We Offer Initial Consultations That Benefit You
A good attorney-client relationship is crucial, especially in emotionally charged family law cases where your children and your finances are at stake. You should spend enough time with a prospective attorney to make sure you want to work with that person. A lawyer’s experience and qualifications are important, but a good working relationship is also based on qualities such as personality, availability and communication.
When making this important decision, you have many options to choose from in Baldwin County alone. Some attorneys offer free initial consultations in order to compete, but these are often little more than sales opportunities.
At Joseph Allan Shaw, P.C., we charge a minimal fee for our initial consultations so that we can devote the time necessary to ascertain the facts, listen to your goals, and give you real, substantive answers to your questions. We want you to know about your rights and options, including advice about the benefits and consequences of any decision, without the hard sell.
How Can You Maximize Your Time With Us?
A little preparation on your part can help ensure you are getting the most from your meeting. We recommend that you:
- Make a list of questions you want answered. Write down any questions or concerns that you have involving the law, your options, the process, and the attorney’s legal qualifications and experience.
- Think about your goals and priorities. Take the time to decide what you want your life to look like after your divorce is finalized or a custody order has been issued. When you know what you want, we can help advise you on the best way to achieve your goals.
- Gather financial statements and other documents. The more information we have, the better advice we can give. It isn’t easy to recall account balances or payoff amounts, which is why you should bring any documentation you think might be relevant. Since much of this information is available online, making sure you know your passwords is another option.
