By far, the most frequent question I have been asked is
The answer is it really depends on your particular situation.
For instance, if you are injured in an auto accident, it depends on the facts of the case and the type of injuries you receive. In simple cases with only minor injuries, we have told many people how to handle their case themselves along with free advice on roughly what to expect.
If you are in doubt, pick up the phone and call us for an honest assessment of your situation.
If you are charged with a criminal offense, it would be extremely rare for us to tell someone they don't need a lawyer. In these cases, your criminal record, your drivers license, your reputation and your freedom may be at risk. Again, just pick up the phone and call us for a free consultation.
If you receive a traffic citation, whether you need a lawyer depends on the particular charge. Traffic citations can be particularly tricky as they can affect your Drivers License, your insurance and possibly even leave you with a criminal conviction on your record.
Call us to be on the safe side. It will cost you nothing to call.
