Initial Consultation

One of the most important services we provide to potential clients is the initial consultation. During your consultation, we can review your paperwork and evidence, in addition to answering any questions you might have. We get enough information from you to understand your unique situation, desires, and goals from our representation. The information-gathering process allows us to give you customized advice.

There is a flat $350 fee to consult with Managing Attorney Regina I. Edwards for one hour.

Because there is a flat fee for the consultation, you need not worry that “the clock is ticking” in case the consultation lasts a bit more than an hour. You are encouraged to take the time to be sure you are getting the advice you need and that you understand your legal options.

Please feel free to fax or email over any documentation that would assist us in our consultation. In fact, if a case is filed, it is imperative that we review all the filed documents prior to your consultation. The consultation is YOUR time, so the better prepared you are, the more we can help you.

We will perform an initial analysis, and inform you of the strengths and weaknesses of the case.   There will be weaknesses in your case, and we will always be upfront and honest about your case’s weaknesses and will brainstorm strategies to either repair or mitigate those flaws long before the case arrives in court. To find out what to bring to your consultation, consult this page.    If you are considering retaining Edwards Family Law, the consultation process is an opportunity for you to become acquainted with our professional staff, who will assist you throughout your case.

The consultation always remains confidential, even if you do not retain us. In addition, if your spouse or opposing party contacts us at any time in the future, they will be informed that we cannot provide any services to them.  Please feel free to inquire at any time during or after the consultation about the costs of any future representation. Every case is unique, and as a result, attorney’s fees can vary greatly from case to case. We are not able to give you an estimate of costs until we sit down with you, review your paperwork, and listen to your story. We pledge to always give a candid analysis of what the costs of your case might be.

Phone Consultations

For the convenience of our out-of-state or out-of-country clients, whom Edwards Family Law services on a regular basis, we also provide telephone consultations. A “telephone consultation” is the same as an in-person consultation, except for the fact that it occurs via telephone.  The same consultation fee applies and must be paid via credit card and a receipt signed in advance. At any point during or after the consultation, you may choose to retain our firm.  For your convenience, in addition to traditional payment methods, Edwards Family Law accepts Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

After becoming a client, you will meet our staff who will assist with your case, and you will receive additional reading material and forms to complete via e-mail.

We certainly look forward to the possibility of meeting with you for a consultation. If you decide to arrange a consultation with one of our attorneys, please simply call us to make the appointment.  Please refer to this page to find out what you should bring to a consultation.

We can help you immediately.
