Frequently Asked Questions

 

Question:

 

Do you give free consultations?

 

Answer: Yes.  Once a month we have a free legal clinic for those who sign up through the Seminole County Legal Aid Society and qualify for legal aid.

 

Otherwise, our consultation fee is $500.00.  This is a time we can meet and make preliminary evaluation concerning your case and answer questions concerning your options to get the results you are looking to achieve. If you retain our firm within three months, we will credit your consultation fee towards your initial retainer.

 

Question:

 

I don't understand the legal process and my experience is that attorneys don't give enough explanation to help me understand it, are you different?

 

Answer:

 

Your attorney should be willing to take the time to educate you about the legal process.  I will make sure to explain to you what the law says and teach you how it affects the way you act or do business so that you can spot problems well in advance.

 

 

Question:

 

Are there situations that you can be flexible in your billing?

 

Answer:

 

Unlike the personal injury lawyers who advertise on TV, business and family lawyers work on an hourly rate and are not permitted to work for a "contingency fee," payable only if your legal work is completed to your satisfaction. We can offer a flat one-time fee for routine matters, such as forming a corporation. 

 

Question:

 

I have only been married for 1 year and my husband and I have no property and no children.  We just want a divorce.  How can we avoid attorney's fees?

 

Answer:

 

There are many issues in a divorce besides children and property, I would advise you to still see an attorney for a consultation to cover all issues that you have not thought of including debts and future liability.  There are several  websites, such as, Divorce online - www.CompleteCase.com that you pay a fee and get legal documents to file.  It is important to remember you are not getting legal advice.  Be extremely careful and seek proper legal advice if you have any questions.
