You may contact me by phone in Greater Boston at 781-708-4445 or Western Massachusetts at 413- 341-1017. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will need to give me your name, contact information and the name of the person or persons who are the parties to the issue at hand. We will talk or correspond generally about how to get started.

I will meet with you and the other person or persons who are the parties to your matter for 30-45 minutes, to discuss the kinds of services that I offer and what process or processes may serve you well. I will answer your questions and consider alternatives with you. We will also talk about confidentiality, costs, schedules, the pacing of our work together and the expected roles of counsel. If you agree to proceed, we will discuss how to best prepare for working sessions and provide you with materials to help you get started.
Parties may attend the free introductory meeting alone, or with lawyers, if they wish.
If we begin substantive work together we will require a small retainer (paid by check or wire, but not credit card) to be applied to hourly billing for work outside of in- person sessions for such things as writing session notes for the parties, drafting agreements and substantive telephone conferences between sessions. You will pay for each face-to-face working session at the time of the meeting. You may pay for session work by check or major credit cards, except American Express (sorry).
