I think my employer may be violating my rights, can I sue them?
As an employee of a company, you have an obligation to uphold the standards of the organization, and in turn they have an obligation to grant your rights as an employee. Employees are sometimes afraid to voice their opinion in fear of retaliation. Keep in mind that there are many instances where an employee may not agree with the actions or decisions of the employer, however this does not necessarily make the employer's actions unlawful; this is especially true in an "At Will" state. It is strongly recommended that you contact us immediately to discuss your concerns, and we can assure you that we will maintain a high level of discretion as you consult with us regarding your needs.
I was involved in an accident that wasn't my fault, and the insurance company offered a settlement; should I take it?
Keep in mind that the other party's insurance company works for the opposition, not for you, so it is in their best interest to attempt to pay you off as quickly as possible to limit their liability. There may be unforeseen damages and consequences that can put you at a disadvantage in the future, so before you accept any offers from an insurance company and waive your rights, do yourself a favor and contact us right away to discuss your matter and prevent further losses and damages.
I have a charge pending against me in court, but it might cost me more to hire a lawyer than it would to just pay the fine. Why shouldn't I just plead guilty?
Many defendants don't take into consideration the possible consequences of being convicted in court, including the damage it can do to your record, your name, and your reputation. This could possibly have an negative effect on your ability to drive, get a job, or could even sway future court proceedings that you may be involved in. It is highly recommended that you consult with an attorney and avoid making these types of decisions without being fully informed.
