How does the process of retaining an attorney happen?
We have you schedule an appointment to come in and discuss your situation. That way, you can get legal advice and decide on the best next steps to take. For most matters, there is no consultation fee.
Do you need to be represented by a lawyer?
If the issue involves interacting with the court system, then yes. I would never recommend that a non-lawyer attempt to represent themselves in a court of law. A lawyer can help you avoid common mistakes that could be damaging to your case.
Does it take special knowledge to represent particular kinds of clients.
Lawyers who have a lot of experience in the kind of cases they handle are generally better informed and better able to get successful results on behalf of their clients.
