Can I afford a lawyer?
The Eastman Law Office accepts
cases on a contingency fee basis and may advance
costs and expenses to help you and your family
in your time of need. A “contingency fee”
means that you do not pay the Eastman Law Office
unless your case is settled or successfully tried.
The “fee” is taken from the proceeds
of the settlement or verdict.
Do I have a good case?
I don’t know.
Every case is different and
must be carefully evaluated on its own facts and
circumstances. We have years of experience and
expertise in evaluating cases. We will first meet
with you and your family. We will then extensively
investigate your claim and have experts evaluate
the case. Even then, it may be hard to conclusively
tell you whether you have a “good”
case. However, you can be sure that we will be
honest and forthright with you about your situation.
How long will my case take?
That depends on the case.
It usually takes between two
to four years to bring a case to a jury. Many
cases are resolved much sooner than that. On occasion,
cases will take longer than four years. However,
you can be assured that the Eastman Law Office
will vigorously pursue your claim within the bounds
of excellence and professionalism.
