WHY DON'T WE OFFER FREE CONSULTATIONS?: In some types of legal matters like family law and personal injury cases, a free consultation is appropriate because your lawyer needs to assess whether you have a viable claim or legal matter before you hire him or her to represent you.
In business law, our first consultation is different. When we meet with clients for the first time we get right to it and begin to give legal advice and business strategy early on in our conversation. As such, a free consultation isn't the right solution for this situation. But, we understand that sometimes a new client is unsure of whether they just need some basic legal information or if they need legal services performed by a lawyer. WIth this in mind we will apply the legal fees paid for the initial consultation towards any legal services rendered in relation to the same matter if you hire us within 7 days of your initial consultation.
In those rare circumstances when a new potential client is just looking for a lawyer and does not need legal advice just yet, we will consider meeting for a brief meet and greet for you to get to know us and so we can learn more about your business legal needs. If you fall into this category please feel free to send us an email and we may explore this option with you.
