Consultation Fee

My consultation fee is $100.00 for one hour. There is no consultation fee for traffic tickets. My retainer fee for representation will depend on your situation and the area of law at issue.

It is my practice not to give legal advice by telephone or e-mail, however I may answer simple questions posed of law or procedure.

My goal in any consultation is to help you decide what the best solution is for your situation, whether that results in you hiring me or not.

I prefer that clients first call the office or send me an e-mail and either I, or my paralegal, Angie, will set up an appointment for a consultation. In the consultation, we will fully discuss your situation, your options, and what the best procedure is for your particular situation. If there is already a court action pending, please bring all court pleadings with you.
