During the consultation we will discuss your personal and family situation, review your assets and how they’re titled, discuss what concerns you may have and your priorities. We have prepared a comprehensive Estate Planning Questionnaire that will walk you through all the information necessary for your consultation. If you bring the completed questionnaire to your consultation, the first 30 minutes is free of charge. You can read a list of FAQ's about the estate planning process and download your questionnaire here.
After a person has died, Probate is the court-supervised process where the assets of that person's estate are gathered, debts are assessed, and ultimately legal title of the assets of the estate pass to the proper parties. Our office offers a 30-minute initial probate consultation free of charge, provided that you bring with you a completed Probate Questionnaire. You can read more about the probate process here.
If you have another matter you'd like to speak to our office about we are happy to schedule a brief phone call with the attorney (no more than 15 minutes) to discuss your matter and how our office may be of assistance. Additionally, many times routine Landlord/Tenant matters such as evictions for non-payment and preparation of new leases do not require an in-office consultation and can be initiated by phone.
Please understand that the attorney will not be able to answer legal questions or give advise during an initial phone call.
If your matter is more complex or if you would like legal advice an guidance about your particular situation the attorney will need to review the facts and circumstances and any documents associated with your case. For that you will need to setup a consultation. Our normal hourly rates vary between $250 - $300 per hour depending on the type of matter. However we offer a discounted rate for initial consultations of $100 for a 1/2 hour or $200 for a full hour.
