Frequently asked general questions

Do I need a lawyer?

If you need disability benefits and have been denied those benefits – yes, you need an attorney. John V. Tucker has been representing those taken advantage of by insurance companies and government benefit programs for over 24 years, and we can help you, too. Contact us today—our first conversation about your case is free of charge.

What questions should I ask to choose the right attorney?

An initial consultation is an opportunity to see if you have a legal claim, but also to interview your potential attorney. Ask questions about the lawyer’s:

  • Experience. How long has s/he been practicing law?
  • Areas of practice. What legal problems does s/he have experience in?
  • Staff. Who else will I deal with during the course of my case?
  • References. Have past clients been happy with their legal service? Are testimonials available?
  • Method of resolution. Does s/he favor mediation, alternate dispute resolution, settlements, or going to trial?
  • Results. Has the firm been successful with cases like yours in the past?

John V. Tucker is always open to these conversations with potential clients. At our Tampa Bay law firm, this initial consultation is free.
