Discovery sessions are ideal if you know you need help, but aren’t sure exactly what type of help – you know you have a problem, but could use some help figuring out where to start. This service is available whether you are starting a small business or deciding between a will and a trust. This is a 15 minute consultation is where we have a broad discussion focusing on where you are and what things need to develop to get where you want it to be.
If you plan to dig in and handle your legal issues on your own, but need the advice and assistance of an attorney, rather than the full service/hands-on help of a professional, a strategy session is for you. During this hour-long consultation, you will receive in-depth information. You are free to ask detailed questions and you can expect to receive equally detailed answers.
If you’ve had a discovery or strategy consultation and you have follow-up questions, you may schedule a 30 minute follow-up consultation. You can use this time to get clarification or ask any questions that have come up as you move forward.
