Shannon and Tim Snedaker of Snedaker Law – the Lake Mary-based personal injury law firm – work hard to relay solid information and clear up misconceptions for their clients about complex legal cases. Occasionally, they also must clear up the misconception that the two of them are married. In fact, Shannon is married to Tim’s brother Rob. That makes Shannon and Tim partners-in-law in more ways than one!
“Tim and Rob also look a lot alike,” Shannon quips, which makes the fun family dynamic of this law firm even more entertaining.
But don’t let it fool you. Tim and Shannon deliver quality legal advice and representation with a serious commitment to get their clients results. With an experienced team behind them, Snedaker Law offers free consultations to help those who’ve been injured through no fault of their own get guidance without obligation.
During those free consultations, members of the community can get honest answers to tough questions about automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, or medical malpractice scenarios – all at no charge.
Sometimes, Tim says, that means telling a potential client they don’t need to hire an attorney at all.
“In some cases, the insurance company may have paid out as much as that client will possibly get,” he explains. “We’ll do a complimentary evaluation for them but may advise that they not engage us. There is a presumption out there that personal injury attorneys are in it for the money, but our focus is on what our clients need.
Shannon and Tim work hard to educate the community. Here are some frequent misconceptions they see:
An injured person’s belief that they don’t need a lawyer. “They can sometimes get taken advantage of by the insurance company and settle a case for much, much less than they’re entitled to,” says Shannon.
An injured person’s assumption their insurance company will treat them right. Some clients have had the same insurance company for decades without ever filing a claim, says Shannon. They are often shocked when their claim is denied.
The belief that an injured party must pay upfront for legal representation. “We don’t get paid until you get paid,” says Tim.
