What to Expect from a Legal Consultation at Our Office

by | Oct 25, 2021 | Family Law, Legal Consultation

When you come in for an initial conference at the Law Office of Gary J. Frank P.C., what you get is a comprehensive legal consultation with an experienced and caring attorney — not a sales pitch, like you may get from some lawyers. During your initial consultation, you will meet with one or more of our firm’s attorneys, Gary FrankHanna Amar, and Logan Matura. We’ll give you a solid understanding of your legal rights and how the court system works – and at the end of the meeting, we will give you a “game-plan,” so that you will know what you must do to reach your goals.

Unlike most firms, we do not limit our initial consultation to one hour. Instead, we will sit with you for as long as it takes to provide the information you need. We’ll start by having you tell us about your situation, your concerns, and your goals. We’ll ask many questions so we can learn about the facts of your matter, your family history, and your current problems. And we’ll patiently listen to you and answer your questions. The topics discussed will include the following:

  • We will talk to you about the law pertaining to your case;
  • We will explain your legal rights;
  • We will discuss how the court process works, how long it takes, what documents must be filed; what information must be disclosed; what hearings are held, and how the judge views a dispute like yours;
  • Then we will discuss Mediation and other options for peaceful resolution of your dispute, such as Conciliation Services, Court-Ordered Settlement Conferences, or Direct Negotiations between the parties and their attorneys; as well as other healthy alternatives.
  • We will talk to you about the cost of litigation, and we’ll give you a range of what your legal fees might be;
  • And at the end of the consultation, we’ll give you a “Game Plan” so that when you walk out of the meeting, you’ll have an understanding of what must be done, and the steps that you can take to reach your goals.

An initial conference with an attorney is a critical step in the process of finding a solution to your problem. This is where you begin, for the first time, to put together a “road map” of where you want to go and how to get there. By the time you leave our office after your first consultation, you should have a much better understanding of your legal rights; how the court process works; what your options are; and what you will need to do to reach your goals and resolve your problem.

Gary, Hanna, and Logan are strong, compassionate, and experienced attorneys who care about their clients and work hard to find solutions to difficult problems.

Countless people have walked into our office timid and afraid, and left armed with knowledge and a sense of renewed confidence.

Client Reviews

Very honest

November 2009 I retained Mr. Frank almost two years to represent me in a visitation modification filed by my ex-husband. Mr. Frank quickly and efficiently became familiar with my case and was very honest about all the potential results that could occur. I truly feel that Mr. Frank had my children’s best interests in mind…
