I do not charge a fee for an initial consulation. The initial consultation usually, but not always, takes place by email or telephone. Where a client requires me to review documents, e.g. a severance package, I may charge a nominal fee.
In almost all cases, if litigation becomes necessary I may charge a contingency fee; that is, my fee is contingent upon the successful outcome of your case. This simply means that I do not charge for the time spent litigating the case unless we are successful in receiving a monetary award or settlement.
In those situations where I advise clients on matters that do not involve litigation I charge a highly competetive rate. This rate is also determined by a client's means and ability to pay.
