• How Much Will It Cost?

    44 views 2 months ago
    http://laniganpl.com/2017/0... (Winter Park, Florida) Experienced Florida attorneys Lanigan and Lanigan provide clients with extensive knowledge and courtroom skill in business and civil litigation.

    Eric Lanigan and Roddy Lanigan answer the number one question asked by clients: how much will it cost?

    The Lanigans will give you that answer and a clear estimate and apply an hourly rate so that you have some projections.

    The hourly rate varies by case. For example, if you have a highly complex securities losses case that's been going on for a long time vs. a Chapter 7 bankruptcy the fee structure will vary.

    For a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there will be a general cost to execute a normal, standard bankruptcy.

    But in the securities losses case, because there are many unknowns, there will be an hourly rate and a projected estimate provided to the client based on the number of hours expected to be involved.

    If you come in to have a contract written, there will be a cost based on the time it takes to write the contract. But if you have a breach of contract that requires a lawsuit, there's no way to know exactly what it will cost to resolve.

    Legal costs vary as any service does. So when the Lanigans explain that the legal cases cost as much as they’ll cost it’s because every case is different and there is NO way to know how a case will evolve or end.

    No amount of preparation, no amount of planning, knowing the law can predict how a judge and jury will respond to a case. There’s no slam dunk in legal situations.

    Any attorney who tells you that there is a sure and set fee for a case? Run from that office. You may certainly get a set hourly rate from a lawyer, but when a case begins, an estimate is the honest amount expected but it may change based on the twists and turns in the case.

    It’s like asking who’s going to win the game? Who’s going to win the fight? Well, unless the other side forfeits, or drops their gloves, you could be in for a long battle.

    If you’re wrong in a business action for something that you really did and all evidence points to that, will you negotiate and settle the case or will you fight it? Only you and your attorney working together may decide the direction and thus the costs involved.

    A lawyer cannot predict exact costs. This is why 99% of cases in Florida settle. The cost of a long legal battle in a courtroom is very expensive. The Lanigans are negotiators and mediators and in some cases the Lanigans will be able to mitigate losses. If a client has no chance in a lawsuit, the Lanigans will know and will be able to tell the client what the options are.

    Ultimately, the decision is made by the client. The Lanigans execute the case based on what a client wants to do knowing all the legal options available to them.

    Eric A. Lanigan and Roddy B. Lanigan have practiced law since 1976 and 2007, respectively. Together the Lanigans provide clients superior legal representation with a personal touch.

  • Can You Appeal Your Case in Florida Play all

    Can you appeal your case in Florida? Attorneys Roddy Lanigan and Eric Lanigan handle appeals for clients who want to dispute the court's decision in their case.

    An appeal DOES NOT ask a Florida Court of Appeal to consider new evidence in a case. You cannot submit new witnesses or add the lost documentation to prove your case.

    An appeal is only based ONLY upon the law and how a court applied the law in a case. You're disputing the Judge's decision based on the way the law was applied to your case. But this has to be taken as a case by a higher court, a Florida Court of Appeal. And the attorney bringing the case writes an appellate brief. An appeal is not handled in the typical courtroom manner.

    A lawyer presents a carefully constructed legal brief showing how the law was incorrectly applied in a case and shows the law or laws that should have been applied.

    An appellate attorney reviews court transcriptions, the entire case documentation and reviews it looking for the place where the law was applied incorrectly. Extensive research of case law must be performed.

    The Lanigans handle only white collar appeals which is a request by a losing party in a lawsuit or case asking a higher court to review a decision made in a lower court.

    The appeal may ask a higher court to review an already decided case to have a verdict, sentence or conviction changed. But for this to occur, there has to be an error made by the lower court as decided by the higher court based on the application of the law.

    In an appeal, one of four things may happen:
    1. The decision may stand
    2. The case may be ordered to be reversed and retried by a lower court
    3. The decision may be reversed and a higher court may render decision based on review
    4. The case may be returned to lower court for reconsideration and review of an issue

    The Lanigans will review court transcripts and documents and research the case because an appeal is based solely on the law and how it was applied by the court in your case. If you feel that you have a case that is worthy of an appeal, consult with the Lanigans.
