Q:

If I am injured at work, is it necessary for me to notify my supervisor of the event?

A:

Yes, you must give your employer notice of the incident as soon as possible; you might even have less time than you think. You may also contact us for a free initial consultation and case evaluation.


Q:

Do I have to pay any fee just to find out if I have a case?

A:

Not necessarily. In cases involving workers compensation, motor vehicle accidents, and social security disability, we offer a free initial consultation. The consultation is without obligation and allows you to make an informed decision on whether further legal services are required.

Q:

How involved am I in my case? Am I kept in the loop?

A:

The lawyer-client relationship is best when it is based on mutual understanding. The exact result in any case can not be predicted with mathematical certainty. An effort will be made, however, to explain everything regarding your case, including the risks involved and the probability of success. As your attorneys, we may advise or recommend, but you will have to make certain decisions. If you have any doubts or questions, or something is not clear, please ask us for clarification.

Q:

I am really overwhelmed and I don't know if I can afford an attorney. How do I have to pay for services rendered?

A:

For services involving workers compensation, automobile collisions, and social security, statements are not prepared since the fee is paid as a percentage of the recovery. For more information about service fees and potential rewarded recovery amounts, please speak with someone in our office.

Q:

I don't want people knowing that I have been consulted by an attorney. I understand certain people or organizations involved in my case will know what's going on, but what about future employers and other individuals?

A:

Your legal matters are held in strict confidence. You are protected by the attorney-client privilege when discussing your case with the attorney or members of his or her staff. No improper information shall be given to your employer, friends, relatives, or anyone else without your permission.
