You don’t know until you’ve consulted one. The first phone call to an attorney is usually always free (unless both you and the attorney agree that the call will be chargeable) and should give you insight and information to assist you in determining for yourself whether or not you need an attorney for the particular matter.
This depends on a variety of factors including the type of case, the parties involved, and if the case includes court time, then the case load of the particular court and the particular judge.
This is simply a telephone call between you and your attorney where the attorney either provides you with legal advice or the options you have with your issue.
The simple answer is, it depends. A slightly longer explanation is that the circumstances of your case will define how your fee structure is determined. Each of our clients sign a fee agreement which details the services to be provided by our firm as well as costs that may be incurred. As a small firm we know that trust and transparency are extremely important, so we are always happy to answer any questions you may have regarding how we calculate costs and expenses.
