What Should You Expect?
When you contact Powers & Santola, LLP, about your case, we will provide you with a free consultation through one of our offices in Albany, Syracuse or Rochester. We will want to know what happened to you. You can learn more about us, too. We want you to feel free to ask as many questions as you have about your rights and legal options.
If we agree to work together, we will handle all aspects of your case. We will gather evidence of the accident or other event that harmed you. We will also collect and study your medical records. We may consult with doctors, accident reconstruction experts and other knowledgeable professionals about your case as well. You can count on us to identify all responsible parties and all available sources of compensation for you.
We accept a limited number of cases. We do that so we can devote the full extent of our resources and attention to each client we serve. Throughout your case, we will advise you of any settlement offers. At the same time, we will meticulously prepare your case for trial. If a trial is necessary, we will be ready to fight for you.
We typically represent personal injury clients on a contingency fee basis. In other words, if we obtain a financial recovery for you, our payment will reflect an agreed-upon percentage of your award. We will also deduct the costs of pursuing your case. If we don’t secure a settlement or verdict on your behalf, you will owe us nothing. It’s that simple.
