Family Law & Divorce

Divorce, custody disagreements, child support issues, and alimony conflicts are difficult to manage. No matter the need, or which side of the fence you are on, Brandon Legal Group will enthusiastically represent you.

A personal approach provides you with crucial details that could prove to be the difference in your negotiation or litigation.

Having an aggressive, yet caring attorney on your side in court is critical in protecting your family.

Personal Injury

When you’ve been injured, and the deck appears stacked against you, a dedicated Personal Injury Attorney will ensure that you have someone on your side who can navigate the legal system and protect your rights.

Insurance companies that protect business and vehicle owners from Personal Injury claims do not get wealthy by looking out for the injured.

Your Personal Injury Attorney is there to level the playing field, and to protect your rights to medical treatment, and fair compensation for your injuries.

DUI/BUI Defense

Despite the many avenues of getting home after a night out on the town, few of us take advantage of these and make the mistake of getting behind the wheel. Getting pulled over for DUI/DWI can have far reaching effects on your life.

Attempting to handle incarceration on your own could be your second mistake. The intricacies of the legal wrangling in a DUI/DWI case are difficult for most to understand and navigate without the aid of experienced legal counsel.

Criminal Defense

When you, or a loved one, find oneself dealing with criminal prosecution, there is no room for error. Do not assume you know and understand the intricacies of the law based on something you read online or saw on a TV show.

Whether you are facing juvenile crimes, drug related crimes, domestic crimes, or any other criminal action, compassionate and aggressive legal support could make the difference between incarceration, innocence, expungement, or any point in between.

Case Study: Because legal issues rarely stand their own

A client of ours, a retired Air Force officer, came to the office needing advice on a divorce.  

While speaking with the attorney, he discovered that he was potentially eligible for veterans disability benefits.  

Because Brandon Legal Group covers several areas of law, we were able to offer additional legal advice to the client. 

Other firms that practice in only one area, may not have been aware of his veterans benefit potential.

Once the divorce concluded, our client needed to have his will revised. Brandon Legal Group was able to assist with this as well.

All his legal needs were served at one location – Brandon Legal Group, PllC.

Debunking Attorney Myths

It’s too expensive to call an attorney.

At Brandon Legal Group, your initial consultation is free. Personal Injury cases are offered on a contingency fee basis meaning there are no out of pocket expenses unless there is a financial recovery in your favor. In other matters, if you think an attorney representing you is too expensive, imagine living without seeing your children or spending the next 10 years in prison…

Having an attorney makes you look guilty.

You may be great at a lot of things, but when is the last time you were lead counsel in a criminal matter? Every individual has a constitutional right to experienced legal counsel no matter the magnitude of the matter. In many instances, the Court may prefer working with experienced counsel rather than a layman as all litigating parties will be held to the same legal standard and process.

Lawyers just complicate the process.

Experienced attorneys should foresee pitfalls in your case and reduce the chances of last-second surprises that delay or disrupt the finalization of your legal matter. Attorneys know the process, know the nuances of varying judges courtrooms, and can provide you with the proper resources to make the best decisions in your matter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Brandon Legal Group FAQ 1

Possibly. Some courts will divorce parties without a hearing if a settlement is agreed upon. Some courts need a brief, uncontested hearing with just the petitioner. If you can’t agree, you’ll need a court hearing. Court can be expensive, especially if one side is granted the other’s attorney’s costs. “On the courthouse steps” agreements are common. The cost of going to court shouldn’t determine whether to settle or go to court.

Brandon Legal Group FAQ 2

You can’t deny visitation because you dislike your ex. You can ask the court to amend your divorce’s visitation conditions if you believe your ex-spouse is harmful to your children. A divorce attorney can help.
