We do charge a small fee for the initial consultation. If you choose to retain our firm, we'll credit the amount back toward your legal fees.
We set aside 90 minutes for each consultation to provide you with ample time to describe your situation and receive legal advice.
You are not required to bring anything to the initial consultation. It's helpful to have a good idea about your assets and debts if you are separating from your spouse. You are welcome to bring any financial or other documentation with you, but it is not required. Additionally, if you have been served with Court documents or have current Court Orders, those could be useful for our attorneys.
We prefer initial consultations to take place in person at our office. However, if you're unable to come into the office, we can also accommodate meetings via Zoom or telephone.
There is a street-level parking garage conveniently located under our building, offering plenty of visitor spaces for you to park in. In the rare event that no visitor spaces are available or your vehicle is too large, metered parking is conveniently located on the surrounding streets near our office.
We prefer that your children do not come with you and ask that you make alternative childcare arrangements. We feel it's important to minimize their exposure to the legal process and to limit distractions.
You will be billed for the value of the time we expend on your behalf. Our hourly rates vary from $200 - $300 according to the individual attorney's experience in family law. We'll often have our legal assistants and paralegals work on your case to help keep costs down.
