Attorneys don’t have to get involved only AFTER a problem has occurred. Attorneys can be even more useful when they are involved BEFORE a problem occurs. An attorney’s involvement can save you a lot of time, money, and stress later on down the road.
Can I trust my lawyer with confidential information?
Communications between clients and their attorneys are protected by attorney/client privilege. Your lawyer can not disclose to anyone what you tell them in confidence. Actually, it’s in your best interests to be honest and upfront with your attorney so they can accurately and adequately advise you on your options. Making sure your attorney is fully aware of the situation, and there aren’t any unpleasant surprises later, will help you in the long run.
It depends on the matter. Many matters are handled on an hourly basis and require a portion to be advanced and placed in a trust account. There are times when we charge a flat fee instead of billing hourly.
We track our time down to the tenth of an hour, every six minutes. When you get an invoice it will show you how much time we spent on each item of work.
