Q: How large is your firm?
A: I have a solo practice, which means that I work alone. My clients like the fact that they have direct access to me. I also have a large network of other attorneys and CPAs I can call on if you have a larger matter or an issue that is outside of my area of expertise.
Q: How can I schedule a consultation with you?
A: The easiest way to schedule a consultation is by calling me at (202) 630-6546 or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will likely schedule a telephone consultation first, and if needed, an in-person consultation.
Q: What should I know before we meet (either in person or by phone)?
A: Please know that I cannot give legal advice unless I am representing you. I can provide general legal information, but the purpose of the consultation is for us to decide whether we are a good fit and can work together.
Also, working with an attorney is a lot like going to the doctor’s office. You may have done some WebMD research on what disease you think you have, but you still want to keep an open mind and listen to what the doctor says. Your diagnosis could be wrong, or the doctor could say you’re right, but let’s go the preventative route instead.
Many of my clients come to my office having already self-diagnosed their business’s legal problems. Sometimes I will ask the business to take a step back and schedule a legal strategy session or a business audit with me so that I can explain what they should consider doing before they hire me to solve a specific legal issue.
Q: Why should I hire you?
A: I’m honest and I spend a lot of time educating my clients. There are no hidden tactics or sales strategies I use to lure you in only to tack on additional services and hidden fees at the end of your engagement. I try to be upfront with the pricing as much as possible. I hate billing surprises as much as you do.
