We will talk to each client personally (by phone or in person) to learn about the specifics of the case and get to know each other. After checking for any potential conflicts between the parties of the case, we will then prepare a written engagement agreement with detailed fee structure for the client to review and approve if client wants to move forward with the case.

I advise potential clients to think about "what are my goals?", so that they can communicate these goals to a potential lawyer on their case. This helps the lawyer understand what the case will involve and the best approach. I also think clients should consider that each and every case is unique and fact-dependent, so one outcome in a similar situation may not be the outcome in another because of one, seemingly minor detail, so they should ask themselves "what are all of the important facts in my case?"
