How do I set up an appointment?
Contact us by phone at (925) 362-3364 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an intake form. We will send it to you and set up a consultation once we receive it back. We ask that you send us the intake sheet before your consultation so we can review the facts of your case prior to your consultation to maximize time discussing your case.
Do you charge for consultations?
Yes. We know that some law firms offer free consultations but we charge a flat rate of $150 for consultations because our firm is designed to be low volume and to find great working relationships. We charge this rate based on feedback from our clients, who value our attention and availability. Our goal is to provide excellent service to a small group of valued clients. We want prospective clients to make a good-faith investment as we are making an investment of our time as well.
What are your hourly rates and billing practices?
Time is billed in minimum increments one-tenth (.1) of an hour. Mr. Kent Tierney charges $400 per hour, Ms. Katlin Law charges $350 per hour and our Senior Paralegal, Ms. Raquel Hill charges $200 per hour. We bill for the time spent on telephone calls, e-mails, and other electronic communications relating to your case, including calls and e-mails with you, witnesses, opposing counsel, court personnel or other persons as well as appearing at hearings. Our staff may confer among themselves about your case, as required and appropriate. When we confer, each person will charge for the time expended, as long as the work is done is reasonably necessary and not duplicative.
