Questions people often ask attorney George Johnson

What if I can't afford legal fees?

If you hire me, my services are provided on a contingency fee basis. That means that you do not pay me any money upfront. I only receive an attorney fee if we are successful in your case. If we are unsuccessful for any reason, you do not owe me anything.

How do I know whether I have a case that can really win in court?

All cases are important, and I know you would not be looking to hire a lawyer unless it is serious. My consultation is free, so we can evaluate the strength of your case and likelihood of success together.

How much will it cost to meet with you and evaluate my case?

My consultation is free, and if you hire me and I have the privilege of helping you, I do not receive an attorney fee unless we are successful settling your case or winning at trial.

If I'm in Georgia, Florida or Pennsylvania but I don't live near your office for me to visit with you, can you still handle my case?

Yes, absolutely. I understand life's daily demands, and I am willing to meet you at your home or a more convenient location of your choice.

Return to Top

What do you need from me to get started?

Just a moment of your time to get to know you and learn the facts of your case to see how I can help. If you hire me, then I will start fighting for your case.

Return to Top

What happens if my suit is rejected by the judge? How much will I have to pay?

Nothing. If the case is unsuccessful for any reason, you will not owe me any attorney fees or costs.

Return to Top

I have heard of attorney-client privilege, but what does it mean? When does it start?

This is an important concept that protects others from ever being allowed to know what you discuss with me. This protection begins right away as soon as you talk with me.

Return to Top

How long will it take to resolve my case?

The time it takes to receive justice in your case can vary widely. Our justice system can be unpredictable. It could be as short as a few months or as along as a few years. However, regardless if the time, I am committed to your case for as long as it takes, but I always do my very best to resolve your case successfully in the shortest time possible.

Return to Top

I have heard that the lawyers get all the money in these cases. Is that true?

No, that is not true. In fact, I pride myself on ensuring this does not happen in my cases. I never let my clients receive less in a settlement than the attorney fee amount.

Return to Top

If I hire you to take my case, does that automatically mean we are going to court?

No. In fact, I will do everything possible to reach out to who caused your injury or loss and attempt to resolve your case successfully before filing a lawsuit.

Return to Top

If we file a lawsuit, does that automatically mean we are going to court and having a trial?

No. In fact, the overwhelming majority of cases resolve in some way before ever getting to trial. Your case can still be settled before trial even if we have to file a lawsuit.

Return to Top

What will I be asked to do after I hire you?

You will simply be asked to keep in touch with me periodically so I know how you are doing and if there have been any changes since we last spoke. Otherwise, I will keep you updated on important events in your case and I will prepare you and be with you for all events you are required to attend such as your deposition and trial if your case cannot be settled prior to filing a lawsuit.

Return to Top

I have a personal injury situation which is kind of unusual, can you still help me?

Every case is unique, but my job is to evaluate the facts of your case where the law can provide you just compensation no matter how unusual or unique.
