Frequently Asked Questions of Prince Glover Law

by: Prince, Glover & Hayes Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

Will I have to go to Court?

-Possibly you will- but not necessarily. Nearly all cases are settled out of court, sometimes during at trial, often before it begins.

Why do you so frequently win favorable settlements?

-Because we always deal from strength, never from weakness. We’re always prepared to go to trial. The defendant knows about our years of experience and, sooner or later, understands how well prepared we are. There is no guarantee, of course, but at the right point a favorable settlement becomes more likely.

Will I have to take the witness stand? Will the other lawyer attack me and try to break me down in cross examination?

-Please understand: you are the victim in this case, and we will represent you. The process of winning compensation for what has been done to you should not be painful, and, for the vast majority of plaintiffs- it is not. Courtroom dramas on television are not real life. They are exaggerated for dramatic effect. Even actual televised trials are most often selected because they are sensational. In actuality, there is a plaintiff, a defendant, a judge and usually a jury in the courtroom. If the case is tried, the judge and jury are sworn to do what is right. Jurors are people like you, and they do not like lawyers abusing witnesses.

Can I afford your services?

-Your certainly can. We work on a contingency basis. What that means, in simple terms, is you pay no legal fees unless you win an award, either through settlement or trial. We make the full investment of money and time to win justice for you. If we succeed on your behalf, we are paid a percentage of the award. We are also reimbursed for our expenses.

Suppose I’ve been referred by another lawyer or law firm. Does that me my case is going to cost me more money?

-Absolutely not! Many of our clients are referred to us by other lawyers. It is these lawyers who pay our fee.
