Free Initial Consultation (In-Office, by Phone, or via Zoom)

There is no better way to know if or how much legal help you might need until you actually talk with an attorney to find out. However, as with any area of the law, finding the right attorney can be a challenge. The first step, be it for bankruptcy advice, or to simply find the best divorce lawyer in your area, is to sit down and talk with one. This process provides you the opportunity to not only learn the necessary initial information you should have before you do anything legal, but allows you to determine for yourself if the attorney’s personality and philosophy for handling a case fits with yours. For that reason, we offer a free consultation to introduce ourselves, and provide you an opportunity to ask questions of us that you may have. This in turn allows you to come away with at least a preliminary understanding of your legal rights and options. Being comfortable in the knowledge that your attorney understands what it is you are wanting, is able to listen to your concerns, and is willing to guide you accordingly through the process, is essential to a successful resolution.
