Telephone Consultations

Sometimes all you need is a short telephone consultation to get what you need. We've made it easy to get one at a modest cost.

How We Do It.

It's a one-hour telephone consultation with an experienced transactional lawyer. Its purpose is to help you get up to speed quickly on any legal matter, business opportunity, negotiation or agreement you may be facing.

We help you tap into our knowledge and experience base to quickly access what's most important to you.

What Can I Use It For?

Use it to review an agreement that has been presented to you... or think of things you may want to ask for in an agreement you intend to present to someone else.

You can use us as a sounding board.

Get a 2nd legal Opinion about what is really possible (we pride ourselves on our ability to devise ways to accomplish what others can not).

We can even draft language for you as we talk.

How Does It Work?

You call us and schedule a time for the telephone consultation. At that time we'll ask you what help you want or need.

If we believe we can help you, we'll schedule a convenient time for the telephone consultation.

If we don't think we can help you, we will say so, and if possible, refer you to someone who can.

At all times you are in charge. We focus on the specific topic, problem or agreement you want us to. You can readjust the focus as you determine necessary.

If you have a legal agreement you will find that we are surprisingly capable of reviewing it in real time and providing substantive analysis and commentary on it as we talk It comes from reviewing and analyzing thousands and thousands of agreements over many years.

What if I Want More Than Just an Hour?

We will warn you when we reach one hour. At your election, you can extend the consultation by 15 minute increments either in the initial session or to subsequent sessions.

How Do I Prepare to Get The Most Out It?

At the time we schedule our consultation we will make a recommendation on how you should prepare for it in order to get the most out of it... based on your objectives and needs.

What Does It Cost?

First Time Clients get a Special Introductory Rate of $100 for the first hour and $100 for the second hour (afterwhich the rate reverts to our standard hourly rate). The discounted rate applies only to scheduled Saturday telephone consultations.
