Why do I need a lawyer for my personal injury or workers compensation matter?
Insurance companies are thrilled to deal with those without legal counsel. Generally speaking, your recovery will be less than what may be obtained with proper representation by seasoned counsel. While only you know how your injuries affect your life, an experienced attorney can value your case much more accurately. After all, this is probably your first case; we have handled hundreds of cases. The insurance company's objective is to resolve your case by paying as little as possible; an attorney's job is to evaluate the facts and the law, and advocate for you to obtain the highest settlement possible. The insurance company knows that if they do not offer what is fair, the attorney will file suit. And remember, we handle all personal injury matters on a contingency basis. If we do not recover an award for you by way of settlement or trial, you do not owe us any legal fee.
Why do I need a lawyer for my real estate matter?
Buying a home is the most expensive purchase you will ever make. There are a thicket of issues to navigate, including negotiation of the contract, home inspection problems, financing terms, and the complex financial calculations required of the Real Estate Settlement and Practices Act amendments which became operative in January 2010. While you are not obligated to hire an attorney, you are well served by having an experienced guide and advocate working for you. And in our practice, an experienced attorney will be with you every step of the way; you will never be handed off to a paralegal or legal assistant.
Why do I need an estate plan?
Estate plans consist generally of a will, a living will and a power of attorney. Without a will, you cannot designate a guardian to care for your minor children, you cannot effectively minimize estate and inheritance taxes, and, in certain instances, the state could end up with your property. Without a living will, you cannot establish your wishes in the event a catastrophic illness or injury precludes you from expressing how much care you want. You could be left on life support and/or a feeding tube, effectively against your wishes and with ruinous financial effect to your family, because you can no longer speak for yourself. Without a power of attorney, your spouse or trusted companion cannot act on your behalf in financial matters in the event of your physical absence or physical or mental disability.
