Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need a lawyer?
    • It depends on your case. It is always a good idea to at least talk to a lawyer about your case. Some cases are simple enough that you may be able to handle your particular case without a lawyer as long as you do your homework, get help when needed, and are good at following rules and procedures.

      But there are many cases that are very complicated and, without a lawyer, you could hurt or even lose your case, no matter how strong it is and how right you think you are.

  • What should I expect in a lawyer?
    • You can expect conversations with your attorney to remain confidential.  Your attorney should help you analyze your problem, explore possible solutions and determine the cost-effectiveness of various strategies.  Your attorney cannot and should not guarantee an outcome; however, you can expect your lawyer to be your best advocate and represent you in a competent, professional manner
  • Do you have free initial consultations?
    • Yes.
  • Do I need a will?
    • A will is a document stating exactly how you want your assets to be distributed at the time of your death.  If you die without a will, you are leaving it up to state statutes to dictate how your assets will be distributed without regard to your desires or the needs of your heirs.  In addition to a will, we can assess your financial situation and determine if other estate planning documents may be in your best interests and in the best interests of the loved ones you leave behind.
