Setup Up the Initial Appointment

You need to schedule an initial consultation with an attorney to begin the legal process, divorce process, or custody process. You will have an opportunity to ask your most pressing questions during this one-hour meeting. An initial consultation fee will be quoted when you call to schedule one. All reputable lawyers have consultation fees. Be cognizant of no-fee consultations.
Schedule Consultation

What to Expect for Any Case.

A divorce or legal process begins with the initial consultation with your attorney. The hour will be devoted to answering specific questions and drafting goals for your case. You can expect your attorney to outline a strategy that has the best chance of success based on the information you provide.

Meet With Attorney at Office or Online

Ensure you bring all necessary documentation to your consultation, including current and legal documents you think our attorneys will need to see, such as W-2 forms and last year's tax records. If you're not sure what documentation to bring, ask. You will have a more productive initial consult if you have the proper documentation on hand.
