Initial Consultation, Fees and Collaborative Representation
If you are considering divorce, modification of custody, child support or alimony; are facing job loss or wrongful discrimination in the workplace; or are seeking to resolve a business or real estate dispute, and want to better understand your legal rights, call me for a free telephone consultation to discuss how I may help. We can schedule an appointment to meet and discuss legal strategies to address your goals and concerns.
My Virtual Office business model enables me to deliver excellent service more cost effectively. After the initial client meeting I collaborate with clients primarily through email and phone. I meet with clients at offices in Bethesda, Rockville and Washington DC whenever face-to-face meetings are helpful. Online credit and debit card payment options are available for clients’ convenience. These efficiencies allow me to deliver services at very competitive rates, and to employ a sliding fee scale to enable me to serve clients of modest means.
I understand that litigation can strain middle-class budgets and strive to deliver value for your hard-earned money. For capable clients on a limited budget I will proactively enlist your paralegal efforts to save legal fees by downloading your own payroll and bank statements, developing chronologies, family budgets, and drafting discovery responses for me to edit. In appropriate cases you can also retain me on a ‘limited scope basis’ to draft your Complaint, draft and respond to discovery responses on your behalf, and only appear at a Court hearing when you decide that you need my lawyerly expertise to brief and argue motions or conduct trials in Court.
Kindly provide me with basic information so we can schedule a free and confidential telephone intake interview.
