What Does It Cost?
If you meet with the lawyer we refer, the lawyer will collect $30 at
the initial consultation (which goes towards the operating costs of our
service). The lawyer may also charge a fee for their time/service, which
should be discussed directly with the lawyer prior to the meeting.
During or after your initial consultation, the lawyer will discuss the
legal fees required to handle your matter. There is no obligation on
your part or the lawyer to go beyond the first initial telephone contact
