Frequently Asked Questions

 

“Do you take cases on a contingency fee basis?”

No.  We handle cases on an hourly basis.  Although, some services can be provided on a flat rate basis, such as the preparation of a Handbook or Contract.  Our rates are competitive based on our 25 years of legal experience.


“Do you provide a free consultation?”

Generally, an Attorney will speak with potential clients on the telephone, at no cost, where he or she will engage in a short consultation to provide the potential client with information regarding the services we can provide, determine a potential conflict of interest and whether the particular case is one we may handle based on the type of matter.  If mutually agreeable, an appointment is scheduled.  If not, we provide referrals, if requested, whenever possible. Call us at (707) 578-8212 or (888) 606-4177.

At the initial meeting, time spent on attorney introductions and reviewing a written retainer agreement (up to one hour) is also at no charge. If a potential client sets up an appointment to further explore the services we can provide, such meeting will be at no cost, however, any time spent providing advice regarding a particular legal matter is charged at the Attorney’s hourly rate.  In such a case, the potential client decides whether to end the meeting and incur no cost or proceed to retain our legal services.


“Do you represent the Employee or the Employer?”

In Employment matters, we represent the Employer (Businesses and Non-Profit Organizations).  We advise the Business owner, Human Resources Director, Executive Director or Board of Directors with business and employment decisions.  We assist with matters such as preparing key employee contracts, confidentiality and trade secret agreements, Handbooks, Policies & Procedures Manuals.  We advise regarding disciplinary actions and policies such as hiring, firing, granting of leaves of absence and other critical decisions that can assist the Company in avoiding litigation.

In Litigation matters, we represent businesses and individuals (in non-employment matters), after conducting a conflict of interest check to determine any potential conflicts with current or former clients.
