Importance of Legal Assistance in Japan

 The Brain-Heart Law Offices attorneys have years of experience providing legal assistance in Japan. Living and working in a foreign country is difficult enough. However, when legal issues, contracts, or other issues transpire, cultural and legal intricacies, including listening carefully and fully understanding the problem, are often barriers to success. Communicating persuasively with English-speaking assistance helps resolves the concerns of all parties involved.

Importance of choosing an expert Japanese attorney

When legal difficulties arise, not seeking legal counsel in English, not understanding Japanese law, or not having experience with the Japanese justice system almost always leads to even more significant problems. But legal assistance, expertise, and a superior understanding of likely results can be advantageous if used judicially. 

For example, an Immigration Attorney  is the only legal representative who has passed the Japanese bar. In contrast, a Judicial Scrivener who completes forms and goes to Immigration Offices is not an attorney but just calls themselves an attorney. This is a pitfall of translation and know-how. In addition, if legal problems occur, a Judicial Scrivener cannot draw upon experience as an attorney to solve your problems and cannot appear in court or file papers, motions, or demand letters on your behalf.
