Ballwin Constitutional Law Information

Were Your Constitutional Law Rights Violated?

Constitutional Law is a very broad and complex area of the law that is often evolving. Constitutional law attorneys defend the rights of citizens based on the US Constitution and its interpretations. If your constitutional rights were violated, you will need a skilled Ballwin constitutional law attorney to help you.

Types of Constitutional Law Violations

Under the US Constitution and its amendments we are awareded certain rights such as, protection against unreasonable search and seizure, a right to a speedy trial and the right to confront witnesses in a criminal case. There are also the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of press and much more. It is best to contact an attorney in your area who practices constitutional law should you have any legal questions.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
