“But I will close this review by letting you know that at the beginning of my hearing which was done over the phone due to COVID-19, the judge made it a point to tell my lawyer, Ruth Smith, that he had rarely ever seen such a thorough, clear, and conc...”
Will I have to go to court?
Not necessarily. Most cases are settled often before a lawsuit is filed and if your case results in litigation, your case may settle before or even during trial.
Why does The Elmore and Smith Law Firm, PC so frequently win favorable settlements?
We always deal from strength, never from weakness. We fully prepare the case to go to trial, hire the proper experts, do the proper investigation, research important legal issues of the case and take depositions of important witnesses.
If I have been referred to you by another lawyer, does that mean my case is going to cost me more money?
Absolutely not. Many of our clients are referred to us by other lawyers and any fee will be divided between the firms and your total fee will be the same as if only one firm was involved. You will not be required to pay any additional money.
How long will this process take?
There is no clear answer. Many defendants and insurance companies drag their feet and delay the conclusion of the case. Please understand that because our fee is contingent, The Elmore and Smith Law Firm, PC does not get paid until you do. Thus, there is clear incentive on our behalf to push your case for an early successful conclusion.
Will you take my case?
We can only accept meritorious cases. Sometimes the question of whether a case is meritorious can be answered immediately. In other instances, the law firm needs additional time, effort, and investigation to establish if a case has merit. If you have been seriously injured, we will use all of our resources to help you. If we are not able to accept employment in your case, we will notify you immediately and encourage you to obtain a second opinion. Because of the small number of cases we accept, we develop strong personal relationships with our clients.
