Do I really need legal representation?
Chances are, if you are asking yourself this question, the answer is "yes." Even seemingly minor issues can evolve into major legal problems if left unresolved. Competent legal representation is usually the best - sometimes the only - way to ensure that your rights are being protected from further violation. If you simply need legal advice or if you believe you have been the victim of negligence and would like to file a claim, a consultation with one of our personal injury attorneys about North Carolina statutes is free. A short visit to our office can ease any nagging questions you might have about personal injury and obtaining legal representation. Keep in mind that there is no cost to you to consult with one of our personal injury attorneys.
Will I need to pay attorney's fees up front?
Many of our cases, including most personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases, are handled on a contingency basis. This means that you pay nothing to us unless you collect damages. Our fees for criminal defense and other civil litigation that cannot be handled on a contingency basis are always reasonable and competitive. To find out whether we can handle your case on a contingency basis or not, please contact our office in North Carolina today to arrange a free consultation.
How much will I win?
Surely you have seen television or Yellow Pages ads in which attorneys make vague promises of "big cash" settlements and awards if you retain their services. Always beware of attorneys who lead with such promises, leaving their experience, track record, and rate of client satisfaction a mystery. At Melrose Law, our foremost commitment is to meeting and exceeding the expectations of our clients, providing outstanding legal representation and achieving superior results. With over 24 years of experience, Mark Melrose has established a reputation for being aggressive, knowledgeable, and highly successful. Rather than lure you in with inflated promises, we prefer to stand by our pledge to relentlessly pursue full and fair compensation for anyone who has suffered due to the wrongful conduct of others.
Will you accept my case?
Whether or not we accept your case depends on many factors that have to be considered on an individual basis. For example, in cases of medical malpractice, wrongful death, and other personal injury, we have to consider whether negligence can be proven or whether there is a direct causal link to the party you wish to take action against. Sometimes, the law simply does not support an action you may wish to take. Nevertheless, if you think you may have a case, please don't hesitate to contact us today to arrange a free consultation. We will be happy to consider your case, answer your questions, and address your expectations honestly and directly.
When should I contact an attorney?
If you wish to take legal action against another party, you should seek legal counsel immediately. By consulting with an attorney, you can make a more informed decision as to whether you wish to proceed. If you wait too long to take action, you may lose your chance. There is a concept called "statute of limitations" in law. This means you have a limited amount of time after the occurrence to file a lawsuit. Once this statute has expired, your claim is barred forever.
Remember, you are under no obligation to take legal action simply because you have consulted with Attorney Mark Melrose. Please contact Melrose Law today to arrange a free consultation.
