Polish Speaking Services
In 2012, the city of Chicago's population consisted of 6.7% Polish Americans, or over 182,000 people. In the metropolitan area, over 1.5 million people claim Polish heritage, and on average, another 55,000 people emigrate from Poland to Chicago every year. Many people who identify with that heritage only speak Polish or feel more comfortable using it as their primary language. As a result, it can be more difficult or intimidating to communicate with lawyers when legal problems arise. However, the attorneys at Anderson & Associates, P.C. understand the issues regarding this language barrier and are here to provide Polish speaking legal services for their clients.
Importance of a Polish Speaking Attorney
There are many benefits to having an attorney who speaks Polish addressing your legal needs. First and foremost, it can make the idea of speaking with a lawyer much less daunting when you can speak in your native language. You will not have to struggle to explain your side of the issues or worry that details are getting lost in translation.
Similarly, you will also not have to worry about understanding what your attorney is telling you. Whether it is advice, legal options, or questions regarding your case, having a lawyer who can speak to you in Polish will help you to understand everything that is going on regarding your claims.
If the opposing party also speaks Polish as their native language, it will be easier for a Polish speaking attorney to understand what is going on, and it can be easier to resolve the issues between the parties. If the other party is not a native Polish speaker, having an attorney that speaks both languages can make the process move along much faster than it would if a translator is required. These reasons, and others, illustrate the importance of having a law firm that provides Polish speaking legal services for its clients.
