Frequently asked questions

  • What Types of Cases Does Your Law Firm Handle?
    We handle personal injury cases such as car accidents, slip and falls, etc., along with civil rights violations and other major civil litigation such as employment discrimination and harassment, racial discrimination, police brutality, and other such cases.
  • Who Is Working On My Case?
    Our clients are entitled to know who is working on their case and that their case is being personally handled internally. At PK Law Group, you will personally meet the lawyer working on your case, and you can call that lawyer at any time regarding your case.
  • How Can I Get Updates On My Case?
    PK Law Group values client communication and transparency. We take pride in great attorney-client relationships and we emphasize regular communication. We have a 24-hour return policy, where any unanswered phone call or email will be returned within one day. While we will zealously push to settle your case, some cases take several months, or years, to be resolved. Throughout that time, you will receive a copy of every letter that we receive and send out. If we have filed a lawsuit on your case, you will receive a copy of every pleading that is filed. You deserve to know exactly what is going on with your case, and we are 100% committed to this approach.
  • Will I Have to Go to Court?
    There is no way for us to determine whether your case will result in settlement prior to trial until we are further into the process. In our experience, only about 30% of cases go all the way to a trial, with the majority settling somewhere along the way. Once we are more familiar with your case and have communicated at length with the opposing party, we will be able to give you more of an idea whether your matter will end with a settlement or whether it will require a full trial and jury verdict. Our attorneys will handle all case management and status conferences, so if you do have to go to court it would only be for the trial, if that is how your case progresses.
  • What Should I Have On Hand For My Consultation?
    You should have dates and other basic information, any medical and billing records, and diagnostic and treatment information. You should also have a basic idea of the amount of money you are out due to the injury or injustice and a working idea of the amount of monetary compensation you would need to consider yourself made whole.
  • How Much is My Claim Worth?
    Much like the question about whether your case will end up in court or not, it is exceedingly difficult to determine in advance how much your claim is worth. While we may be able to give you a basic and broad idea of the value of your claim based upon previous experience and recent jury awards, each case is different and it is impossible to compare any one matter to another on a side-by-side basis. Every case’s facts are different, and every case’s value is based upon numerous factors that are impossible to simply review and use to make a solid determination. The more we investigate your particular claim, the better equipped we will be to discuss the specific value of your claim with you.
  • What is the Cost?
    A free consultation is a "free" consultation. You will never have to bring any money to speak to us about your case. We will speak with you about your accident or legal matter for free and not force you into signing a contract with our firm. You are entitled to know your rights prior to committing to a contract.
  • How Do I Pay The Legal Fees?
    At PK Law Group, our contracts provide that you will not have to pay any attorney's fees at any point, unless we successfully win or settle your case. If there is no settlement or no jury verdict in your favor, you do not owe attorney's fees.
