Scheduling a Consultation
When you schedule a consultation with our office, you get an actual discussion. An attorney will meet with you, carefully review the facts of your case, spend the time to listen to your legal problems and needs, and offer smart solutions. We also believe in educating our clients. That means we are always comfortable explaining why we make specific recommendations, and how they fit into the law and your facts. Our consultations typically take one to two hours.
So, we do charge for consultations. The cost of most consultations ranges from $200-$700 dollars, depending on the case. Our consultations typically range from one to two hours and also include the time we spend reviewing the materials and intake you provide before the meeting. We credit the cost of the consultation if you hire us within seven days of the consultation date. This method has worked well for us since the practice started in 2011. We believe it shows in the referrals we receive from past clients, retired judges, practicing attorneys, financial advisors, Certified Public Accountants, and many other people and professionals. We have even received referrals from attorneys we were on the other side of in past cases.
Client Reviews & Testimonials
Sean was recommended by Fidelity Financial and is convenient to our home. His office replied within 24 hours of initial email. The consultation went very smoothly. We were already quite familiar with estate plans and had some rather specific questions he addressed immediately. We quickly recognized Sean was uniquely qualified to provide our estate plan. His associate, Kenzie, was very helpful with timely communication and regular follow-up. This will be a long-term relationship.

Sean Nichols and his assistant Kensie did an excellent job supporting my elderly Father. They created a complete estate plan in a very timely fashion that required very little of my father's time/effort or mine for that matter. They were both a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Sean Nichols and Kenzie Griffin were very professional, asked questions and were patient with all our questions. They put together all the necessary estate planning documents that fit our needs. They met their appointment times and all expected timing for document preparation, recording and delivery. Overall, it was a great experience dealing with Sean and Kenzie. Thank you!
