There’s a famous meme that’s been going around the internet for a while now, “Look at My Lawyer, Dawg, I’m Going to Jail”. The meme is funny because it’s true. Most people don’t think about getting their lawyer until they’re in trouble and it’s often too late. If you’re a man, there are many reasons why you should have your lawyer. In this article, we will discuss 10 of those reasons.

The meme that started it all…

On February 28th, 2020, Twitter user @gbg_buckss posted a picture of a man in a black suit sitting on a bench with his eyes closed and his right hand inside his pants, stating “Look at my lawyer Dawgggg I’m going to jail😫🤯🤣.” In six months, the post gained over 106,300 likes and 19,600 retweets.

The picture quickly turned into a meme with the text “Look at my lawyer dawg” becoming associated with people being in jail or about to go to jail. The meme speaks to a very real truth – most people don’t think about getting their lawyer until they’re in trouble and it’s often too late.

If you’re a man, there are many reasons why you should have your lawyer. Let’s dig in…

Why every man needs a lawyer

A man’s legal rights are often different than those of a woman: In some cases, men have fewer rights than women. For example, when it comes to divorce, custody, and support payments, the law often favors women. This is why it’s so important for men to have a lawyer – someone who knows the law and can fight for their rights.

A man can be wrongfully accused of a crime he did not commit

In the United States, men are more likely to be wrongfully convicted of a crime than women. Wrongful convictions occur for a variety of reasons, including eyewitness misidentification, false confessions, informants (snitches) who lie, and bad police work.

If you’re a man facing charges or even just being questioned by the police, it’s important to have a lawyer present. Even if you’re innocent, the police may try to trick you into confessing to a crime you didn’t commit.

A man can be a victim of domestic violence

Although it’s often thought of as a women’s issue, men can be victims of domestic violence, too. About one in seven men will experience severe physical violence by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime.

If you’re a man who is a victim of domestic violence, it’s important to have a lawyer who can help you get a restraining order and protect your rights.

A man can be told that the baby is his

In some states, if a woman has a baby, the man she was with at the time is automatically assumed to be the father. This can lead to problems if the man is not the father, or if he does not want to be a father.

If you’re a man who has been told that you are the father of a child, it’s important to have a lawyer who can help you establish paternity and protect your rights.

A man can be sued

Anyone can be sued, but men are often targets because they tend to have more money and assets than women. If you’re a man, you may be sued for any number of reasons, including breach of contract, personal injury, or even just because someone doesn’t like you.

It’s important to have a lawyer who can help you protect your assets and fight false claims.

A man’s business can be sued

If you’re a man with a business, it’s important to have a lawyer who can help you protect your assets and fight false claims.

A man can be drafted

Although the draft has not been in effect since 1973, men are still required to register for the draft when they turn 18. If a draft is ever reinstated, men could be called to serve in the military.

If you’re a man who is drafted, it’s important to have a lawyer who can help you get out of it.

A man can be the victim of domestic violence

Although it’s often thought of as a women’s issue, men can be victims of domestic violence, too. About one in seven men will experience severe physical violence by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime.

If you’re a man who is a victim of domestic violence, it’s important to have a lawyer who can help you get a restraining order and protect your rights.

A man can be bullied by his coworkers or boss

Although it’s often thought of as a school issue, bullying doesn’t stop when you graduate. Adults can be bullied by their coworkers or boss. If you’re a man who is being bullied at work, it’s important to have a lawyer who can help you protect your rights and get the justice you deserve.

Make sure you have a lawyer

These are just some of the reasons why every man needs a lawyer. If you don’t have one, now is the time to get one. Your future may depend on it.
