Well, at a free consultation, what I don’t want to do is waste your time, and so, if you don’t have time to come to the office for that consultation, I’m more than happy to talk to you over the phone, and what I’ll talk to you about are the generic facts about your case.
For example, in a personal injury case, where the accident happened, what sort of injuries you have. What sort of insurance information have you already received? Have you spoken to the police? Did the other person speak to the police? These sort of ideas and discussions can happen over the phone if you’re too busy to come into the office initially.
In a criminal case, you might not have time to come downtown, but you want to know what’s going on with your son or daughter or your husband or wife, and I can talk to you about the prospects of bond; I can talk to you a little bit about the facts of the case, understanding that I won’t have all of the facts yet.
If you’re a lawyer and you call me and you say, “Look. I’ve received this letter”, I’m going to ask you about the grievance itself and ask you what you think about the grievance, and whether or not you think you can respond yourself – which sometimes you can, or you want to have legal counsel at least review your response.
We have over thirty years of experience practicing law, representing people in criminal cases, as well as personal injury cases. Feel free to give us a call if you’ve been in an accident.
