initial consultations


Are you worried about scheduling an initial consultation? If you are in a situation where you need to talk to an attorney, chances are you already feel terrified as you contemplate losing someone you love, losing your life as you know it, and having to pay someone money on top of it. In working with many clients in this situation, I know how much comfort can come from learning about your rights and what to expect. Knowledge will give you power.

What can I expect at a consultation?

Initial consultations last between 45-90 minutes long. We will meet to discuss your situation and find answers to your questions. I will explain your options and the costs. It is an opportunity to talk and determine whether we are a good fit to work together on your case.

I want you to leave knowing your options, rights, and obligations. The consultation is confidential and you have no obligation to retain me.

Why do I need a consultation?

If you are involved in a family law situation, there are important reasons to consult with a lawyer:

A lot of people worry that they are going to lose their children forever. Other people think they can sole custody of their child and keep the other parent away. I can make sure you are not worrying about or expecting a result that is not going to happen.

Friends and family may not give you realistic expectations or helpful advice because all situations are different. Just because your friend pays $500 per month in child support for two kids, that may be too much or not enough in your case.
