What is “legal consulting”?
“Legal consulting” is our term for a broad range of pragmatic services we provide to individuals and businesses.
- Single consult. Many people are just looking for some direction, or for specific legal questions to be answered. They may not know if they really need an attorney. They may not need or want to pay a large fee deposit. We frequently advise people on a range of issues, and are often able to resolve problems without a full representation. If you end up needing representation, we can either assist you ourselves, or use our referral network to find you another advocate that better suits your needs.
- Ongoing consulting. Many businesses and individuals benefit from having an attorney available on an ongoing basis to answer questions and handle minor legal affairs. Our typical ongoing consulting clients are businesses that may need us to draft or review contracts, communicate on their behalf to resolve minor disputes, advise them on regulatory compliance, as well as a diverse variety of other matters. For new consulting clients, we charge a drastically reduced fee deposit. For established clients, we do not charge an advanced fee deposit - instead relying on our clients to pay their bill upon receipt.
- Litigation Consulting and Contract Work. We are also available to other attorneys for litigation consulting and project/contract work on a case by case basis.
