Q: I called another firm and the woman who answered wasn't sure who would handle my case. I want an experienced lawyer, not some kid, just out of school with his training wheels on. Who will handle my case at your firm?
A: When you hire Richard E. Zambon, as your criminal defense attorney, you get Richard E. Zambon. My name is on the door and all of my 30 years of experience is on your case.
Q: I had a court appointed attorney at my Arraignment. I think he is nice, but not knowledgable with regards to my problem. Can I hire you instead?
A: You are entitled to hire your own lawyer. Please call my office, 616-456-7831, and we can discuss the particulars of your case.
Q: I had a breathalyzer test and didn't do well. I was charged with DUI. What do I do now?
A: You definitely need legal counsel. This is something we can work with. Contact my office and we can schedule a meeting to work on a strategy for your case.
Q: My son is in jail. They said he can post bond, but I'm not sure what to do. Can you help.
A: Yes, I can help you through the process of paying the bond. We need to understand the charges and can then discuss your son's options.
Q: How do I know if I need a lawyer?
A: If you think you have a legal problem, it is usually best to contact a lawyer sooner rather than later. People often contact an attorney for advice and counsel. It is easier to prevent something from going wrong, than it is to try and undo it later. Usually you can't "un-ring the bell."
Q: What do I need to have at our first meeting?
A: Any documents or evidence that you have to support your side of the story are important. Tangible evidence is much better than a personal narration. Bring all documents giving by the arresting officer and/or from an arraignment. Bring any orders, judgements or subpoenas that you have received.
Q: I was convicted and shouldn't have been. Do you handle appeals?
A: Yes, we do handle appeals. Before committing to you, I will need to have information about your case. Please contact my office to set up an appointment to review your options.
