Meaning of § - §§§§

To give you a hint how “dangerous” or difficult a legal matter might be, I have added a rating t. To show the difficulty / dangerousness of a legal matter, we are using 1 to 4 “§” at the end of an answer. The following table will show what is meant with the “§s”. This rating is purely the author's own opinion based on my professional experiences. Other persons will surely have differing opinions. 

§

very 
easy

You really should be able to manage this legal problem on your own. You need to hire an attorney only if this will cost you too much time and/or money. 
OR:
The legal scenario is very clear and easy to understand.

§§

fairly 
easy

You have good chances to manage this legal problem by yourself. Yet, if you have tried without success, hire an attorney. 
OR:
The legal scenario is fairly clear and fairly easy to understand.

§§§

complicated

It would best be to get legal advice, however you might try to first “threaten” with an attorney. 
OR:
The legal scenario is not really clear or somewhat tricky.

§§§§

very complicated

It is not recommended to solve this issue without professional legal advice. You real should hire an attorney. This remains true even if the legality is very clear.
OR:
The legal scenario is very tricky or complicated.
