Find Out How Much Time You Have
Many state and federal laws dictate that you file a complaint or lawsuit within a short time after you come up against actionable treatment. Generally, you have up to 180 days to file a lawsuit after unlawful treatment. However, a lawyer can tell you what time limitations apply to your case. If you feel the need to file a complaint, you should talk to a lawyer as quickly as possible to discuss your options.
What Questions Should I Ask a Lawyer?
Pursuing a legal claim can be financially and emotionally draining especially without legal help. Even if you do have legal help, the experience can be long and tiring. However, your lawyer will help you through the process. You should ask the following questions:
- What legal options do I have?
- What should I do next?
- Does my case have any strong points?
- What are the implications of pursuing legal recourse?
- What do you charge for legal services?
- How experienced are you in handling cases like mine?
- What are the chances of success?
- How much will it cost to pursue this claim?
It is possible that you may feel uncomfortable asking too many questions, but you shouldn’t worry about that. Your attorney’s job is to help you so feel free to ask as many questions as you need concerning your case. Don’t forget to find out the costs of your attorney’s services from your first contact. There may be a service charge for the first meeting even if you choose not to hire your attorney.
Low-Cost Legal Representation
It is possible to get legal aid at little or no cost. Many states have organizations that help you pursue your rights at reduced rates or no cost at all. But you should know not every legal aid organization provides support for clients in every area of legal practice.
Many legal aid organizations specialize in criminal law, housing law or family law rather than on civil litigation issues. Also, these organizations typically restrict aid to clients who are low-income earners or unemployed at the time. In addition, even if the organization. You close to you can’t provide legal aid, they may provide referrals for you or give you other helpful options.
