Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do you charge for first consultation?
We do not charge for initial consultation. At the free initial consultation, we will discuss the details of your potential case and issues, the legal process and answer any questions you may have.
Who will work on my case?
The law firm takes a team approach in every aspect of our practice. You as a client will be required only to provide information available to you and we will work on the rest. The professional team will be formed in accordance to your needs.
How long will my case take?
The length of a case, from the initial free consultation through to the resolution of the case by settlement or jury verdict, depends on several variables, so it is not possible to say exactly how long a case may take. The duration of a case is often dictated by the individual court in which the case is filed. Some courts designate a time period for discovery of evidence by each party that may be a year or longer. Other courts have a backlog of cases and therefore, the oldest cases in a region will be considered before a more recently filed case. Though some cases do settle before going to court, a settlement would not usually occur until just before the scheduled trial.
How will I be kept informed about my case?
At the outset of our representation, you will be provided with the name and contact information for a member of the Praelegal team that will be assisting you on your case. We will routinely keep you informed of significant developments in your case. We also encourage you to contact us by phone or e-mail at any time with questions and we will promptly reply.
Do I need a corporate lawyer to prepare my contracts?
It isn’t required that a contract should be written by a lawyer before it’s binding, if there is sufficient contractual language to establishing the legally binding obligations. But it is very crucial to advise a contract lawyer before signing a contract in order to avoid any legal issues in the future.
