What We Mean When We Say “Free Evaluation”
When the attorneys at Davis Levin Livingston say we offer a free consultation, we really do mean free. During the consultation, we will sit down with you, listen to your problems and concerns regarding your case, and then provide your with our initial thoughts–at not cost to you. This is essentially an interview where we can learn more about you, and you learn more about us.
Why You Should Contact Us for an Initial Consultation
Before making your decision on hiring an attorney, it’s likely you have several questions. Even if you’re unsure that you have a case, we can still answer your most pressing questions and provide sound advice that can ease your worries. Common questions you may have during this “interview” include the law firm’s rates (how much they charge), what type of personal injury law they practice (so you know if your claim matches their expertise), how much your case is worth (which is a difficult question to answer, but the more information you provide, the more likely we can come up with an estimate on what you’re able to receive), and how long your case may take (which depends on several factors, but it is important you know that the case most likely won’t take a few weeks, but rather months).
The free consultation will also allow our attorneys to understand the type of personal injury, wrongful death, or other claim you have. When you give us more information regarding any injuries, pain and suffering, who may have been at fault, and the damages you’ve suffered, we will be able to provide you with sound advice on possible next steps.
Also, keep in mind that it is an initial consultation. If you feel that we may not be the right fit for you, or if we realize that you may need further assistance that is not in our expertise, you have the right to pursue another attorney. Regardless, the consultation is still free of charge.
