Caution: Some “distance,” “virtual,” “out of state,” or “nationwide” law firms only agree to represent you “Pre-Litigation.” This means you are dropped as a client if a quick (and low) settlement is not achieved. Please be aware opposing counsel can easily figure out if you are represented by a “demand and drop” law firm who poses nothing more than a nuisance threat. If this sounds like a familiar situation, please contact us immediately.x
