Frequently Asked Questions

Will I Need an Attorney?

If you're not certain how to handle your case or what step you should take in the legal process, it is best to contact an attorney for advice. Call Elizabeth for a one hour consultation to get legal advice on the best options to take for your specific case.

What if I Get Arrested?

If arrested, you should obey the arresting officer. However, keep in mind that you have the right to remain silent and do not have to explain your circumstance or actions. You have the right to request an attorney as soon as possible, at which time law enforcement must stop speaking with you. 

How Much Does Legal Representation Cost?

Just as every person is different, every case is different. During your consultation, Elizabeth will evaluate what steps should be taken to determine the cost of her representation.

When Should I File a Suit?

Because every state has different laws and regulations on timing to file suits, it is best to contact an experienced attorney in your state. Your case could be dismissed if it is not filed in a timely manner. Contact us as soon as possible regarding your case. Elizabeth can advise you on the proper actions to take.

What Should I Do If I Have a Personal Injury Accident?

If you have had a personal injury accident, always seek medical attention first. Often, people may not experience any type of pain until hours or days after the accident. That is why we recommend seeking immediate medical treatment to evaluate your condition thoroughly. Holding off or delaying medical treatment could potentially harm your health and could put your case at risk of receiving less than full compensation. 

The second step is to contact Elizabeth for a consultation. 

How Do I Know the Status of My Case?

Throughout your case, Elizabeth will send you copies of important case documents to keep you informed of your case status. She will also schedule follow-up phone calls and emails as your case progresses.
