If you were hurt by a person or business, you may ask yourself if you have a case. We urge you to ask a lawyer. Bringing a claim is expensive and time-consuming and good lawyers do not bring lawsuits without evaluating the probability of success. If you have a claim to make, please ask about it in a timely manner. Our state has rules about the time within which you can bring your claim. Civil cases for money damages are handled on a contingency fee basis. Some other cases, such as sex offender registry cases, are for declaratory relief only. In all civil cases, your consult is at no charge.
