How do I know if a have a good case?
Call us and ask for a consultation. We will help you determine the validity of your case. We are litigation specialists – not transactional attorneys. That simply means that all of our cases involve some sort of dispute and often result in a lawsuit. So we are familiar with the courtroom and have a very keen sense – informed from our experience – of what cases are worth pursuing. We’ll use that skill to advise on the merits of your case.
What is a retainer?
A retainer is essentially a down payment or deposit on your legal fees and expenses.
What is “discovery?”
Discovery is when parties to a lawsuit exchange information to prepare for the case to be resolved, in or out of court. During discovery, the law requires each side to disclose relevant information or evidence that the other side asks for. This information exchange takes place in proceedings called depositions, interrogatories, request for documents, and requests for admissions. We caution you to never enter a discovery proceeding without an attorney. If you’re facing a deposition or have otherwise been requested to provide information that’s pertinent to a lawsuit, please call us right away so we can protect your rights.
