Initial Family Law Consultation
Coming in for an initial consultation is a very big first step for many people, that is why at our firm we want to let you know exactly what to expect from the whole experience/process.
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 of $250.00 plus HST. Some firms set up free consultations for a specific amount of time, but 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; therefore, we do not put a timer on our first meeting. We want you to take as much time as you need to share your story.
After the consultation, if you are interested in retaining Jolanta's services further, she will explain retainer costs to 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 matters. We strongly encourage all clients to be as open as possible with their circumstances. Opening up about a private and personal part 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, or as though their situation is unprecedented.
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! You are never alone.
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!
