Frequently Asked Questions

We understand the importance of choosing the right lawyer. We invite you to explore the breadth and depth of our capabilities.

Most legal situations require the assistance of an experienced lawyers, but it does all depend on the circumstances of each case.  Prudent practice generally dictates that individuals should not engage in self-representation except in relatively minor matters.  The best thing you can do is to consult with an attorney who will inform you at the outset whether it is worth your while to obtain legal assistance and/or pursue legal action.  If you are unlikely to prevail, or the benefits of obtaining a lawyer do not clearly outweigh the costs, you should probably not incur the unnecessary expense.   However, if the issue is serious or you have a fair chance at prevailing, you would seriously consider having an experienced attorney advocate for you.  Lastly, before making the decision to represent yourself, you should know that

self-represented individuals are usually held to the same legal standards as attorneys.  This means that if they fail to follow court rules and regulations, they are subject to litigation sanctions (consequences), and the excuse that they are not legally trained may fall on deaf ears.  The legal process can be complex and intimidating.  Let one of our attorneys help you balance the cost and benefit of representation.

Unlike some firms, we provide valuable service during our consultations.  Not only do we listen to your legal issue, we describe the legal process to you, evaluate your case and offer you an honest, upfront opinion of the likely outcome, and answer any questions you may have.  After walking out of your consultation, you should know what your next step will be.

We heavily discount our attorneys’ hourly rates so that we can provide affordable consultations for $100.  This is more than a time to “interview” us.  We will provide you with substantive, helpful information so you can make your next move with confidence.

The length of a case, from the initial consultation and filing the initial documents through to the resolution of the case by settlement, court order, or jury verdict, depends on several variables.  For this reason, it is not possible to say exactly how long a case may take.  Most courts can move pretty quickly if matters are settled and not contested, for example, the case may be resolved in 90 days.  If matters are unresolved, and experts are required, cases can exceed a year.  

Skulborstad Legal Group takes a team approach at handling your case.  You, as the client, will be a part of that team, as we work towards an award and satisfying outcome for you.  The firm is fortunate to have a hard-working, competent staff of individuals to assist you in achieving the best results. At the same time, if there is ever a time where you wish to speak with your lead attorney and not support staff, just say the words and you got it.

At the onset of our representative, you will be provided with the name and contact information of your lead attorney and paralegal.  We will routinely keep you informed of significant developments in your case, we will explain your options and what to expect at every step, and we will take any action necessary to ensure that your legal rights are fully assessed and protected – researching the law, interviewing witnesses, collecting records, conferring with experts, planning legal strategy, preparing and filing necessary paperwork, and negotiating – all with an eye towards ensuring your best possible outcome.  We also encourage you to contact us by telephone or e-mail at any time with any questions.

Yes. Colorado has time limits to formally file a lawsuit or claim.  The law that limits the time frame you have to file your lawsuit or claim is called the “statute of limitations.”  The statute of limitations varies depending on the type of case you wish to bring.  Therefore, it is important that you contact us, or any lawyer, as soon as possible after you have been harmed so you do not miss this deadline.  In the event you miss the statute of limitations deadline, there is a good chance you will be prohibited from any recovery.
