RETAINING US – a primer for
potential new clients:
Retaining the Firm – or any lawyer – is just like any other business
transaction: you need a contract.
The fact that you have an appointment with us DOES NOT mean that we
have agreed to work with you OR that you must work with us. The only way in which the Firm will
be obligated to work on your matter is by your signature on a retainer
letter sent to you by the Firm after your initial consultation with
us. We believe a written
contract is the best way to start our relationship.
Before you hire us and before we agree to
help you, we need to talk with you in a Aconsultation.@ In a consultation, you will receive basic
advice about your options and how to hire us, including our rates. We
charge a reduced rate for our initial consultations.
In order to
arrange a consultation, we will ask you to make an appointment.
Generally, an initial consultation appointment is for 30 minutes --
although consultations for some matters, like matrimonial matters, will
take up to an hour.
As you might expect, we guard information
part of our retainer agreement.
