Hiring A Lawyer Can Be Intimidating
Clients don’t like to pay without knowing what they will get and what it will cost. Understandable. Lawyers don’t like to talk to clients without knowing that they will get paid. Understandable. Where do we go from here?
I offer fixed-fee business law consultations for exactly this reason. Consultations generally run 1-2 hours and may be booked at my office, by phone, or by video conference.
I will review your questions, identify legal considerations, help you determine business priorities, and offer you options for moving forward. In many cases, a consultation is all you need. In other cases, we can refer you to specialists or confirm pricing for additional work.
If you would like us to review documents as part of the consultation, please bring them to the meeting or email them along in advance. While I will make comments and provide feedback, I will not make detailed edits to an agreement within a consultation. Our review of the documents will be limited to the consultation itself. If you require a detailed contract or lease review, we can confirm pricing after seeing the documents.
