The number one question I'm asked is "do I need an attorney?". I'm not a lawyer and I can't give you legal advice, so ultimately, that's your decision. I can tell you, from what I'm told by clients, most of them believe they settle quicker and for close to the same amount as if they used an attorney. The biggest difference is they get to keep 100% of the claim instead of giving up 30-50%. Attorneys know that most Diminished Value claims settle quickly, that's why they're so interested in signing you for a 40% commission. 40% of $3000 is $1200., and most of the time for sending a simple demand letter.
