FAQ

"Do I really need a lawyer?"

It cannot be overstated how frequently we face trying to fix a problem our clients face that could have been avoided in whole or in part by better planning and earlier action. Simply put, you should not be entering into a contractual or business relationship without first consulting a lawyer. It never ceases to amaze me how often a future client will sign a contract without first obtaining legal advice where the contract expressly states that PARTY should seek legal counsel before signing it.

Time and time again, clients come to us with problems that were created because they were trying to save a few bucks doing something themselves or through fad internet legal service providers. At a minimum, you need an experienced attorney to review what you are facing and advise you. Even if you think that you are in 100% agreement with the other party, you need a lawyer to review your proposed actions and advise you, to make sure that you are doing what you think you are doing and not overlooking any unintended consequences. And if you really are in agreement and are doing things properly, then those legal services can be minimized – though not ignored!


“How much is this going to cost me?”

The “Bad News” is that legal representation can be expensive.

The “Good News” is that we are committed to minimizing your costs.  If representation does not seem to be cost effective to YOU, WE will decline representation.  There are frequently situations where the cost of not obtaining legal representation will end up costing you more in the long run. 

If you have a situation that has caused you to search the internet for a lawyer, you probably need to consult a lawyer now. 

We work with clients on a variety of fee structures, including:

  •   Hourly Fee Arrangement
  •   Contingency Arrangement
  •   Reverse Contingency Arrangement (for Defendants)
  •   Flat Fee Arrangement
  •   Hybrid Arrangements
