The founders of our law firm started our practice back in 1896, giving our personal injury lawyers a legacy. With each passing generation, we have represented people from all walks of life.

What Practice Areas Do Our Chico Attorneys Handle?

At Peters, Habib, McKenna, Juhl-Rhodes & Cardoza, LLP, we defend the victims of personal injuries. However, these are not the only cases we have taken on at our firm. When there have been property disputes over easements, rights of way, and encroachments, we have helped clients face these issues head on. We also have experience helping not only cities, but also law enforcement officials and government employees.

Injuries from these crashes can be devastating, resulting in chronic pain, disfigurement, and even death. Representing these victims is another responsibility that the personal injury attorneys at Peter, Habib, McKenna, Juhl-Rhodes & Cardoza, LLP take to heart.

Do I Really Need a Lawyer?

When faced with legal problems, there are a few questions that you need to ask yourself:

  • Will I be able to represent myself?
  • Do I know enough about the law to represent myself?
  • What are the consequences if I represent myself and fail?

Many people neglect to consider these questions when they decide not to acquire the services of a trained attorney. Then, it is that lack of consideration that wreaks havoc on their lives. Here is what an experienced attorney can offer you:

  • Training – An attorney has years of training in the law. That training means they know what laws may apply to your case, and which ones do not. This will help focus your case and make it stronger.
  • Experience – Like any place of business, the courtroom functions in a certain way. Proper documents must be filed, and evidence must be shared with your opponent. The judge and opposing counsel must be addressed properly, and every judge has their own way of running their courtroom. If you are not familiar with these methods, then it can delay your case, and give your opponent an advantage over you.
  • Focus – An attorney with training and experience will be solely focused on your case. If you are injured, you will have to attend to your own medical needs, which will keep you from concentrating on your case. Your job and bills will also steal your focus, keeping you from devoting the time your case needs. If your knowledge of the law is limited, then you will also need to study, which takes even more time. However, a lawyer can shoulder much of this burden for you.
