How it Works

First we will briefly speak to understand the circumstances regarding the case.

Next, once I agree to work on the case, I require a nonrefundable retainer prior to reviewing any documents or doing any work on a case.

When I begin work on the case, we will review what additional information is necessary to gather. Next we will develop a strategy or theory to solidify your position. Then we will verify that the standards of the industry were they being followed. Then I will attend the deposition or the court case in the event that the matter cannot be settled out of court.
