CONSULT WITH THE LAWYER HANDLING YOUR CASE
When you meet with LeGrande Law, you won’t be meeting with a non-lawyer, paralegal or law student – you meet with the attorney that will be handling your case. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about your situation with the attorney during the consultation. Attorney Tristan LeGrande will have looked up your case, know your situation, legal background, and be able to explain the legal issues implicated by your specific situation. However, there IS a consultation fee for in-office consultation with attorney Tristan LeGrande. The consultation fee is applied to the fees for representation.
For years LeGrande law did not charge for in-office consultations. The policy at LeGrande Law has changed due to the amount of clients (and potential clients) LeGrande Law services. This required using valuable time and resources for working on paying clients cases. This was an overwhelmingly beneficial change for Clients and potential clients alike. There are several key reasons we charge a consultation fee for an in-office consultation, as explained below.
CONSULT WITH A LAWYER THAT HAS TIME TO DISCUSS YOUR ISSUE
By scheduling an appointment in advance, attorney Tristan LeGrande is able to set-aside time to prepare for and conduct the consultation. Every criminal case is different. Sometimes important legal issues exist. Often a clients history with the criminal justice system will have a significant impact on the prosecution of their case. We look into your case, its legal issues, and your individual history before you walk in the door. When you walk in, we are ready to intelligently advise you on your situation and options going forward.
Unlike law firms who overschedule free consultations, we take the time to understand and explain your legal circumstances. This way the prospective client the opportunity to ask questions, and gain knowledge. Often our prospective clients leave the consultation with documentation they did not previously have or know existed.
WE WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT YOUR LEGAL ISSUE
Attorney Tristan LeGrande is a solo practitioner, that has built a successful, top-rated criminal defense law firm over the past decade. As such, we are serious about our clients cases, and care deeply about achieving the best outcome for each and every client. Because attorney LeGrande’s time is limited and extremely valuable, priority must be given to our clients that have entrusted us with their defense. Many have entrusted multiple legal matters to our care.
We get results for our clients. However, practicing law is how we make our living. It is the only way we pay the bills. As LeGrande Law has grown, it has become impossible to dedicate the time to paying clients they deserve, while also providing prospective clients consultations that are not always serious about hiring the attorney – who were “kicking tires,” “lawyer shopping,” or just looking for free advice. Thankfully we have many prospective client calls each week!
By charging a consultation fee, we are minimizing the financial impact of expending time considering a prospective client’s case, when there is no guarantee that an attorney-client relationship will ever materialize. We are also offsetting the opportunity cost of being disqualified from representing an opposing party to a given legal dispute.
