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.
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.
If you hire me, I will personally handle your case from start to finish.
I serve the entire state of Georgia. We also serve Florida and Pennsylvania.
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.
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.
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.
Nothing. If the case is unsuccessful for any reason, you will not owe me any attorney fees or costs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
