Frequently Asked Questions
Every legal matter is unique, and at The Law Offices of Neil J. Cacali we pride ourselves on the individualized attention we provide to each of our clients. That said, we do hear certain questions often enough that we have provided both the questions and their answers below. If you have a question that isn’t answered below, please don’t hesitate to contact our office and ask.
Q: What do I need to do if I am being sued?
A: If you are the target of a civil lawsuit, it is important to secure experienced legal representation as soon as possible in order to defend against a legal lawsuit or assert your rights in court. As experienced litigators, The Law Offices of Neil J. Cacali, will help you assess the strength of the case against you, and we will work with you to create a legal strategy tailored to your unique needs. Because we have represented both plaintiffs and defendants, we have a clear sense of the strategies used by both sides, and we will use this experience to help you achieve the best outcome available in your case.
Q: I am thinking about estate planning but I don’t know where to start. What should I do?
A: Estate planning can take many forms, depending on the specific needs of the person doing the planning. If you are thinking of doing some planning for your future, the first step is to speak with an attorney who can help you connect your goals with the proper legal mechanisms. Perhaps you already have a will but want to revise it, or you want to skip the will for now and create an advance medical directive to spell out your preferences for medical care in the event that you are someday incapacitated. At The Law Offices of Neil J. Cacali, we can help you cut through the many confusing options to find the plan that works best for you.
Q: I want to form an LLC. Do I need to hire a lawyer?
A: As with many transactional legal matters, the value that an attorney offers goes far beyond simply filing the paperwork. At The Law Offices of Neil J. Cacali, we will guide you through the process of forming a business entity from start to finish. We will help you assess your exact needs and determine which type of entity is right for you, whether it is an LLC, a Corporation or other business structure. We will also use our experience and professional network to get your paperwork approved as quickly as possible.
