    “Take your medicine!” When a doctor prescribes medication, the patient  takes it.  Why?   The patient relies on the doctor’s expertise in medical issues.

    Why is it different for attorneys?  Unlike when dealing with a doctor, attorneys deal with everyday issues and situations.  People think they understand the issues in a contract because they think they understand the words used. Consequently, they either don’t ask an attorney for advice early in the process or, if the advice is given, they don’t always take it.
