Q?

How much money will I recover?

A.

The answer to that is simple...You never can tell. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not being 100% truthful. We take an extremely aggressive posture with all parties we negotiate with and WE WILL MAXIMIZE YOUR RECOVERY.

Q?

How long will it take?

A.

Another question that cannot be honestly answered. You never know how long one case will take from start to finish. We pride ourselves on our fast and efficient staff. Our paralegals, secretaries and attorneys are not only well educated individuals but they are practical professionals with the skills needed to MOVE CASES.

Q?

Will I have to pay if my case loses?

A.

NO!! Sinel & Associates, PLLC will not charge you one dime if we lose, whether we spend one hour or 100 hours on your case, we do not want to lose. We only get paid when we win.

Q?

Will my case go to trial or will it be settled beforehand?

A.

We prepare all of our cases for trial. This way the insurance companies know we mean business. There is no better leverage in negotiations with an insurance company than to have a law firm behind you that will take your case all the way to trial if necessary.

At Sinel & Associates, PLLC, we have trial attorneys on staff. Our firm has a reputation amongst insurance carriers and at the courthouse as a law firm that will go to trial with a seasoned attorney. Most cases settle without the necessity of having a trial, however to get the maximum recovery with a settlement it is critical to have a firm that can legitimately threaten and back it up that they will proceed all the way to a jury verdict if there is not enough of a settlement being offered.

Q?

Do I need money to hire a lawyer?

A.

At Sinel & Associates, PLLC, we handle all of our negligence cases on a contingency fee basis. That means that we only charge a legal fee if we are successful and recover money for you. Our fee is typically 33 1/3% of the net recovery after the costs and disbursements that we advance are deducted. The fees that we charge in medical malpractice cases are even lower. So, with a free consultation, a firm that advances all of the necessary costs, and a contingency fee arrangement, with Sinel & Associates, PLLC, you can have a reputable law firm pursue your rights with no out of pocket expenses.
