Should I execute a will?
Estate planning is not only for the elderly. Every adult should have an estate plan specifying what should happen to their property when they pass away. While most people prefer not to think too far ahead, death is a reality that is, for most of us, unplanned. It is much better to draw up your own will and testament than to rely on what the law has in store for everyone who did not take the time to do so. If you have a spouse and/or children, it is especially important for you to have a will to ensure they are properly taken care of once you have moved on.
When should I contact an attorney?
Act without delay. If you find yourself in a situation wherein you need legal advice, make contacting a skilled, experienced Great Neck attorney your priority. The sooner you seek legal advice, the easier it will be for your Great Neck attorney to build a strong case in your favor, whatever the charges or circumstances of your situation. Delay in obtaining legal counsel might lead to some important information being lost or forgotten, or allowing the other party involved in your dispute to build a stronger case against you. Often times, you also have to allow some time for your Great Neck attorney to review the case, file paper work and get the proceedings started.
How much should I say?
Be open and honest. Your Great Neck attorney can only help you insofar as you help him or her understand your case. Keeping details or information from your Great Neck lawyer only makes his or her job that much more difficult, which is in every case a detriment to your claim or defense. Your Great Neck lawyer is there to represent you and therefore you need to have enough trust in him or her to divulge everything pertaining to your situation. Your Great Neck attorney will in most cases ask questions that may seem very personal in nature, or might upset you. Remember that their only concern is to ensure you come out of the situation with the best results possible, and as such you should answer honestly and not feel defensive when being questioned.
Should I ask questions?
Ask questions and make sure you get answers. Your Great Neck attorney, if skilled, qualified and experienced, should expect you to have many questions about your case, their background, the cost of the proceedings and other aspects of the law. Any Great Neck lawyer who cannot or will not take the time to answer these questions clearly and openly should not be trusted. You should know exactly what to expect walking in to legal proceedings, from lawyer fees to court procedures. Make sure you are comfortable with your Great Neck attorney and that they can explain legal jargon to your entire satisfaction before deciding to hire him or her.

Depending on the case, we offer an hourly rate or a flat rate. Our lawyers and paralegals keep detailed logs of the time they spend on your case. We count in ten minute increments and round down when in-between them. Work logs will be disclosed to all clients upon the closing of a case. We only work for as long as a case requires, so you’ll never be overbilled for unproductive time. Final bills will include costs for copy, filing, messengers, and third-party research tools.
