The legal system is complex and vast. Here are a few preliminary questions we are frequently asked. If you require more information feel free to contact us for a FREE Consultation.
Do I need an attorney?
If you are in a situation where court papers have been served upon you or where an interest of yours is at stake and could result in litigation, hiring an attorney could be beneficial to you in protecting those interests in a way that you may not be able to do on your own.
How will I be updated about my case?
Our office understands that communication is one of the key components to lawyer and client relationships. Keeping our clients updated on their pending matters timely is something our firm takes pride in. We send E-mail updates as soon as we get new information into the office at zero extra charge, as well as allow our clients to speak to our team on the phone at zero extra charge.
What are the different types of payment schedules?
On a flat fee retainer, the price for the legal service provided is for a sum agreed upon regardless of how long the case lasts. Once paid under this fee schedule at the outset of representation, our office will not ask for cent more regardless if additional money is required.
On an hourly fee basis, our office will bill the client for an agreed hourly rate. An itemized breakdown of the services provided and the amount of time spent on each service will be provided to the client monthly or at the end of representation.
Under the step-by-step retainer agreement, the client will be charged for each step in the case regardless of how long each step takes. For example, each court appearance will be billed separately as they come up. This also applies to the drafting of different motions and correspondence with opposing counsel and the court.
What are your office hours and can I schedule an appoint to come into the office?
Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 9am-6pm. All of our clients are welcome to come to our office for consultations, meetings, etc., however, all in-office meetings have to be made at least 24 hours in advance.
