Frequently Asked Questions for Our Injury Attorneys in Baltimore, Maryland
It is natural to have many questions when dealing with a legal issue. LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton is here for you. We understand that many of our clients have never come into contact with the law before, and we take the time to break things down into layman’s terms to ensure you understand what comes next in your case. Below are just a few questions we often receive from our clients:
Why should I choose your law firm over another?
There are many reasons to choose LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton over another Maryland law firm. Our firm’s office atmosphere is designed to make you feel comfortable, and we act promptly to help you through the entirety of your case. Additionally, our team has more than 100 years of combined experience practicing law, we routinely produce exceptional results at the negotiation table and in court, and we have earned recognition from our peers as a result of our ethical nature and legal expertise.
How much is this going to cost me?
If you have been injured due to another’s negligence or have a Social Security Disability or workers compensation claim, you pay us absolutely nothing until we win your case. If you have come to our firm to file for bankruptcy or to seek representation in a criminal case, we can work out a payment plan with you based on your financial circumstances.
When can I expect my legal matter to be resolved?
The duration of your case is dependent on its complexity. Personal injury cases can take months or years to be resolved depending on the period of discovery and whether you settle or go to court. Bankruptcy can be completed in a matter of months or years depending on the type you file. Chapter 7 bankruptcies are often resolved relatively quickly, whereas Chapter 13 bankruptcies last anywhere from 36 to 60 months.
You should also keep in mind that any appeals can lengthen the time it takes for your case to come to its conclusion.
Do I really need an attorney?
While the court may not require you to hire an attorney for many types of cases, doing so is definitely in your best interest. Your opposition will most certainly have a skilled lawyer with a thorough understanding of Maryland law and you should, too.
