Free Consultation An initial consultation generally lasts between 30 to 60 minutes. It is an opportunity you to provide an overview of the problem about which you are seeking legal assistance, or the ongoing court case concerning which you are seeking a second opinion. It will allow me to ascertain what the case is about, what your objectives are, what may need to be done to reach those objectives. It is not enough time in which to convey to an attorney all of the information that he would need to arrive at a final informed opinion. It is merely a starting point.

Rates, Retainers and Additional Information Appeals: My fee for an appeal is an agreed upon, fixed amount, based upon the estimated time that the appeal I expect the appeal to take me to complete. I also estimate the out of pocket expenses that may be required, and an amount sufficient to cover those expenses must be paid in advance. Complex Litigation: An hourly rate is charged for ongoing litigation, since it is not possible to know how long an active case will continue.
