Important Information You Should Know And Consider
Advocates Law Firm, LLC (ALF) is a private law firm with its main office located at 11 Franklin Square, New Britain, Connecticut. Attorney Ron Murphy is responsible for the contents of this website.
This website provides general information about our firm, our lawyers and staff, and the types of matters we handle. This website does not provide or constitute legal advice. Do not rely on this website to determine what you should or should not do with regard to your situation. Every injury claim; every malpractice claim; every accusation of misconduct is different. Before any lawyer could effectively advise or represent you, that lawyer would have to know the facts and circumstances of your specific situation.
If you or a loved one have been injured or accused, call a lawyer with experience handling such matters. If your situation involves an accident, injury, or malpractice claim; or an accusation of criminal misconduct in Connecticut or Massachusetts, you can call us and we will discuss your situation without charge or obligation.
Please do not, however, send us confidential information about you or your situation without first getting our permission. This rule is designed to protect your rights of privacy and confidentiality. You might lose those rights if you send unsolicited information to anyone--including a lawyer.
Please understand that visiting our website or sending us an email or using our contact form does not create an attorney-client relationship between us. Before we would have any obligation to represent you or to take any action on your behalf, you would have to sign a written agreement for legal services that spells out the details of our relationship, including what you have retained us to do.
Hiring a lawyer is an important decision. You should not do so based solely on the contents of a website. You should ask questions about the lawyers' experience, qualifications, and resources. You should feel comfortable and confident in your decision. We would be glad to answer your questions about our experience, qualifications, and resources. And while we are proud of our many successful results for our clients since 1983, past success is no guarantee that a similar result can be achieved in your case. No lawyer can guarantee a result. Each case is different. In fact, if any lawyer guarantees you a result, you probably shouldn't hire that lawyer as he or she is just feeding you a line to get your case.
All Connecticut and Massachusetts injury, accident, or malpractice claims must be filed in court before the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations or else it will be thrown out of court. Also, some claims require that notice be given to a potential defendant within a period of time that is shorter than the statute of limitations. Exactly what statute of limitations or notice requirements apply to a particular claim or whether there are exceptions that might save a claim that otherwise might appear to be time-barred, depends on the jurisdiction, the type of claim, and the facts of the claim. Therefore, if you or someone close to you has been injured by accident or malpractice, you should consult with an experienced injury, accident, or malpractice attorney in Connecticut or Massachusetts as soon as possible so that he or she can protect your rights.
Finally, please understand that the law can change often. In fact, it may have changed since we last updated this website. This is just one more reason why you should not rely on any website to determine what you should or should not do with regard to your situation.
If you have been injured by accident or malpractice; or if you have been accused of criminal or professional misconduct, call us for a free initial consultation. There is no charge or obligation for the call.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this information, or if you have any suggestions as to how we can improve this website or the information on this page, please call Attorney Ron Murphy.
