The purpose of an initial consultation is for the attorney to advise you, the prospective client, what if anything, may be done for you, and what the minimum fee, therefore, will be. The purpose is not to render a definitive legal opinion as it may be impossible to fully assess a matter within the time frame allotted for a consultation or with the (information or documents) that you may be able to provide at the initial consultation.
One of three outcomes is possible following your consultation
- You and the Attorney mutually agree to the terms of representation, or (After a separate document called an Agreement for Representation is signed a copy will be provided to you).
- The Attorney declines representation, or
- You decide not to use the services of the Attorney.
