Why Our Initial Family Law Consultations are Different
In this post, we would like to break down what our initial family law consultations entail, and what you can expect.
The consultation with Jolanta is a flat fee, meaning whether you meet with her for 20 mins, 45 mins, or 90 mins, you take as long as you need to tell your story and leave the office feeling confident in your legal options and with your head held high.
Some firms setup free consultations for a specific amount of time, however, our policy is different. At our firm, we want to put our clients first. Free consults can feel rushed, and some lawyers may not feel comfortable diving into your legal options free of charge. At our firm, we treat initial consultations as seriously as any other service we provide, and we do not put a timer on our initial consults so you can feel truly comfortable sharing your story.
In the consultation itself, if you are interested in retaining Jolanta's services further, she will explain retainer costs with you based on your unique set of circumstances and services required.
Our goal is to educate our clients on their legal rights and offer the support and options they need to make an informed decision about their family matter. In the consultation itself, we strongly encourage all clients to be as open as possible with their circumstances. Opening up about a deeply personal portion of your life can be daunting and intimidating, but the more honest you are the more we can help you! We pride ourselves on no surprises, but for this to be successful, this mantra needs to be a two-way street.
When confiding in a lawyer, it is important to realize that our office has seen it all! We have been helping people in Niagara with various matters for over 23 years, which means not only are we accustomed to hearing even the most difficult and emotional family matters, we also realize that many people enter the office feeling alone, as though their situation is unprecedent or much worse than most people.
Rest assured, everyone thinks their matter is the harshest, most unpleasant, and brutal circumstance, when in fact there are many people going through very similar experiences!
Even if you aren't ready to retain a lawyer just yet, sometimes meeting with a legal expert to explain your legal rights and options is the boost of confidence you need to keep going. Contact us today to set up an appointment, or chat with us about how we can help you!
