Answers to Questions You Might Want to Ask an Experienced, Affordable Lawyer Near You

No matter what situation has you looking for an experienced, affordable lawyer near you, you probably have lots of questions. It's not every day you face a circumstance like this, and the uncertainty of it all only adds to the stress you're feeling.

The best way to get answers to your specific questions is to schedule an appointment where we can sit down and discuss the details of what's going on for you. But in the meantime, here are some of the most common questions clients ask - and answers that may help you get some peace of mind.


Do I stand a chance of getting custody of my children?

There's nothing more gut wrenching for parents than to face the possibility of losing everyday contact with their children because of a divorce. The particulars of every child custody case can vary so dramatically from one situation to another that it's not possible to answer this question without sitting down to talk about your case.

However, with an experienced lawyer's help, at least you can know that you're doing all you can to do what's in the best interest of your children.

Have you handled this kind of case before?

Also a very good question. While there really aren't official specialties in the law, it's important to find an attorney who's handled cases like yours before. Before you hire an attorney, be sure to ask about this to make sure you will have representation by an experienced attorney.

The cases I've handled most often are:
- Divorces
- Child Custody
- Personal Injury
- Criminal Defense

How much is legal representation going to cost me?

This is a completely reasonable question to ask. After all, nobody saves up to pay legal fees. It's almost always an unexpected expense. Plus, so many attorneys charge hundreds and hundreds of dollars an hour and require enormous retainers before you can get legal help for your case.

It's not like that at the Law Office of David Dumbroff. It's much simpler, much more affordable. The hourly rate is $300. That's it. You're not paying for a fancy high-rise office building, a huge staff, or an expensive wardrobe. You're still getting the same education and experience - just none of the extra expenses big firms pass along to clients.

Also, let's say you have a quick question regarding your case. With the big firms, the clock starts ticking as soon as the call goes through, and you pay for every single minute. That's not how I'd want to be treated - and it's not how it is in my firm.

Will my injury be covered? What about my medical bills? Do I have a case?

The outcome of personal injury and workman's compensation cases can be tricky to predict. Until you've had a meeting with an experienced attorney, it's nearly impossible to get a clear idea of what's likely to happen.

If you've been injured, you've got a lot of concerns to deal with all at once. You've got physical pain, worries about your job, anxiety about bills, and probably a host of people giving you all sorts of advice. The best move you can make is to call an experienced lawyer to find the best course of action for your particular situation.

Am I going to jail?

Whether you've been cited for DUI or DWI, or accused of some other crime, this may be the most stressful situation you've ever experienced. Not only are you wondering what will happen to you and your family, but you're probably also worried about finding an attorney who can present your defense in court.

There's no way to know what the outcome of your case will be without sitting down and talking together. Even then, it can be hard to know for sure. However, by hiring an experienced attorney, at least you'll have guidance from someone who's handled cases like yours and who knows what has worked - or not worked - in the past. You'll feel most at ease knowing you're not facing this situation alone.
