WHAT TO EXPECT AT OUR INTAKE
We screen all of our calls and implement an intake process that may take a couple of days to complete. Please be patient as we have to make sure that we are the right firm for your needs. When you reach out to us, we will ask you several personal questions about your financial situation, disability status, demographics, marital status, living situation, and legal problem that needs resolving.
We decide whether we can help you based on the information that you provide to us. If we can't accommodate your needs at our firm, we will provide appropriate referrals. If we can help with your legal matter, we will reach out to you to schedule an appointment to obtain additional information, a written retainer agreement, and discuss any other information pertinent to your legal problem.
Transmission of the information is not intended to create, and receipt does not create an attorney-client relationship without an actual signed retainer agreement. We will email you a retainer agreement once we determine that you are eligible for our services. We will only accept your case if you sign and email back the retainer agreement along with the requested documents and retainer fees.
If you feel that we are not a good fit, please contact any other agency or Lawyer Referral Services. Please look under our "Resources" page for additional information, websites, and phone numbers. We don't endorse any of the agencies provided under the Resource page. It is information only.
