How We Work

Our Intake Process

Initial Consultation. In the comfort of our office, we take the time necessary to discuss the legal challenge you are facing and the solutions and services we provide. We understand the seriousness of your case and want to provide you with the opportunity and environment to get the answers you need on how to best address your case.
Contract and Fee Structure. At the conclusion of the initial consultation, contractual provisions and the fee for providing the legal representation are discussed. Once the contract is signed, the fee paid (fee payment plans, Buy Now Pay Later may be available), legal representation begins.
Legal Representation. At this point, we begin our aggressive legal representation to achieve the solutions discussed at the initial consultation. The solutions are shaped by the law and individual facts of your specific case. We update you constantly to ensure you are able to make decisions regarding your case as events occur.
Resolution. Upon the completion of your case and all contractual obligations, our legal representation concludes. Our sincerest hope is that your case was resolved in your desired fashion.
Returning Clients and Referrals. Two of the greatest affirmations to the quality and caliber of our legal services is the return of a previous client for additional services and the referral of a new client by a former client. Both of these situations are treated with the same degree of importance, by starting the process anew with an initial consultation.
