5 Questions to Ask a Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer in Fontana CA

If you are facing charges of nursing home abuse then there is no question you need the best nursing home abuse lawyer in Fontana CA. At Chambers Law Firm, we are dedicated to ensuring that every client we work with has the aggressive defense they deserve. Keep reading to learn the five questions we recommend you ask during your consultation and then contact us at 855-397-0210 to begin the process.

  1. Am I Facing a Felony or a Misdemeanor?
  2. Nursing home abuse is a wobbler offense, which means it can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Note that the District Attorney can change the charge against you – even after you have been arraigned. If there is a reason that you have been arrested for this crime, talking honestly about it within Attorney Chambers is your best chance of finding out what your final charge is likely to be.

  3. What Are My Defense Options?
  4. While the nursing home abuse lawyer in Fontana CA you work with may not be able to give you the exact defense option they will use for your case, they can offer insight into the options. For example, the best defense may be that you acted accidentally and lacked the intent required for this charge.

  5. Should I Talk to the Police?
  6. Your nursing home abuse lawyer in Fontana CA is not likely to recommend that you talk to the police without your lawyer present. However, when it is time to work with the police we can talk to you about what to say and what not to say. We will also be at the interview so that we can stop it at any time or answer any questions you have. You have the right counsel – use it.

  7. What Will This Mean for My Job?
  8. If you work in a nursing home or other similar facility, then this charge can be more than criminal – it could ruin your life. We know that your job will be a big concern for you, but we strongly suggest that you focus only on the criminal charge in front of you. Once that is done, you can determine what steps need to be taken to clean up your reputation.

  9. How Much Does a Consultation Cost?
  10. The answer to this should be $0.00. Work with an attorney who offers a free consultation so you will have a chance to determine if they are the right nursing home abuse lawyer in Fontana CA. At Chambers Law Firm we are standing by to answer your basic questions about these cases. Call us now at 855-397-0210 and we can get started.
