When You Have A Question ...


If you aren’t sure whether or not you need an attorney for a particular problem, call our office for a free consultation.  We will tell you if you do not have a legal problem.  If you do, we can arrange a meeting with an attorney who works primarily in that area of law to help make sure that your legal matter does not become more serious.


When You Need An Attorney .....


When you call our office with a legal problem you will speak directly with Mr. O'Connor, who will initially provide you with advice during the telephone consultation.  If legal services are necessary you will be provided with a prompt office consultation appointment at a time convenient to you.


How Much Will It Cost?

The cost of our help depends on the type of services you require.  Before we begin work on your legal case we will discuss with you the types of legal remedies and alternatives available to you and the estimated fees and costs involved in pursuing them.  We will provide you with a copy of your signed Fee Agreement, setting forth the anticipated fees and costs based on the expected course of legal events, the extent of the work we are authorized to do and its costs to you.  For many matters, a flat fee based on the complexity of the work involved is appropriate, so you pay one fee to cover the entire cost of that service.  Some work is undertaken on an hourly basis, where the fees are based on the time actually spent on your legal matter for which you will be billed monthly.


In some cases, groups and organizations pay all or part of our fees and costs for their members.  If you don't belong to such a group, you are responsible for payment of all fees and costs. Payment of a retainer (an advance deposit of fees) will be required before any work is done on your case and your lawyer will tell you in advance when the balance will be due. As the work progresses, if there are unexpected developments or complications which necessitates a longer time to complete your work or greater expense than originally anticipated, we will inform you a soon as we recognize that fact.
