Charged with a crime? Going through a divorce? Seeking custody, modifications, or enforcement of child support? Injured through the fault or negligence of another? You need an experienced attorney to guide you through the legal maze, to fight for you!
If you are facing a divorce, seeking custody of your children, or wanting to modify child support, you need someone on your side to make sure you get a fair shake. Orders pertaining to such things can be very difficult to reverse, and it is best if your attorney can get you the most favorable ruling from the outset of the case to prevent a lengthy fight later on.
Child Custody and Visitation
Sometimes there are charges by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services of neglect or abuse. You need a qualified attorney to ensure that the social worker is forced to prove such allegations. There are many other considerations that come into play with custody matters, such as visitation rights and schedules, the rights and duties of each parent (such as where the child attends school or major medical decisions involving the child), who is responsible for the child's insurance, and where the child's primary residence will be, just to name a few. A good attorney can help you resolve these matters in your favor.
These cases often lead to brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, scarring, missed time from work or the inability to perform the work you were used to doing. In all cases, there are usually complex issues of fault and proof, large amounts of evidence to gather, and important nuances to submitting insurance claims that may affect any potential lawsuit you may have. You need experienced lawyers to handle these issues, or you may not get what you deserve.
After a serious personal injury, you are in physical and emotional pain from the trauma, and are often facing a long rehabilitation for your injuries. Yet despite just needing a time out from the stress of it all, the bills will arrive for all the medical treatment to repair your injuries and assist your recovery. That stress can often be too much. You need someone to help you coordinate your bills, treatment plan, and manage your case, so you can focus on healing.
Accidents happen. But what happens to you after you've been seriously injured in such an accident can vary, and to protect your rights and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve you need a good attorney. Whether it be a motor vehicle accident, medical malpractice, or wrongful death claim, the insurance company is not going to attempt to make you “whole” again, but instead they will offer you the smallest amount possible to make your claim go away, and if you accept that settlement you may be barred from asserting that claim ever again, even if it later turns out your injuries far outweigh what they paid you. Once you accept the offer it is finished. Done. If it turns out the money wasn't enough for your injuries you have no recourse. That is why it is vitally important to talk to an attorney before accepting any settlement.

For certain crimes, such as a DUI or an assault charge, a conviction may lead to enhanced penalties if you are charged with the same crime in the future, and as such demand that they be handled properly from the very beginning. Some crimes may affect things such as your ability to own a firearm, live in a certain place, and visit certain businesses or places. And many crimes require the use of experts in various fields in order to be properly prepared to handle the case. At The Cornett Law Firm, PSC, we will sometimes work with private investigators, psychiatrists, psychologists, medical specialists, experts at validating evidence, and technological specialists to gather evidence and build a strong case.
