I provide a free consultation to prospective clients, but I don't offer consultations to everyone who calls. I don't want to waste your time if your issue involves an area of law that I don't handle, such as divorces or criminal matters. Thus, the following consultation request form is meant to be a quick way for you to contact me to ask whether I may be able to help. Of course, if you prefer to call me to ask about a consultation rather than submitting this form via email, that's fine, too. The purpose of a consultation appointment is to allow you to meet with me to explain your legal matter so that I can determine whether I can help you. There are many different fields of law and no attorney can be knowledgeable about all of them. Additionally, before you hire any attorney, you'll want to get to know him or her to make sure you feel comfortable. Attorneys, just like all people, have different styles and you may not feel that a particular attorney is compatible with you. Finally, before I take on your case or legal matter, I want to get to know you, too. It's important that we both feel comfortable with each other. After all, if you're considering hiring an attorney, you are likely dealing with a serious matter. So we will both need to know that we can work well together in order to resolve your matter successfully. There is no cost for the consultation and there are no strings. If we both decide that I should handle your legal matter, I'll prepare a representation agreement that we'll both sign at that time so you'll know exactly what is included, what the cost will be, and what to expect.
