What if I want legal advice?
As for legal advice, I certainly do offer it, but not through this site. I don’t know of any lawyers who offer legal advice through their website or blog. You shouldn’t take anything you read on the internet to be legal advice.
The discussions you see here aren’t any different from reading a newspaper or magazine article by a lawyer or watching a lawyer on a television show talk about a case. I might write about a legal issue relevant to your situation, but professional legal advice requires an in-depth discussion with you about your case, a thorough investigation into all the relevant facts, and substantial research into the relevant laws.
If you think you have a case, I’m happy to review your situation free of charge. You can call, write, or email me at the following:
Richard D. Vetstein, Esq.
Vetstein Law Group, P.C.
223 Walnut Street, Suite 26 | Framingham | MA | 01702
Most importantly, if you think you have a case, contact a lawyer as soon as you can! There are all kinds of time restrictions that can affect your legal rights if you don’t act soon enough.
How do I find a lawyer?
You can ask me; if for whatever reason I don’t take your case, I’m happy to refer you to other experienced attorneys that I know and trust to handle cases diligently and competently.
The standard advice is: ask the people you know! Do you know anyone else who had a similar situation? Ask them who they hired, and what they liked/disliked about their lawyer. Do you trust the opinion of, say, your accountant or financial planner or banker? Do you know your local politicians? Professionals and politicians frequently work with lawyers, and they’ll likely know a lawyer who can help you, or at least a lawyer who knows a lawyer who can help you.
You can contact the Massachusetts Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service. I take cases from the MBA and they are a great referral source.
