Why Seek A Second Opinion?
There may be occasions after you have retained the services of an attorney when you would just feel more comfortable if you got a second opinion before making decisions that could be life changing. Perhaps it seems to you that your case is just dragging along with no apparent progress having been made. Sometimes you may feel that you are not receiving the kind of attention you deserve. Perhaps you want your case to be evaluated and assessed through the eyes of an attorney with more experience and more objectivity. Also, you may have a number of unanswered questions. You may want assurances that your case is being handled in a thorough and customary manner. You may want verification as to what the law requires and provides.
In these situations, it is not uncommon for clients to seek a second opinion about their case. Seeking a second opinion is not just accepted; it is often the wise thing to do.
Jeff Fishman provides opportunities for individuals to obtain a confidential second opinion before making decisions that can be life altering. If you choose to seek a second opinion from us, we will provide a confidential, in-depth consultation about the issues affecting you. It is our goal to help you gain a greater understanding of the law and we can help put your lawyer's actions into perspective.
Will Your Lawyer Be Angry If You Seek A Second Opinion?
No quality lawyer would object to a client seeking a second opinion. But, we do provide "confidential" in-depth second opinions. Thus, if you obtain a second opinion from our firm, your attorney will not know that you sought a second opinion unless you tell him or her about it. Confidential means confidential.
We believe that a client is more likely to obtain a valuable second opinion from an attorney who has a wealth of experience practicing the law. Jeff Fishman has been practicing law for over 25 years.
