Keeping your Legal Fees Down
While we are very cost-conscious on your behalf, there are some things you can do to assist us in keeping your legal fees and costs to a minimum:
- Telephone calls tend to be shorter than face-to-face meetings. For most items (beyond the Initial Consult), a phone call should suffice. In general, the attorney will let you know if she needs you to come in for a meeting, as opposed to having a phone call.
- Collect your thoughts. Obviously, we do want you to contact us immediately by email and/or phone if something happens for which you need our immediate assistance. For less urgent matters, it is usually more cost-effective to collect your thoughts and/or questions and organize them into a list first, then send one email to the attorney.
- Make photocopies of your original financial and/or discovery documents yourself, whenever possible.
