The legal system can be imposing to those who are not attorneys and can result in a great deal of stress. People may avoid using the legal system as a result. However, there are times when going to court is the best or only way to resolve a matter. In these situations, an attorney is necessary. . Attorney's provide professional advice, speak on your behalf and make sure deadlines, which are vital in the legal system, are met.
Zealous Advocates for Peace, "ZAP" is a for-profit law firm that provides legal advice and representation in court. We have experience representing people in the areas of Social Security Disability claims, Family Law Cases, Landlord and Tenant Issues and Estate Planning. We also provide mediation services.
In addition, our attorney is licensed to practice law in White Earth, Leech Lake and Mille Lacs Tribal Courts. Each of these tribes have their own tribal codes that are unique and require their own license to practice in their courts.
We do our best when helping clients through the legal process to make the experience as least stressful as possible. For instance, we take the time to explain the legal process to our clients in layperson's terms, provide various options on how to proceed, including ones that clients may find less stressful than others and will consider accepting payment plans to help clients who otherwise could not afford legal representation.
Finally, although attorneys will provide options, the final decision on how to proceed is the client's call. You're the boss.
