We are happy to answer your questions and understand that it can be confusing to talk about or ask for help with your elder care concerns. Rest assured your information is kept completely confidential.
Your initial consultation with me will be a “Legal Strategy Session”. This Legal Strategy Session is usually a one hour consultation where I answer questions, provide some initial legal advice, and you have the opportunity to get to know me. I charge my prevailing hourly rate for this service.
If at the end of this session you decide to retain me for legal assistance, I will credit the initial consultation against the cost of the services that I will be providing to you. Under certain circumstances, the cost of the “Legal Strategy Session” may be waived by me.
Services, such as Estate Planning, Incapacity Planning, and Medicaid Planning are on a “flat fee” basis. With this type of fee, the cost of the attorney’s services does not change so that you will know the charges upfront. If you decide to engage my services, a retainer is typically collected upfront. Please note: I do not accept credit or debit cards for payment.
If you require other legal assistance such as probate, trust administration, or guardianship or conservatorship, I will charge by the hour for my professional services plus fees. Again, a retainer is typically collected upfront.
If you have any questions, please contact my office; my staff will gladly address your concerns.
