Free Initial Consultation

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, 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.

Free Initial Consultation Policy

See our Fees page for full description and terms for your free initial consultation.  The TLDR version is we offer a free initial fifteen minute phone consultation with some limitations to see how we can help.
