Your request has been received. We will be in touch to arrange your telephone or in-person initial consultation within one business day.
WHAT INFORMATION SHOULD I HAVE READY?
It’s helpful if you are able to give us specific dates where applicable, and have all key documents with you for your initial consultation. Depending on the type of issue you are contacting us about, this might include letters, insurance documents, contracts, reports, etc.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE INITIAL CONSULTATION?
The initial consultation can be conducted in person or over the phone, depending on the type and complexity of your question or issue, and what is most convenient for you.
We will tell you whether or not we can help you with your legal issue and we will provide you with information about what to expect from the legal process so you can make an informed decision about if and how you would like to proceed.
During the consultation, you should feel free to ask any questions you have. Don’t be shy when it comes to asking questions about things like lawyers’ fees and expenses, how long your case may take, what risks you face, and what specific things we can and can’t help you with. It’s important that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about how you would like to proceed.
WHAT SHOULDN’T I EXPECT FROM THE INITIAL CONSULTATION?
The initial consultation is about sharing information: you can tell us about your situation, and we will let you know if and how we can help. But we won’t be able to give you formal legal advice, perform any services, or do anything on your behalf until you have formally retained our services.
AT WHAT POINT ARE YOU RETAINED AS MY LAWYERS?
An initial consultation does not mean that we have been retained to act as your lawyers.
There is no obligation for you to retain our services or do anything else after the initial consultation. The point of the consultation is to let you know how we can help, and to make sure you have the information you need to make an informed decision about how to proceed. If you decide to go ahead, we will provide you with written confirmation of our retainer. Remember that we aren’t hired to represent you until we have provided you with that written confirmation of our retainer.
We can’t guarantee the reliability of this form or other electronic communications. We do our best, but there’s always the possibility of a technical glitch or other problem that might prevent us from getting your message or responding to it promptly. Because of that, you should call us or come see us in person if your matter is urgent. Keep in mind that submitting information using this form doesn’t create a lawyer-client relationship: we aren’t retained as your lawyers until you received express written confirmation from us.
