Living and working in a foreign country is difficult enough. However, when legal issues, contracts, or other issues transpire, the cultural and legal intricacies, including listening carefully and fully understanding the problem, are often a barrier to success. This ability usually varies between countries, of course, between law offices. The Brain Heart Law Offices attorneys have years of experience communicating persuasively with all parties concerned to resolve the concerns for all parties involved.
When legal difficulties arise, not seeking legal counsel might not fully assist individuals who do not understand Japanese law or have never dealt with the Japanese justice system before. But expertise and a superior understanding of likely results can be advantageous if used judicially. For example, an Immigration Lawyer is the only one who has passed the bar. In contrast, a Judicial Scrivener who completes forms and goes to Immigration Offices is not a lawyer but calls themselves an Immigration lawyer. This is a pitfall of translation and know-how. If legal problems occur, a Judicial Scrivener cannot draw upon experience as a lawyer to solve your problems and cannot appear in court or file papers, motions or demand letters on your behalf.
