We set aside time every week to talk with potential clients. During these initial conversations, we’ll have an honest dialogue with you about whether and how we can help.
What does it cost?
There’s no charge for an initial phone appointment just to see if we’re a good fit. You can request an appointment by using the link below, emailing or calling us. We’ll need some basic information such as your name, who else is involved and what you’re looking to do. This allows us to run a quick conflicts check and determine whether you might actually need another type of lawyer. For example, we don’t usually take contingency matters. Your information will always be kept confidential, regardless of whether you hire us, and will allow us to schedule and prepare for your call.
An initial phone appointment takes about 15 minutes. We’ll answer general questions about our office, our background and experience, the types of legal services that we can provide and whether those services are offered on an hourly rate with a retainer or as a flat fee.
We charge a one-hour consultation fee if you’d like to discuss one or more specific matters or questions, and get an evaluation of, or assistance with, your situation. We prefer to do initial consultations in person at our office, but if your schedule doesn’t permit or you’re not in our area, we’re also available by phone or video call.
How soon can we chat?
We typically accommodate requests within a few days. You can set up an initial phone appointment or hour consultation yourself for any available date/time on our calendar by clicking one of the buttons below.
You can also call 818.276.6780 or email email@example.com. Please remember to include the names of all parties and a brief description of what you need. We’ll call you at the appointment time. Initial appointments are available by phone only. For hour consultations, please also include whether you’d like to meet in person at our office, by phone or Skype.
Payment Options & Timing
Consultations may be arranged with either cash, check, Zelle for business, Visa or MasterCard. All payments are due prior to the start of the consultation. Cancellations of consultations on less than 24 hours’ notice will only be rescheduled upon prepayment to confirm another time slot.
If you decide that we’re a good fit for your needs, representation begins only after you’ve signed a written fee agreement and paid either a retainer or flat fee, depending upon the matter. Email, calls or booking requests for initial phone appointments or consultations do not create an attorney-client relationship. Please do not send unsolicited documents. We do not open unsolicited documents nor do they create an attorney-client relationship.
Thank you for contacting our office and we look forward to working with you.
