Legal-Ease: Hire the right professional from the start

When someone is hired to do a job that they’re not qualified to perform, the result can be disappointing. There can be recovery, though, in many instances in which shoddy goods or services were provided.

Hiring the right professional from the start will ultimately save both time and money rather than getting stuck with cleaning up the mess from a poorly done job.

My uncle Chris is an excellent carpenter, and he is one of the smartest people I know. However, I would not hire my uncle Chris to prepare my taxes. Similarly, I love my accountant, Biff, but I would not hire Biff to create a new interior design for my office.

People often get a raw deal for goods or services that they purchased. Often, the inadequate outcome can be anticipated by recognizing at the start that the person or business providing the goods or services is not good at what may be requested of them or is not even legally allowed to do what they are offering.
