How Do I Know If I Need an Attorney?
Should I hire an attorney or handle things on my own?
Any time there is a legal question or legal issue involved in a dispute — whether it is civil or criminal — never try to handle these legal matters on your own. A dry cleaner overcharges you or damages an item — you can handle that dispute. But a business whose negligence results in a slip and fall? You need an attorney. Most attorneys offer free consultations.
Why do I need an attorney if I am injured in an accident?
Remember that insurance adjusters have one job: To make sure their companies pay as little as possible to parties who are injured in an accident. Before you accept a settlement from an insurance company, it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney. Your personal injury attorney will help you ensure that you are fairly compensated for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
When should I hire an attorney?
If you are injured in an auto accident, during a slip and fall, on the job, or on a construction site, call an attorney who specializes in personal injury. If you’ve been charged with a crime, always hire an experienced trial attorney to ensure your rights are protected. If someone you love is a victim of nursing home neglect or wrongful death, hire an attorney who will seek justice for your loved one.

Mike tawil was very compassion and thorough in handling my mother’s nursing home neglect and abuse. We are very satisfied and will not hesitate to use him again.
