Our firm can help you to better understand your legal options and help you to attain a fresh financial start.
What is a contingency fee in a personal injury case?
A contingency fee basically means if you don’t win, we don’t get paid. Specifically, the amount of contingency fee required is based upon the outcome of your case. Ask us more about our contingency fees during your free consultation.
Why should I hire an attorney?
An attorney will help you proactively pinpoint and address many issues you may not know exist, and can wear many necessary hats throughout the legal process. We not only will educate you on the legal process and professionally advise you on your options, but also counsel you and vigorously represent you before, during, or after your trial, if necessary. Our attorneys are also highly seasoned advocates whose collective goal is to help you to achieve the most favorable results possible in your matter.
How do I know if I need an attorney?
Our firm offers a free initial consultation to discuss this very question. Every situation is different and every person’s matter deserves attention and dedication. Many individuals attempt to approach legal matters themselves and end up delaying or complicating the process, resulting in unfavorable outcomes. Although some matters can be handled pro se (by yourself), we always recommend at least discussing the issue with us first to better assess if you need an attorney or not.
