What Should I Do Following an Arrest?
If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, it is important to
not speak with any law enforcement officials or accept any plea deals
until you have consulted with a trustworthy El Paso criminal defense attorney.
Law enforcement will often pretend to be on your side, and even lie to
you, in order to gather evidence they need to prosecute your case. By
speaking with them, you only run the risk of further incriminating yourself.
Your best chance of obtaining a positive outcome is exercising your constitutional
right to remain silent and consulting with an attorney immediately.
What Should I Do Following an Injury?
If you have suffered serious injury due to the negligence or intentional
actions of another party, you may have legal cause to pursue monetary
damages. The first thing you should always do is seek immediate medical
treatment. Also, if possible, collect evidence from the scene of the accident,
including photographs. Obtain the contact information of all parties involved,
including those who may be responsible for your injuries and witnesses.
Finally, contact an experienced El Paso personal injury lawyer to handle
Does your law firm charge contingency fees for injury claim cases?
Yes, the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz offers contingency fees for personal
injury claim cases, which is pretty standard. What is not standard is
that we only use contingency fees of 25% of a settlement’s value,
whereas most other law firms expect 33%, 40%, 45%, or up to 50%. If we
cannot win you a fair settlement, award, or verdict, you do not have to
pay your attorney fees, either.
Why Should I Hire a Family Law Attorney?
From divorce proceedings to issues involving child custody to name changes,
there are numerous legal matters that fall under the umbrella of family
law. Unfortunately, the law and legal system regarding this area is often
complex, confusing, and difficult to navigate alone. By having a well-versed
El Paso family law attorney at your side, you can more easily work your
way through the system, have your questions answered, ensure that all
paperwork and documentation is correctly filled-out and filed, and greatly
increase your chances of a positive outcome.
