Frequently Asked Questions

Legal matters can be extremely complicated, regardless of their area of law. Here are some answers to some of the questions we frequently hear from our clients.

  • How much will my legal fees be? Cost is a significant concern for many people who are seeking legal services. It is impossible to estimate how much your case will cost you without conducting a thorough analysis of your situation, but we are committed to fair, transparent, and understandable billing practices
  • Will my case go to court? Whether or not your case will go to court depends on a number of factors. This being said, it is important to be aware of the fact that most cases are settled out of court. As seasoned litigators, however, we are not afraid to take cases to trial and will do so if it is in your best interests.
  • What will my initial consultation involve? Your initial consultation will involve an in-depth discussion about your situation where an attorney will evaluate your case. There is no cost or commitment associated with meeting with one of our lawyers.

What to Do if You Have a Legal Issue

The steps to take if you have a legal issue or believe that one may arise soon depend on a number of factors and will be different depending on the area of law. For example, if you are involved in a contract dispute with a client or customer, you should make sure to keep detailed records about your agreement and any communication that you may have. If, on the other hand, you are considering disputing an existing child custody arrangement, you should try and collect evidence that supports the argument that the requested change would be in the best interests of the child.

Some of the general steps that you should take if you have a legal issue include the following:

  • Stay organized. Collect and place documents or other information that may be relevant to your case in a safe place.
  • Do not discuss the matter with anyone else.
  • If your legal issue is related to a dispute that you are having with another person or a business, keep detailed notes any communication that you may have.
  • Contact an attorney.

Legal problems can affect nearly every aspect of your life, so it important to make sure your rights are protected and that you are fully aware of the implications of your decisions. Additionally, failing to address legal issues property in the first place can lead to significant difficulties in the future.
