Definition - What does Legal Representation mean?
Legal representation is when a licensed attorney performs legal work on behalf of a client.
Many people choose to have a lawyer represent them on legal matters because the law can be very complex. Also, practicing law is difficult and the stakes can be very high, especially if a person has been accused of a crime.
Justipedia explains Legal Representation
If a person who is accused of a crime cannot afford an attorney for legal representation, then one is provided to them.
Lawyers are considered to be experts in the field of practicing law; this is why both parties in a lawsuit often use attorneys to represent them.
Lawyers can argue cases in trials on behalf of their clients as well as take care of paperwork or other legal work that needs to be carried out.
