Information for Potential New Clients
Depending on the current caseload and other client obligations, the firm may or may not be able to accommodate your specific legal needs. In most cases, that can be determined during a free, no obligation 15-minute telephone introduction where we can both determine if your specific legal need is one that is appropriate for the firm to take on, and if so, what the scope and potential cost of that representation might be.
If it seems that legal services may be needed and appropriate to our practice, we can then schedule a more formal consultation, usually at the office. The fee for a formal consultation is a nonrefundable flat $250.00, which includes up to one hour of legal consultation either by telephone or in person, It is important to understand that an initial consultation is just that, and no legal services will be provided on your behalf unless and until we both agree upon and sign a formal written retainer letter setting forth the scope and terms of that representation. Also, any advice or perspective shared by an attorney during an initial consultation is necessarily limited to the time and facts then shared and available, which is insufficient to form any legal opinion or recommend any potential solution. Consultation is intended only as overview and guidance, not representation, and may not be relied upon as a legal opinion upon which specific action or inaction should be based.
If you wish to schedule an introduction or initial consultation, please contact the office at (202) 536-5650 or complete the request for consultation in the link below. A brief description of the initial consultation process will then be sent to you by email, which must be completed, signed, and returned prior to any initial consultation. Please do not forward any confidential information about your legal needs at this time.
