There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a lawyer to work with. The most important thing is that you find a lawyer you can trust to represent your interests in court and help you reach your goals. All lawyers work differently, so it is common to talk with multiple lawyers before choosing one that is a good fit for you.
At Jane Doe, our lawyers focus on working with survivors of sexual abuse on a multitude of legal issues that arise in the aftermath of the abuse. Some of our clients formally report their cases to the authorities and need help navigating the criminal justice system. Others have never disclosed the abuse to anyone and need a lawyer who understands the complex dynamics of an abusive relationship that plays a background role in their case. Regardless of the details surrounding the abuse, Jane Doe is here to work with you if you have experienced abuse of a sexual nature.
One of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make at Jane Doe is choosing your lawyer’s role in helping you reach a point of long-term resolution.
All clients enter our system through a complimentary phone intake. This is where we collect basic information about your case and make sure it is something we can help you with. Once that is established, we will invite you to schedule a no-cost consultation in our office. During our meeting, we will talk about your case in more detail and help you develop an action plan to reach your long-term goals. If that action plan involves any kind of legal action, then you have the option of retaining us to help you through the process.
When you decide to work with us, you will have the choice of two different types of legal help:
- Attorney-Client Partnership. In a traditional attorney-client partnership, your lawyer will handle all administrative aspects of your case and let you focus on making important decisions.
- Limited Scope Representation. If you choose to represent yourself in court, then your lawyer is available for coaching sessions whenever you need help or legal advice.
The first step is a no-charge telephone consultation with a lawyer to make sure we can help you reach your goals. To do this, call our office at 314-329-5339 between 9am-7pm CT, Monday-Friday.
