YOUR FAMILY LAW STRATEGY BEGINS WITH
YOUR INITIAL CONSULTATION: SMART AND FORWARD PROGRESS
Hiring a lawyer for your paternity matter or divorce may seem like a simple process – the consultation, retain an attorney then you receive representation. But what most mothers and fathers, husbands and wives don’t know is the beginning of the process starts a domino effect for everything that comes next. If your initial consultation lacks certain, crucial elements, you might start down the wrong path, and just like other poor starts, can be cause for unnecessary delay, wasted fees and may even mean poor results.
Strategy – most family law attorneys just don’t use it and won’t execute in representing their clients. Too many attorneys just “react” to what’s happening while your case drags on without the forward progress you expected.
Where does strategy begin? In divorce and paternity cases, pre-judgement or post-judgement, before filing the first documents with the courts or it’s served on your spouse or the other parent. Strategy begins as soon as you contact a lawyer.
IS THERE ANY STRATEGY IN A “FREE” CONSULTATION?
I know lots of attorneys who offer free consultations. Many of them have one goal during a consultation – selling the client to retain them. Is that what you want? To get “sold” on the attorney? Or are you looking for answers to your questions, to plan strategies and figure out how to move forward.
Now, I’m not saying that every free consultation is a waste of time. I am sure that some attorneys will take the time to listen to potential clients and answer their questions. But what I can tell you – the services my family law firm offers to potential clients, affordable strategy sessions, are what most people want from a consultation. This family law strategy session is a real discussion about your facts and your issues, your needs and concerns, and before talking about lawyer costs and fees, an open and honest dialogue about what Dietrich Family Law can do for you.
For a one-hour strategy session we charge a flat fee of $120.00. During this session we provide you with an in depth review of the legal issues you are facing and give you a plan with multiple options to fit your goals and your budget. If you decide to hire us to represent you, this consult fee is credited right back to you for the cost of your representation. If you decide not to hire us, you still leave with a valuable and detailed plan of action.
