If you are thinking about filing a lawsuit, and you haven’t suffered a physical injury that would make you a personal injury plaintiff, you may have a general civil plaintiff’s case. Because I believe I serve my clients – and potential clients – best by being entirely forthright, understand this: just because you have been wronged, does not mean you have a claim worth pursuing, or even a claim at all.
Many claims that fall into this category of litigation have time limits within which they most be brought, thanks to laws called ‘statutes of limitations.’ That is why is so important to promptly contact an attorney if you believe you have a claim, and why honest, reliable legal advice is so valuable.
When I meet with a civil plaintiff, I review the facts of their case, and I quickly determine whether or not, in my professional legal opinion, they have a case worth pursuing. My assessment may not always be what my potential clients want to hear, but my commitment to being forthright with clients begins from the very first call.
I limit free consultations for general civil plaintiff’s cases to fifteen minutes by phone. On that initial phone call I will determine whether we should go over your case in more detail, to begin planning a strategy to seek compensation for the wrong that has been done to you.
