Frequently Asked Questions

After our consultation will I be passed off to a legal assistant?

When Sutter Law Group, LLC accepts your case you are NEVER passed off to a legal assistant or inexperienced legal professional. You have direct access to your attorney, receiving personalized legal counsel every step of the way. We are not simply your law firm, we are your counselor at law.

I've been arrested what do I do next?

Our immediate advice is to make sure that you exercise your right to remain silent. You do not have to speak with officers or investigators about your charges. As long as you provide all personal information requested, you are within your rights to decline answering other questions. Next, you should retain a reputable criminal defense lawyer right away who can advocate on your behalf and ensure your rights are not violated in any way.

Will I go to jail for my charges?

Remember, you are innocent until proven guilty. You will have a chance to fight your charges and get them reduced, dismissed, or even reduced. Also, you can work out a plea bargain with the prosecution to settle for alternative options to prison time. For example, if convicted of DUI, you could work out a deal to attend a substance abuse program rather than spend time in jail. You may also be granted probation over jail time, especially if your crime is a non-violent offense.

After a personal injury or wrongful death settlement how soon after is the money received and distributed?

In many cases, the funds relating to your personal injury claim are received within 7 to 14 days after the release is signed. Cases involving an extremely large settlement, the State, private individuals, and/or out-of-area insurance companies often take much longer. In some instances, Sutter Law Group, LLC will have to obtain the approval of the Court before a settlement is finalized.

How much will my personal injury case cost me and how do I pay Sutter Law Group?

All personal injury cases are unique. The Sutter Law Group, LLC typically handles personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. That means our fee is a percentage of the recovery our firm is able to obtain for you. We also have attorneys available for hire if you would prefer to pay on an hourly basis.

How do I know if I have a medical malpractice case?

A bad medical result doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve experienced malpractice. Even with the best of care, things can go wrong. Generally, to win a medical malpractice case, you must have expert medical testimony that no reasonable health care provider would have done what yours did. Reasonableness is generally determined by looking at what is reasonable care in view of the:

 

•   Available knowledge
•   Geographic location where care occurred
•   State of medical practices at the time of the illness or injury

You must also prove through expert testimony that the negligence of your health care provider was a cause of injury or death. A doctor can be negligent, for example, and still not be liable, if the injury or death was caused by some other factor.
