What Should I Expect at my Initial Consultation?
You will get information about how your matter may be handled and the attorney will give you an honest assessment of your case to include an opinion about whether you need the attorney’s assistance.
If the attorney does not believe you need the firm’s assistance, he will provide information about how you can handle your matter without the assistance of counsel.

What Happens if I do not Keep my Appointment for my Free Consultation?
