How much is your initial consultation?
$295 for a basic consultation, and $395 for an extended consultation. Our attorneys are available for a brief initial phone conversation to assess the case, and what type of consultation is needed.

Do you accept credit cards?
We accept Mastercard, Visa, or Discover cards for the initial consultation only. For other legal fees, we require cash, check, or money order. We can also arrange wire transfer for international clients, as well as automatic debit for domestic banks.
Do you offer a free consultation?
We offer a courtesy 1-2 minute phone call with one of our three attorneys to briefly assess your situation. This will help determine whether we can help you and what type of consultation (basic or extended) would be appropriate.
Do you provide a translator for non-English speakers?
No. You are responsible for providing your own translator if needed.
Do you take passport photos?
No. Your local pharmacy, camera shop or post office may provide this service.
