The following are answers to some of the most common questions we are asked.
We look forward to meeting with you and answering any other questions you may have.
What will it cost to have you represent me?
We will consider a Contingent Fee Agreement (i.e., a percentage we agree to in advance) payment plan in place for all slip and fall and assault cases.
If your claim is completed on a fee-for-service, we will walk you through the process. However, we want to remind everyone that it is difficult to predict the overall cost as it depends on the other side’s behavior and outcome more so than on anything that you (the client) or we may do.
How long will this take?
Different kinds of legal problems have very different timelines. Personal injury claims usually need to see you recovered before meaningful headway can be made toward a settlement. Debt collections can be slow or fast depending on the debtor’s situation, where they reside and several other factors.
While each situation can be different, we keep you informed about the progress of your file and are always happy to hear from you and answer your questions.
How long do I have to bring a claim?
Regardless of their nature, all claims are governed by a limitation period. We will check the applicable limitation period for your claim during our first meeting. If your right to bring a claim has expired, we will tell you right away, so you don’t waste your time or money.
Occasionally, the commencement date, and therefore the expiry date, of a limitation period is unclear. If this is the case with your claim, we will give you appropriate advice and work with you to decide on reasonable next steps.
