What is a Free Consultation

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

From the Desk of Ross Cellino

I was recently asked, “Exactly what is a free consultation, anyway?”

A free consultation is when an attorney discusses the facts surrounding your case for free.   The consultation can take place over the phone or in person.

Typically the initial contact is made when a potential client calls our office.   A receptionist will answer the phone, but all calls involving accident cases are then routed to an attorney.   You will be able to confidentially discuss the facts with an attorney – some law firms have paralegals screen their calls but at our firm the attorneys handle each and every call.   If after discussing the facts of the case with the prospective client, we believe there is a legitimate case, we will take the next step and schedule an appointment to meet with the client.  In situations where you are unable to travel to meet us, an attorney in our office can travel to meet you.   At that meeting there is another more in-depth consultation that will take place and of course that is also free.
