Legal assistance can be obtained from government agencies, non-profit organizations and structures, professional law firms, private lawyers and attorneys. These entities may differ in specialization, level of professional training, cost of services provided.
Professional legal assistance can be obtained in several ways, and it is absolutely not necessary to plan serious expenses for paying for the corresponding services. At present, almost any citizen can receive such assistance free of charge, which is regulated by the Federal Law "On Free Legal Aid in the Russian Federation". Within the framework of this document, numerous legal clinics and other structures operate, which mainly function at higher educational institutions of the corresponding profile. The disadvantage of receiving free services is often their limited nature, lack of proper qualifications from specialists, and a lengthy process of rendering.
Obtaining legal assistance from government agencies
Many interested parties do not pay attention to the possibility of obtaining legal assistance from specialized government agencies. These services are also free of charge, since they are provided by the relevant officials as part of their duties. At the same time, due to the clear specialization in a certain type of activity, such assistance is highly professional. So, if a problem arises for work, you can contact the territorial division of the labor inspectorate, where they often help with the preparation of documents for going to court. If a question arises in the field of consumer protection, then the best option would be to contact the department of Rospotrebnadzor, which also provides free assistance on such issues. The disadvantage of obtaining professional legal services in government bodies is their clear specialization, focusing only on certain relationships.
Getting professional paid legal aid
Asking for paid legal aid is the most common behavior of citizens when any legal issues arise. In this case, you can apply for the services of private lawyers, lawyers, conclude an agreement with a large law firm. An important point in such cooperation is the need to pay attention to the powers of a particular lawyer. Thus, even the most famous and reputable law firm will not be able to defend the interests of the accused or defendant in a criminal case if the corresponding employee does not have the status of a lawyer.
