A1)  Do I need an Attorney?

You should always consult an attorney regarding legal matters. Your initial meeting with the attorney will afford you the opportunity to discuss the facts and merits of your claim, discuss the law, procedures and fees. Find out what your attorney can reasonably do for you. Most consultations are free.

A2)  How long do I have to decide?
The law requires you to settle your claim or start court proceedings within certain specified time frames. In many instances specific notice must be given within a limited time frame. You should consult your attorney.
A3)  Can I afford an Attorney?

We accept Personal Injury cases (such as car accidents) and Workers' Compensation cases on a contingent basis. That means we don’t get paid until you win your case. The initial consultation is free.

In Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income cases, we get paid when you win
