Frequently Asked Questions
Can I afford an Attorney?
There are resources available for all people to help you navigate the legal system at a price you can afford. Whether you can afford an attorney depends on what kind of case you have. If you have a personal injury case many lawyers wont require you to pay anything unless the lawyer can recover something for you.

Can I expunge my Oregon criminal record?
Oregon law allows expunction of arrest records if there was no prosecution, and convictions. Eligibility for expunction is based on: (1) The number of offenses you have been arrested for or convicted of, (2) the level and type of offense, (3) The length of time that has passed since arrest or conviction. If you want your record expunged Contact Hunking Law, LLC for a free eligibility screening.
I was injured, but I received a settlement offer from the insurance company of the person that injured me, should I accept it?
Insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. They are companies, and like any company they try to maximize profits and minimize losses. If you have been injured and it is covered by the policy issued by an insurance company then you are a liability to the company. Their goal will be to minimize their losses, which means they will try to pay you as little as you will take to remove their liability. You should not accept a settlement without at least discussing it with an attorney.
