But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries – Exodus 23:22


“Sounds like you’ve gone through a major headache,” the lawyer acknowledged.  “More like a nightmare,” the woman declared, “not only for me but my family as well. That’s why when I saw the commercial about your firm taking on cases such as mine, I called right away!”  “Good thing you did, because timing is crucial.  Well to get started, it will require an upfront charge of fifteen hundred dollars, then…”  “Wait!” the woman interrupted, “I heard it said that there’s no charge unless your firm wins!”  “And that’s true for cases in which there is a high probability of winning.  But for all others where there’s an even higher probability of losing, such as yours, there’s an upfront cost.”

From injuries sustained in a car accident to suspected incompetency of a physician, there’s a law firm willing to handle whatever injustice perceived to have been inflicted upon you.  However, the problem that frequently arises is the conflict between you and your lawyer’s motivation, since it is oftentimes regulated by its monetary value, in other words, the risk versus reward.  Hence, the greater chance of reaping a large settlement or recognition, such as highly publicized case, the more involved will the lawyers be.

Thankfully, we have a God who desires to take on our case no matter what it is.  Yet, we’ll never have to be concerned about upfront costs or a successful track record.  The only requirement is our assurance that He will indeed secure a win on our behalf.
