Protect Your Future.

  1. Remember that time is of the essence. Stalling or failing to retain legal counsel makes it more difficult to gather witness statements and favorable evidence while memories are fresh. Additionally, relevant evidence in your case may only be retained by law enforcement for a short amount of time.
