Do you offer free consultations?
Our process for any kind of estate planning is to enroll you in our free workshop, held regularly every month. After you attend the workshop, you are entitled to 1 hour free with the attorney to discuss your specific circumstances and answer any of your questions. At the end of this consultation, we will discuss what services you need and what the cost will be for those services. If you wish to bypass the workshop, the fee for an initial consultation is $400. Unfortunately, we do not offer workshops for estate administration or crisis Medicaid at this time. Therefore, a consultation related to those topics is $400.
