You are welcome to schedule an appointment by calling the office at (702) 678-1999.
The initial consultation is free. In most cases, I will set up a payment plan with you. Overall fees and initial retainer depend on type/complexity of case. Personal Injury cases require no initial fee, as payment will be contingent upon recovery.
All clients meet directly with Attorney: Corey B. Beck, Esq.
Any prospective case is evaluated by learning facts and applying it to relevant law.
Generally, most Attorneys and Judges are professional and fair in their actions. Preparation in any legal case is the gateway to success i.e. If the parties and Judge know we are prepared, then the case is “on track” for favorable outcome.
At my law firm, everyone is respectful and understanding of our clients’ needs. Moreover, my staff is well-seasoned. All of my employees have been with me for at least several years. Moreover, in all of our cases, I design a “blueprint” as to how and when the case is executed.
Individuals who need to file for bankruptcy can file a case. Eligibility for specific chapters depends on household income and amount of debt.
Chapter 7 cases are for individuals that have unsecured debt (credit cards, medical bills, deficiency balances, and personal loans). Chapter 7 cases are also reviewed in terms of individuals’ income versus average (Median Income). If the household income is less than the median, then there is a presumption that person(s) are eligible for Chapter 7. I have represented many individuals who are Over-Median (over the average). The most common exception for an Over-Median Individual in Chapter 7is that a person’s expenses nets-out their income. There are other exceptions that allow an Above-Median Debtor to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is a viable option to save your house or pay taxes. A “classic” Chapter 13 case allows an individual to “reorganize” by providing an extra 5 years to pay the required debts. In Chapter 13 cases, second mortgages can be avoided. Moreover, an investment property, a house, or condo can be “crammed down” (marked down to Fair Market Value). However, in Chapter 13 cases, the Fair Market Value must be paid in 5 years. Therefore, if $200,000 is owed and the property is worth $70,000, then the property may well be a candidate for Chapter 13. In particular, the rent will allow the property to cash flow and be paid-off in 5 years.
Chapter 11 provides a means to reorganize and save a business. Similarly, a person can file a Chapter 11 case (Individual Chapter 11 Bankruptcy). Houses can be “marked down” to Fair Market Value. In many instances, properties “cash flow” as rent pays for new mortgage.
Finding out and understanding facts are crucial elements in business matters. Moreover, it is also important to consider relevant law as it applies to your case.
In District Court (State Court), a person can opt-in to Business Court. The advantage of this is to have an experienced Judge handling the complicated matter.
In some business cases, it is appropriate to seek an Injunction to protect business/person’s interest. To obtain Injunction relief, “Irreparable Harm” and “Probability of Success on Merits” must be established before the Court. I have obtained Injunction when one partner is “freezing out” another without any reason.
If the opposing party is not negotiating in “good faith”, then litigation is necessary. Cost-Benefit Analysis should be applied in business cases. A final consideration is evaluating motivations of parties, attorneys, and judge in the case. Understanding the opposing-side’s perspective, as well as the Court’s perspective, is just as important as the facts/law of the case.
Get medical treatment if you are injured. My office can help with all of the details, such as getting your car fixed, opening claims, and finding close medical providers for treatment. Take pictures of the vehicles involved to show the extent of the damage. Similarly, take pictures of any obvious injuries to person(s).
After you have been released from treatment is the appropriate time to submit the Demand.
This question can only be evaluated after treatment is completed. By evaluating medical bills and Doctor’s Statement, then the claim for compensation can be submitted.
In all cases, there is an arraignment (statement of charges filed). At this hearing, there is discovery (police reports/statements) given by the District Attorney to counsel for the accused. In many cases, there is an Early-Offer. After arraignment, the evidence provided, as well as the law, should be discussed.
No. Communications to your attorney are privileged. Conversations with friends/investigators are “fair game” to be admitted as evidence.
Any evidence of inconsistent statements can exonerate an accused person. For this reason, police reports/statements are examined very closely.
Persons with prior criminal history will be treated more strictly. Another important consideration is facts, which can possibly be proven. A final consideration is potential jail time that can apply for the specific offense. After evaluating these factors, a discussion regarding the plea can be evaluated.
