Generally, we try to schedule appointments from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. most days. However, we can schedule appointments in the evenings if necessary. We try to be flexible and sensitive to the needs of our clients and potential clients.
We charge a flat rate of $250 for initial consultations. In general, our initial consultations last about an hour. During our initial consultation, we go over the basics of your case, the facts, the legal issues, potential next steps and the costs involved of retaining counsel. The initial consultation is an opportunity for you to meet the attorney, for the attorney to understand the basics of the case, and to discuss a plan to resolves the issues and the steps involved with that plan.
