I’ve been injured and it’s not my fault: do I need a lawyer?

If you have been injured, you should at least con­sult a lawyer to deter­mine if you have a claim. Expe­ri­enced per­sonal injury attor­neys know how to prop­erly value a claim for per­sonal injury and can guide you through the process of get­ting com­pen­sated for your damages.

Won’t a lawyer just take 13 of my recov­ery for some­thing the insur­ance com­pany would have paid out anyway?

Not nec­es­sar­ily. Insur­ance com­pa­nies want you to take the low­est amount pos­si­ble for you to set­tle your claim. Hav­ing a lawyer rep­re­sent you can and often does increase the amount of com­pen­sa­tion you receive for your injury. By hir­ing an attor­ney, you can get a proper val­u­a­tion of your claim and ensure that you receive the right amount of recov­ery for treat­ment, lost wages, and men­tal anguish.

Do I really need a will?

A will is not legally nec­es­sary — if you pass on and do not leave a will, your prop­erty will still be dis­trib­uted to other peo­ple. How­ever, if you want your prop­erty to be dis­trib­uted accord­ing to your wishes with a min­i­mum of fuss or court involve­ment, a will makes the entire pro­bate process much eas­ier. In addi­tion, you can plan for your senior years by des­ig­nat­ing pow­ers of attor­ney, med­ical pow­ers of attor­ney and advance med­ical directives.

What kind of fees do you charge?

Every case is han­dled dif­fer­ently. Reyes Miller Law is more than will­ing to work out a sys­tem that’s eas­i­est for you — whether it’s hourly billing, con­tin­gency or a flat fee rate.
