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.
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:
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.
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 Intake & Referral Coordinator will have this discussion with you, usually over the phone. If yours is the type of case we handle, then our Intake & Referral Coordinator will tell you the next steps!
After we have your information, we 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 our Intake & Refrral Coordinator is not sure if we can help, we will review your case with one of our attorneys, and we will follow up with you to schedule a consultation, or to try to find a referral for you.
If you schedule a consultation, here's what you can expect:
If you are ready to get started, feel free to call our VIP referral line at (814) 580-6091 or schedule your kickoff call.
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!
