We have a general policy of offering a free initial phone consultation to see how we can help.  There are some limitations on this policy if your case is extremely complex, requires a review of a large amount of documents, is outside the scope of our practice, or for other firm specific reasons.  This page will help you to schedule to speak with an attorney regarding your legal issue.


If You Have Been Sued, Click Here For Free Special Notice of Appearance Form

If you have been sued, you only have 20 days to answer or file a notice of appearance.  If you are close to the 20 day deadline, please use this form with instructions even if you have not had a chance to consult with us.  Until we have agreed to services, you are responsible for your own defense.  This will protect you from receiving a default judgment if you send a copy to both the court and opposing attorney.

Free Initial Consultation Policy

Generally we offer a free initial phone consultation.  There are some exceptions based on practice area, complexity, and other factors.  To it be free, it must be:

  1. Within the scope of our practice
  2. Only 10 or less pages of legal documents to review
    • Note- most landlord tenant, lemon law, and student loan cases require extensive document review and may have a charge.
  3. During business hours on weekdays (9 am to 5 pm)
  4. By phone
  5. No more than 15 minutes
  6. Provide any additional documents or intake sheets required for analysis prior to appointment
  7. You will be scheduled into an hour long block where we will call you during that hour.  If you need a narrower time range or a specific time, let us know and we will try to accommodate.
  8. We will sometimes relax the above requirements upon request on a case by case basis, call to inquire
  9. Link to full terms and conditions for a free consultation

Types of consults that are not free:


Scheduling a Consultation

For us to properly analyze your case, we may need an intake form or additional information provided prior to the consultation.  We can always analyze your case in a general sense without any documentation, however, we only provide one free consultation so we like to make it count.



DISCLAIMER:  Washington Debt Law reserves the right to deny a free consultation without notice if call or case volume is excessively high, if something is outside of our scope of practice, if there is staff unavailability, if a consultation would interfere with an existing case, in case of conflict of interest, or for any other reason the firm in its sole discretion determines.  Until an attorney-client relationship is established (which requires agreement by both firm and client, a signed attorney fee agreement, and required initial payment or full payment as applicable to be made), we are not your attorney and no attorney-client relationship is established.  Washington Debt Law, by setting forth these policies and terms or holding out that we may offer initial consultation does not relieve of you any duties in any case or situation you are involved in to include answering a summons and complaint, meeting a court deadline, or in actively defending yourself or mitigating any harm to yourself or to other.
