What To Expect In Your First Consultation

Not many people look forward to meeting with a lawyer. We understand how intimidating it can be to set up an appointment with a stranger to discuss the intimate details of your life. That is why we do everything we can to help put you at ease. Our offices are located in a building that we own, not in an impersonal skyscraper occupied by numerous other businesses. We provide a comfortable setting that feels like home.

When you come in for your initial consultation, you will meet directly with the attorney who will be handling your case, not an assistant or a paralegal. When you leave, you will feel that we genuinely care about you and your legal situation, and we will do everything we can to help you achieve your goals.

What We Will Talk About

The first thing we will ask you to do is to complete an intake form. This will contain some basic information about your marital status, employment information and the like. It is important to keep in mind that all of this information, as well as anything you say to our attorneys, will be kept confidential. Be prepared to discuss your assets, any outstanding debts, what may be happening in terms of parenting and any other information that is relevant to your case.

If you are considering a divorce, it can be helpful to bring in pay stubs, tax returns and any other information that is pertinent to your marriage. However, do not feel pressured to bring in every detail of your life. Part of our job is to determine what we need to do to help you reach the resolution that you desire.
