You must be honest with your attorney in order for us to help you – it’s OK, you can tell us everything!
Hiding embarrassing or seemingly meaningless information now will only become a bigger problem later on if your attorney doesn’t have a chance to come up with a game plan for you on how to handle it. We are very understanding, approachable, and non-judgmental. Our only goal is to help you, so we need to know the good, the bad, and the ugly. Things like prior arrests, illegal immigration status, back child support, and debt are never reasons why we can’t help you, as long as we know about them. Don’t be afraid to pursue your injury case just because you have a few skeletons in the closet – we all do!
