Why do you do in-office consultations while other firms do them over the phone?

Please make sure you are hiring someone you fully trust. Always meet with a lawyer or member of a legal administration team at a business address. Do not meet with a perspective lawyer at a coffee shop, restaurant, or his/her home. We understand that there are exceptions when a client lives out of state or is unable to travel to the firm. Hiring a lawyer is an important decision so make sure you choose a firm with a reputation of excellence and professionalism.
