Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
An attorney’s job is to provide professional representation to maximize the client’s recovery and to help the client navigate the complicated legal system. Sometimes there may be cases in which having an attorney is either not necessary or not in the client’s best interest. Sometimes simple claims can be settled without the help of an attorney, saving the client the cost of attorney’s fees.
If after consultation we feel your claim is one you should handle on your own, even if it means no attorney’s fees for us, we will let you know. We do not charge for an initial consultation. You can contact us with your case and we will discuss whether you need an attorney, rather than trying to convince you that you must have one.
