In today’s environment, many individuals and families have gone into financial duress through no fault of their own. Being unable to pay your monthly bills can cause sleepless nights, undue emotional stress, and confusion about how best to resolve a situation that will only worsen without taking action. The wrong thing to do is nothing. As a debt relief firm, we can review your financial situation, educate you on bankruptcy law and other debt relief methods, and advise you on how these solutions will affect you both in the short and long terms so that you can make an informed decision. With available options, you can determine what will work best for you that takes into consideration your needs and goals.
In the matter of personal injury and wrongful death, we are all too familiar with the devastating impact these can have on you and your family. You may be facing enormous losses in terms of medical bills, emotional trauma, loss of wages or the financial support of your deceased loved one, and more. When these losses and damages have been caused by the negligence, carelessness, or malice of another, you deserve compensation for what you have unjustly experienced. At Edwin M. Shorty, Jr. & Associates, we can be the tenacious ally you need in seeking the damages you deserve, especially when faced with insurance company tactics designed to pay you as little as possible.
Our firm provides you with a free initial consultation in which you can discuss your situation directly with an attorney. Convenient payment plans are available as well as same-day appointments.
