At The Law Offices of Scott J. Kalish we call our first meeting with potential clients “strategy meetings”. Our strategy meetings are always free. Not only do you get one on one time with a lawyer, but you are also going to get a preview of our attorney’s strategy for your case.
Other law firms may offer prospective clients free “consultations”. Usually these free “consultations” consist of the lawyer briefly listening to the facts of your case and quoting you a price for his or her fee. Once that is finished the free “consultation” ends. You likely won’t be able to get any substantive or real information from the lawyer on how to handle your case. Your free “consultation” is nothing more than a free “quote” or “estimate”.
At The Law Offices of Scott J. Kalish, we take a different approach. Our free Strategy Meetings consist of the following five (5) components.
First: You Talk We Listen.
In order to give you the best possible legal services it is extremely important that we have a firm understanding of your legal situation. This will not be the first time we talk about the facts of your case. But in order to accurately assess your case we must have an understanding of your situation.
Second: You learn about the law that may control or impact your case.
Scott has a passion for teaching others about the law. Scott will walk you through the law that may affect your case step by step. Once you have an understanding of the law, you may think about your problem differently that may lead to the discovery of other important facts.
Third: You get answers to your questions.
Once you understand the law, you may have questions regarding how the law affects your specific situation. If you ask the questions you will get the answers.
Fourth: You get strategy.
Once we have a sufficient understanding of your situation, we share our strategy with you. Depending on your situation, there may be multiple strategies to resolve your case. At this point even if you do not decide to hire us, you still walk away with something.
Fifth: You hear about fees.
Once we are on the same page, we talk about the fee to implement your case strategy. At this time, we will also talk about a fee structure or payment plan, if necessary.
