Some lawyers use the condescending excuse that "everything in the law is slow" and wait until the statute of limitations is about to run out before they start working on your case. You pay them a $3,000 retainer and then you have to nag and pester them to do anything.
I believe my clients with serious enough challenges to seek legal assistance have a right to prompt and immediate work on their case after they have retained me.
People tell me I "want everything done yesterday." I proudly plead guilty. I will worry and care about your case. You won't be another file to me.
I also speak conversational Spanish. Se Habla Español.
