first time to the invoice, you enter the lawyer's visit.

Yes, it is from a threshold of $ 1950. But you can ask the lawyer in advance what the cost is. An example: The landlord asks the tenant to 1300 euros in damages due to scratched doors.

So the window dressing?

no, but it has to be seen differentiated: The "uncertain prospect of success", which is when you go to the lawyer, consists in the vast majority of flight delay cases. Because there fast clear is whether there is a refund or not.
