What can I expect from an initial consultation?
After making your first appointment, you will receive a planning document that describes what pertinent details and documents to bring to the consultation to make the meeting more productive. During your initial consultation, your attorney will assess your situation, discuss important issues and determine your goals in order to make recommendations and advise you on how to proceed. At that time, the attorney will be able to give you a clear idea of fees and pricing for legal work that they recommend for your circumstances.
