  • Prospective cases are reviewed on an individual basis. James determines the appropriate attorney fees based on your specific charges. A staff member will contact you regarding the attorney fees.
  • The initial consultation is free. We understand that you must have total confidence and trust in your attorney. We encourage you to make an appointment to meet with James and meet the staff. Bring all papers and documents about the charges or your case. This may be a chaotic time in your life, and it is beneficial to list your questions. Bring them with you to the initial consultation, as we want to answer all of your questions.
  • James will review the information from the courts with you, listen to your description of the incident and advise you what can be done to provide you with the best possible defense and the possible outcome.

After having all of your questions answered by James, you will visit with Lynda Kay Makin, the Legal Administrator, about the financial arrangements. Hiring an attorney normally takes place after you have a personal interview or phone conference with the lawyer. The attorney you hire could very well have your freedom in his or her hands. It is imperative that you hire someone you trust, and who is competent to handle your legal problem. An attorney that is Board Certified is going to charge more than someone fresh out of law school. You typically get what you pay for. What is your freedom worth?
