For most business people, deciding whether to call an attorney should be like deciding whether to go to the doctor. If you have severe chest pain, odds are you're not going to hesitate to call your physician or hightail it to the emergency room. But if you just have a bad cold, you might wait a few days to see if it turns into pneumonia before you drag yourself to the dreaded doctor's office.
Likewise, should you call a lawyer when you have a legal problem or just need guidance. Whether the field is real estate, business contract or dealing with corporate governance, the question is do you need a lawyer ? Well would you do surgery on yourself, even if you were a doctor? In most case the answe would be no.
