FAQ

Appointments and talking to attorneys:

-The majority of The Attorney’s day is spent in court addressing the needs of clients.  If you desire to retain the office or speak with the Attorney it will be necessary for you to schedule an appointment.  Legal Assistants may be able to answer some questions; however, any question that cannot be answered by them will require an appointment with an Attorney.

Where is the office located?

The office is located at 3219 Landmark Street, Unit 8.  Across the street from the Wal-Mart Store located on Greenville Blvd.

Fees

-Fees vary depending on the type of case.  To determine the fee for your matter, schedule an appointment with an Attorney.  At the appointment bring in all the documentation you have to enable the attorney to full assess your matter.

Do I need to have a lawyer present to represent me?

The Short answer is No.  The judicial system is very complicated and unless you are extremely knowledgeable in the workings of the system it is advisable to seek the assistance of an attorney.  The Clemons Law Firm has often times had to fix mistakes made by individuals seeking to “save money” by handling their matters themselves.  Do it right the first time and consider hiring an attorney for your matter.

When is my court date?

The office will contact you in regards to your court date when the office is retained.  It is your responsibility to remember this date.  However, many court dates can be found on the administrative offices of the courts website at
