How do I know if I have a valid legal case?
This is a broad question as there are a number of legal scenarios and possible legal resolutions. The best thing to do is to contact me for a free phone consultation. During that consultation, I can provide my initial impressions as to the merits of your case. Ultimately, however, an office consultation is usually the best course for thoroughly reviewing your situation to know whether or not there is a valid legal case.
Is there any harm in trying to serve as my own attorney?
While knowledge is power, and there is an abundance of legal sites which encourage "self-lawyering," trying to analyze your own legal issues and serve as your own attorney is a very bad idea. That approach is like doing surgery on yourself instead of calling a surgeon. There are too many nuances and pitfalls that you will encounter without the services of an attorney.
What kind of cases do you handle?
This information has been set out on the Services page. In the event that you would like further information as to a particular type of legal case or problem, you are encouraged to call me to discuss the matter.
How accessible are you to your clients?
Very accessible. My clients understand that I encourage good communication and that I make a point of returning calls, answering inquiries, and keeping them updated on case status in a very timely fashion.
How do you charge for your services?
Most cases involving a potential monetary recovery are accepted on a contingency-fee basis. Fees in other types of cases are determined after consultation with and approval by the client.
