The Affolter Gannon law firm is uniquely suited to fight for the rights of victims injured in accidents because Mike Gannon and Dick Affolter used to be among Vermont's premiere insurance defense lawyers.

In fact, Mike and Dick received awards from insurance companies and were asked to instruct their adjusters how to handle legal issues. A little more than ten years ago, AG made the decision to "switch teams" and to represent injured claimants who are being treated unfairly by insurance companies. We...

I often hear from friends that they would love to have a lawyer review a contract for them, or advise them on some issue, but they can’t afford it. I often retort that they may not be able to afford not to hire an attorney. I am not being flip when I say this, because it is my experience that many of those people end up calling me after they’ve already suffered the consequences of their decision to forgo legal representation. However, this does little to address the underlying problem. That is, that many cannot afford the...

Need a lawyer?

The Justia Lawyer Directory is a listing of lawyers, legal aid organizations, and pro bono legal service organizations. Whether you were injured, are accused of a crime, or are merely engaging in everyday affairs that affect your legal rights or property, an attorney can help you resolve problems or prevent new ones from arising.

Here are just a few situations where you might want to seek the advice of an attorney:

  • You were injured in a car or truck accident
  • You have been arrested and charged with a crime, such as DUI or shoplifting
  • You are considering separating from your spouse
  • You have been subjected to harassment or other discrimination at work

Use Justia to research and compare attorneys so that you can make an informed decision when you hire your counsel.

It is important to research an attorney before hiring him or her. Be sure to evaluate an attorney's experience (types of cases handled, prior results obtained, etc.). Although prior results are not indicative of the likelihood of success in your case, they can help you make an informed decision.

Also worth serious consideration is the attorney's location, particularly if you will be traveling to visit him or her for consultations.

Finally, research an attorney to see whether he or she has ever been subject to discipline. Although disciplinary actions do not necessarily impact the attorney's competence to handle your case, they may affect your decision whether to hire.
