I TRY TO MAKE IT EASY ON YOU

 1. Visit my Website to learn about me

As you can see by my website, I make the process as smooth as possible. 


2. Submit Client Contact for Conflict Check

In about an hour or after a conflict check, you will get an email stating I can talk to you and another person about my firm.  If you need help, my staff can help you over the phone.  


3. Get Appointment on the Website to talk to me

I love talking to my clients or prospective clients. I communicate best by text, messenger, and email unless you have an appointment to call me. This allows me to answer you anywhere and allows me to have time set aside to focus on you during the meeting and on other stuff when not on a phone call.  If you need help, my staff can help you over the phone.  


4. Submit the Matter Intake Form

I need more information than name, cellphone, and email to represent you and to get the Legal Service Agreement to you. If you need help, my staff can help you over the phone. 


5. Sign Legal Service Agreement or Hire Me on the website

You must sign the Legal Service Agreement and pay me or hire me on the website before I am officially YOUR attorney. You can pay through the secured portal or through LawPay. If you are hiring me for a specific legal representation, you will pay me through PayPal or Square on my website. 


6. Submit any Worksheets and other Documents

I have online worksheets for most practice areas and list of documents needed to start most legal services. If you need help, my staff can help you over the phone.  


7. Learn about the Various Technology

You need to open the Secure Portal when you get the email. You need to start a FREE Box account that will be attached to my secure Box account with all of your files. Upload any files needed for me in the folder named "Client Provided Documents." Download the Adobe Scan to your cellphone if you need to scan any documents. There are several others like Zoom, CourtCall, or LawPay, but they are very easy to learn. 


8. Communicate and Be Active in Your Case

I try to be available to my clients and keep them informed about all aspects of their case. You must do the same. I try to make that as easy as possible with the Secure Portal that sends you reminders by email and text for meetings and for actions or documents I need from you. 


9. Complete all the Forms, Processes, and Steps for your Legal Matter

I try to make the process as smooth as possible so you can get on with your life. You will get to see everything that is in my file on your matter. You can communicate me at all times on your case. 


10. Closing Letter with Final Documents

When completed, you will get a closing letter with the Final Documents as stated in the Legal Service Agreement will be sent to you along with an Exit Survey to tell me what I did well and what I need to improve based on my representation of your legal matter.

Flat Fee for Specific Representation

Flat Fee for Specific Representation

Most legal issues can be overcome by careful planning at the start of any business move. I help with many legal issues with agencies such as business entities, employment, immigration, charity filings, trademarks, and other federal and state filings for businesses.


 

In most cases, you can either plan before something happens or prevent more harm by asking an attorney and other professionals on a regular basis without the fear of an unexpected expense by having an attorney on call.
