What charges/crimes do you need a lawyer for?

It’s often hard to know when you might need a lawyer.  People use the terms “charges,” “lawsuits” “prosecutions” and “complaints” carelessly and, sometimes, interchangeably. Most typically students and their families don’t know if being called before a college hearing board a legal proceeding?

The best rule of thumb is to ask yourself  is something I value in jeopardy?

If your liberty is at stake (you may be arrested or jailed), or your education, or your job, or your money is at stake then you need to consider hiring a lawyer.  Let’s start with the easiest:  your liberty.
