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. Attorney Elizabeth Porter will guide you 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. Then call Elizabeth Porter to ask any questions you may have about your case and its consequences.
How much does legal representation cost?
Elizabeth will discuss legal fees with you regarding your specific case and needs, as fees will vary due to the type of case and the complexity of contested or uncontested issues.
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. It is likely that your case could be rejected if it is not filed in a timely manner. We recommend contacting us as soon as possible regarding your case, so we are able to best 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.
How do I know the status of my case?
During your case, Attorney Elizabeth Porter will send copies of important case documents directly to you to keep you informed of your case status. She will also provide follow-up phone calls and emails as your case progresses.
