Every case is different and it is important that you actually consult with an attorney on your legal issues, to address all aspects of your matter.

If you are contemplating filing a civil action to redress a wrong or injury, it is important that you consult with an attorney early in the process to ensure that your interests are protected, and that you do not miss any applicable deadlines for filing (aka statute of limitations).
