How does this work?
The first step is an inital consultation. Before that can happen, a potential client needs to contact me. You can call, email, or schedule a time to talk. Our first converstation, or consultation, will usually be short. I do not charge you anything for this first conversation. Importantly, this first consultation does not mean that I am your attorney. The point of it is for me to learn about your issue and determine if I can help you. We have to agree to work together before an attorney-client relationship is formed.
If we do decide to work together, the next steps will vary based on the nature of your matter. We would likely have a longer meeting or call so I can gather more information and/or I may ask you to share documents for me to review before we talk again. My fee also varies depending on the type of work. Most often I charge an hourly fee. For some matters, generally those that are more discrete, I may offer a flat fee.
My biggest tip for working with me (or any attorney) is to ask questions if you are unsure about anything.
My main areas of interest include:
• Small Businesses and Start-Ups
• Civil Litigation
• School Law
• Family Law
Feel free to contact me about any legal issue. If I don’t feel I can capably help you, I’ll try to direct you to someone who can!
