If you are planning on hiring an attorney, the sooner you hire one the better. While you can hire an attorney at nearly any point in the process, it often takes a significant amount of time to prepare for a case. The attorney may need to gather information and evidence, subpoena records and witnesses, and come up with a game plan for trial. This takes time, so the sooner you start down the proper path the better you will be prepared.
Another benefit of retaining an attorney sooner is that it can be more affordable. Often attorneys can offer payment plans. These payment plans are based on timetables of the case, so the earlier you retain an attorney, the easier it is to spread out the payments. At Higginbottom Law P.C. we offer payment plans to fit most budgets. Please call 757-320-2141 to schedule your free 30 minute consultation.
