When should you seek legal help?
You should seek legal help as soon as you think you may have a problem. Hesitating can lead to unnecessary stress and can cause you to miss an opportunity to defend yourself before things get out of hand. You should also seek legal assistance after a court determines an issue, to see if you have a right to appeal the decision.
You can speak to a lawyer in confidence, and with our offices, you will get a free initial consultation. If you think you have a legal issue and you need to talk, call our office today!
What we can do for you:
We take your rights and your defense very seriously; you should have a zealous defense whatever consequences you may be facing.
This office will investigate the facts of the incident that led to your arrest. We also scrutinize the way the police conducted their investigation. Were your constitutional rights respected at all turns? Was evidence contaminated through failure to follow the appropriate procedures? Is there any evidence the prosecution isn’t revealing? All of this and more will be investigated on your behalf.
If you are facing a civil suit, we will help you to defend against any and all potential litigants. Shannon K. McDonald will examine the situation and determine the facts leading up to your problem. She will try to counter-claim against the plaintiffs, and will be able to appeal any decision by the trial court that is unjust or incorrect. She will take your civil suit as seriously as any criminal charge- because it is your reputation on the line, you need a great defense!
If you have already been through the court process, and a judge has made a decision, the fight isn’t over yet. You should consult with Shannon K. McDonald about the possibility of an appeal. Time is of the essence in an appeal, and whether you are facing criminal penalties or civil penalties, the matter is urgent.
