AREAS OF PRACTICE FOR KETTERING DELLIGATTI LAW OFFICES
CRIMINAL & JUVENILE DEFENSE
Criminal defense is important for protecting your rights in North-Central WV, even for minor offenses. It is important to understand the impact of a criminal record that might last a lifetime. Juveniles and adults, both, need to understand the consequences of waiving the right to a speedy trial, or signing documents before the first court date.
Having an attorney early in the case may increase the chances that the State Attorney’s Office drops or reduces the charges filed, or allows our client the opportunity to enter an appropriate diversion program. Depending on the severity of the charges, these diversion programs can vary widely, and an attorney can offer the best advice of whether a particular program is in your best interest.
ESTATE PLANNING ATTORNEY
Do you have an estate plan in place? If you do, chances are that your life has changed since it was created. If you do not, having the proper will and trust documents in place assures you and your family peace of mind in the event of death.
Request a consultation from a Kettering Delligatti Law Offices attorney who can advise you on the estate planning process. Whether you need to plan, or would like to file an amendment to an existing document, it is important to consult with one of our attorneys in North-Central WV.
ABUSE & NEGLECT ATTORNEY
Senior citizens and persons with disabilities in North-Central WV who live in care homes can suffer the unfortunate abuse and neglect that comes with impersonal staff that may be inadequately trained. The national statistics on abuse and neglect, especially for seniors, are not uncommon in nursing homes nationwide. Even one incident of abuse and neglect is one too many, so having an experienced abuse and neglect attorney can help protect the rights of seniors and disabled persons who require on-going care.
Many of these people may be so ill or incapacitated that they may not have the physical or mental capacity to communicate with others about the abuse or neglect that occurs. There are state laws in place that protect these most vulnerable residents. Reporting abuse situations promptly is critical in filing a claim for medical expenses, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and aggravating pre-existing conditions.
