Why should I hire a Lawyer?

When searching for a lawyer, you may wonder if you even need an attorney. It is important to ask yourself... for something this important, is it smart to try to go it alone? Virgen & Virgen Attorneys at Law of San Antonio, Texas know the pros and cons of hiring an attorney.

Pros:
-I will have someone on my side fighting for me and looking out for my best interest. I will not have to worry about the system not working for me if I do not comply with the current laws and procedures.

-My lawyer will handle all matters relating to my case. With my attorney taking care of the paperwork nightmare and other related issues pertaining to my case, I will be able to concentrate on my every day life and my family.

-I can get rid of my stress because I will have someone to stand up for me against the government and its beaurocracy.

Cons:
-As with any professional, my doctor, my dentist, and even my mechanic, my attorney will have to be paid. But, I know that Virgen & Virgen will be fair with me regarding its Attorney's fees. It is better to pay for good legal representation than to be left wondering if my case will turn out alright.

What do I do if I have a legal question on a different matter than any pending case?


A phone call to our office will direct you to the person who can best answer your question. Remember, no questions as to your rights, duties or obligations should go unanswered because you did not know which lawyer to call. We have a great network of Attorney colleagues whom we can turn to in order to possibly refer your case out if you are calling us regarding an area of the law that we are not focusing on. Let us be your first point of contact pertaining to all legal matters.

 

What can you expect of us?

We will handle your case on a one to one basis, that is, you will have direct contact with the attorneys and will not have to be concerned with your case being lost in the shuffle of a large firm with many paralegals and constantly changing personnel.

What about special office hours?

While we encourage our clients to make appointment to visit our office, we do always welcome walk in clients but caution you that you may have to wait a while to see us if you arrive without a set appointment. We would prefer that you schedule your appointment regarding our regular office hours (Monday thru Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm), however, from time to time you may request that we meet you in the evening if the matter cannot wait or perhaps on a Saturday. While we do not encourage these “special visits,” we may arrange them where necessary.

How will I be kept informed of my case?

We understand the importance of communication and transparency between attorney and client. Although we would like to talk to you weekly by telephone, that would be neither practical nor productive. Legal matters have a way of stretching out over long periods of time. To you, it may often seem like ages have gone by without activity, however, in fact, much behind-the-scenes work is being completed so that on the day your matter is ready, nothing will be overlooked. In order to keep the cost of legal services down while maximizing communications, we will strive to keep you informed when anything important happens and to respond to your questions in a reasonable time. In addition, we will inform you when your presence is required. At any rate please know that as your Attorney’s we certainly welcome your ocassional phone call in order to update on your case.
