Having the experience of being involved in a lawsuit isn’t the same as being a knowledgeable lawyer. Although, many people seem to think otherwise. Often, people freely give legal advice over the internet the moment they spot familiarities in someone else’s case. It’s understandable; some people like to help and others enjoy sharing knowledge.
However, just because a case worked out for one person doesn’t mean they’re qualified to advise others facing the same situation. Taking legal advice from a non-lawyer over the internet can prove destructive to your case. It can also get the advice-giver in trouble.
