Hi there! If you are reading this, you've contacted us for information about how our law firm may be able to help you, or you were referred to us from one of our great referral sources. We look forward to helping you! There are a few things we'd like to share with you.
How Does One Hire a Lawyer?
Well, in typical lawyer fashion, the answer is "it depends."
There are some lawyers that will quote fees and try to get your money in their hands as soon as possible without actually listening to what your concerns are, helping you understand where you want to be in the future, and outlining the best path to do that. We aren't those types of lawyers.
Instead we like to walk you trough a process to make sure:
1. we can help you,
2. you want us to help you, and
3. we want to work with you.
Once we figure that out we can come up with the best solution to your problems and discuss the fees involved.
Here's examples: tons of people reach out to use with a seemingly basic questions "how much for an LLC," or "how much for a contract review," or "how much for a trademark." Although these questions seem simple they are not because of too many variables to give you a quick answer to that. Everyone's business needs are different and there is no one size fits all scenarios. the following are some of our questions that we would need to answer. This is far from an exhaustive list.
Will you have any partners or investors?
Will you hire employees?
What activities will your business engage in?
What are the tax consequences?
Here's how the process works
We like to get some information from you up front. We will ask for your basic contact information, and a brief description of what you think you need. We will have this discussion with you, usually over the phone.
After we take your information, we will let you know whether our law firm can help. If we are able to help, we will invite you to schedule a consultation to speak with one our attorneys. We do charge a fee for those consultation, but it's at discount from our standard hourly rates, and its helps to ensure that people will show at the scheduled time.
Scheduling a Consultation
If you schedule a consultation, here's what to expect:
You will meet one-on-one with one of our attorneys. We will discuss your current situation, and where you would like to be in the future. This meeting will occur at our office, or via a video call (through Zoom).
We can layout all of the options for you. Sometimes, you won't need any additional services from us, and we can point you in the right direction. Often, you will decide you many need additional legal help, and we can discuss how our fees work.
The consultations will usually last up to one hour. However, our fee for the consult is not based on the time we take, but rather the value that we can provide you, Many times these calls may only take 30 minutes because we have experience with your practice area, and we know the question to ask.
If you are ready to get started, feel free to call our office at (336) 560-3926 or schedule your discovery call.
