With the Cain Firm, your injury claim will be handled by a legal team consisting of a Board Certified injury lawyer and a licensed insurance adjustor. For them to best apply their skills to your claim, time is crucial to ensure that your rights are protected, and our speedy investigation of your claim might preserve evidence that might not be available at a later time. Some practical tips to consider after an accident are as follows:
- If anyone has suffered serious injuries, call 911.
- Follow the advice of the medical personnel. If EMT personnel say you need an ambulance ride to the emergency room, follow their advice; they know best.
- Call us so that we can begin to immediately protect your claim!
Immediately after an injury or accident, you should not talk to anyone other than medical personnel, law enforcement or your attorney. Make written notes answering the Who, What, When, and Where of the accident. If possible, consider taking pictures of people involved and the actual scene of the accident. Lastly, serious injuries do not always cause immediate pain, so if you are injured, quickly seek treatment from your doctor.
With our firm on your side, you will not bear the burden of guessing about what the law might say about your case, or wondering how to deal with the at-fault party and their insurance company. Insurance companies are backed by their lawyers. Shouldn't you be, too?
Being arrested for a crime in Texas is a frightening introduction into the criminal justice system. Although this is a tough place to be, we are here to help. The following is practical advice to follow if you have been arrested or charged with a crime:
- Exercise your 5th Amendment right to remain silent. Our Constitution is for you. Use it.
- Speak only about your case with your attorney, not your friends or others near you.
- If an investigator asks you to come in "just to talk", agree to a time and date, but contact us to join you in that meeting. DO NOT do this alone.
Your criminal charge is worthy of criminal lawyers who possess the expertise of a former prosecutor, so get backed by a firm that knows how the other side "plays the game" with regard to your rights and your freedom. We are committed to holding law enforcement accountable to how they prosecute your criminal charge. If they missed a step or failed to comply with Texas law in how they conducted their investigation that led to your arrest, we will defend you. Having worked both sides of the criminal justice system gives us an advantage over others. Exoneration, dismissals and not guilty verdicts are our goals.
If you have been served with divorce papers and want to know your rights, contact us today. Family law in Texas has very specific rules about what one can and cannot do with respect to the division of their property and their rights as parents after a divorce has been filed.
In your case, in addition to a divorce petition, you might have been served with a restraining order associated with a temporary hearing notice. The law allows for a temporary hearing shortly after a petition is filed to determine who "temporarily" possesses the children, and when, who lives in the home, how to handle bank accounts, who pays what bills, etc. It is not advisable to attend a temporary hearing without legal counsel.
After a marriage is dissolved, life goes on. Circumstances change, and sometimes the best interests of the children change. In order to amend a prior divorce decree to reflect such a change, a party must file a modification to the suit affecting the parent-child relationship. Often times this process also involves a temporary hearing to determine who "temporarily" can do what with respect to the children until there is a final hearing. Each case is unique and different than any other. Contact us today to answer questions about your case or to have a free case review of your potential modification.
Adoption can be blessing to all involved, but, the legal road to achieving an adoption is covered with pitfalls. In order to get your adoption done right, let us help. Some of our greatest moments as a law firm stem from representing families in an adoption. Our adoption experience includes representing families who voluntarily gave their rights to another family, and, when warranted, we have terminated parental rights of deadbeat parents who met the statutory guidelines for termination. For information about adoption, please contact us today.
