When we initially meet we need to learn the facts of your case, especially who is the adverse party, if any. If you’re going against an existing client or friend of ours, we will not represent you.
There will one of two possible outcomes to our meeting based on the facts and conditions of your case:
- If, after hearing the facts, we decide not to represent you, there will be no charge to you for the meeting. We were never your attorneys so a billing would be inappropriate.
- If, after hearing the facts, we offer you strategic advice and decide to represent you, you will be billed for that time as a client of our firm. You will then need to sign an engagement letter, and pay a retainer/security deposit.
You need to bring with you background documents and a check book in case we decide to represent you.
Contact us today for a personal, confidential consultation with our attorneys. We’ll give you a straight assessment of your case and answer your questions.
