Thank You for Reaching Out

Hi there! If you are reading this, you've contacted us for information about how our law firm may be able to help you, or you were referred to us from one of our great referral sources. We look forward to helping you! There are a few things we'd like to share with you.

How does one hire a lawyer?

Well, in typical lawyer fashion, the answer is "it depends."

There are some lawyers that will quote fees and try to get your money in their hands as soon as possible without actually listening to what your concerns are, helping you understand where you want to be in the future, and outlining the best path to do that. We aren't those types of lawyers.

Instead, we like to walk you through a process to make sure:

  1. we can help you,
  2. you want us to help you, and
  3. we want to work with you.

Once we figure that out, we can up with the best solution to your problems and discuss the fees involved.

Here's an example: tons of people reach out to us with a seemingly basic question "how much for an LLC." Unfortunately, there are too many variables to give you a quick answer to that. The following are some of our questions that we need to answer. This is far from an exhaustive list.

  • Will you have any partners or investors?
  • Will you hire employees?
  • What activities will your business engage in?
  • Do you actually need an LLC?
  • Is an LLC going to give you the liability protection you want, or would a different entity work better?
  • What are the tax consequences?
  • Do you need anything else, such as contracts, terms & conditions, or a privacy policy?

Here's how the process works.

We like to get some information from you up front. We will ask for your basic contact information, and a brief description of what you think you need. Our Client Concierge will have this discussion with you, usually over the phone. If you are reading this page, we should have your email and phone number, and he will follow up with you soon.

Get on the Schedule Now

After he takes your information, he will let you know whether our law firm can help. If we are able to help, he will invite you to schedule a consultation with a member of our team. We do not charge a fee for those consultations.

If he is not sure if we can help, he'll review your case with one of our attorneys, and he will follow up with you to schedule a consultation, or to try to find a referral for you.

Scheduling a Consultation

If you schedule a consultation, here's what you can expect:

  1. You will meet one-on-one with a member of our team. We will discuss your current situation, and where you would like to be in the future. This meeting will occur at our office, or via a video call (through Zoom).

  2. We can layout all of the options for you. Sometimes, you won't need any additional services from us, and we can point you in the right direction. Often, you will decide you may need additional legal help, and we can discuss how our fees work.

  3. The consultations will usually last up to one hour. There is no fee for our consultations. Many times these calls may only take 30 minutes because we have experience with your practice area, and know the questions to ask.

If you are ready to get started, feel free to call our office at (814) 315-9255 or schedule your kickoff call.

Some important things you should know about our firm.

First, we don't view our clients as "transactions." By the nature of our practice, we want to have a relationship with you. We want you to come back to us for advice and input on your major decisions. Our goal is to become your trusted advisors for your life and your business. This is why the process above is important. You want to make sure you want to work with us, and we want to make sure we want to work with you.

Second, if you're starting or growing a business, we get it. We help small businesses because we are a small business. Our founder makes sure this message echoes throughout our entire firm. We know what it's like to hire and fire employees, to deal with the stress of paying rent and making payroll, and we really know how to grow a business. One of our mentors really spells that out in this video:

We really look forward to hearing from you.  Most people don't like talking to lawyers.  But we LOVE hearing from our clients.  Thank you, again, for reaching out!
