Common Questions When You Are Seeking an Attorney

When you are in need of an attorney there are many questions to be answered. Here we answer some of the most common questions.

How Do I Pay?

If your case involves an injury, our fee is usually a percentage of whatever amount of money you recover.

How Should I Choose My Attorney?

You should choose an attorney who has real, significant experience and expertise who will devote the necessary time and attention to your case, and not just pass it on to a younger associate.

Should I Pursue My Case?

To answer this you will need the advice of an experienced attorney who will be able to assess the chances of success with the amount of time required.

Is My Case Outcome Guaranteed?

No guarantees, but your attorney should be able to give you probable outcomes, especially as the case progresses.
