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.
