THE FIRM’S COMMITMENT TO YOU
The reason initial consultations are always free is that we want to determine how we can help you with your situation before discussing legal fees.

Some cases are susceptible to contingency fee retainer agreement which is where any attorney does not charge fees up front and only collects fees if there is a recovery, such as in a personal injury case.

All lawyers must sign a written retainer agreement with clients setting forth the details of the fee structure as well as the scope of the services. This firm’s policy of having a neutral case evaluation without charge sets us apart in helping clients make the best decisions on how to go forward with their important legal matters.  We believe in educating potential new clients without the pressure of having to pay a lawyer for an initial opinion.

We will provide an opinion as well as options going forward prior to signing any retainer agreement with a client. We accept most major credit cards to assist our clients with affordable payment plans.

  • What will be the result of my case?
