most law firms which require clients to come to the office and pay a consultation fee
for an initial
consultation, Deborah’s policy is to first speak with potential clients before
scheduling an appointment. The purpose of the call, which is free of charge, is
for Deborah to determine whether the prospective client has a viable case and
for the prospective client to then decide whether to book an appointment following a brief
discussion of the case.
If the client then books an appointment for a more in-depth consultation, the consultation fee is $250. The consultation fee may be paid by check, cash, money order or PayPal. The consultation fee is applied to the initial retainer if the client retains the law firm to handle the client's case.
