"If you choose the Viner Law Firm, you're not with me - you're with US" 

 - Thomas J. Viner


Facing any legal situation can be a daunting experience but Tom and his team made sure to walk me through what we were dealing with and what we were doing about it, thoroughly. It was also very easy and painless getting in contact and game planning with them throughout the entire process. I definitely would recommend the Viner Lam Firm to any and all friends and family.

We were in need of an attorney quickly one weekend and contacted Tom Viner and he was immediately engaged and helped us through a tough day. We hired him on the spot and never once did he ever not follow through and give us the best advice. We spent approximately two years going through a jury trial and he was the most compassionate, eloquent and intelligent attorney we could have asked for. He knows where to be and what to do at the right time. I can't say enough kind words to describe him and would recommend him to anyone going through a difficult situation. He knows how to get the job done!

What is a flat fee and how is it different than other types of lawyer fees?

Flat fee is a set amount instead of an unknown ongoing fee.  We offer flat fees in our criminal cases.


How long does a case take?

It depends on the type of case and the facts.  In a criminal case, it is easier to predict.  In a Family Law case there is a great variance in time from case to case, and any case can end on any day.  Agreements are the quickest way to finality.


Do criminal cases always go to trial?
