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 or issues at hand.
We will then 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 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 the first working session, providing material to facilitate the selected process.
Parties may attend the free introductory alone, or with lawyers, if desired.
If we begin substantive work together I will require a small retainer to be applied to hourly billing for work outside of in-person sessions for such things as writing session notes for use by the parties, drafting agreements and substantive telephone conferences between sessions, paid by check or wire only.
You will pay for each face-to-face working session at the time of the meeting. You may pay by check or major credit cards, except American Express (sorry).
I will submit monthly itemized billing statements for your review and records, that track the application of retainer moneys, in-session payments and payments made on account.
