Talk to Tom...
Use the form below to generally tell us about your legal inquiry, and we’ll call you back to schedule an appointment. Whether there is actual, threatened or potential litigation, or you need help with your business or personal matters, we first just need to know the names of all potential parties so that we can ensure we have no conflict in the representation. If we represent a party adverse to you and you then all information provided before we have a written engagement will be used for representing our client. Please do not send us any documents until we have an agreement to represent you. You may also email or call us to make an appointment. Our general response time is one business day.

There is never a fee for an initial consultation. Every engagement will be in writing, so that our arrangement is clearly understood.
Depending on the engagement, we offer an hourly rate or a flat rate or a contingency-fee arrangement. Lawyers and paralegals keep detailed logs of the time spent for each client. For hourly rate engagement, we typically count in six or fifteen minute increments and bill monthly for professional time and pre-paid expenses. Certain invoices for expenses will be forwarded to the client for direct payment within 30 days; otherwise, expenses will be included in the next monthly invoice. If we are working for a flat fee or on a contingency fee basis, sometimes we will be responsible for pre-paid expenses, and that will be clearly stated on our written engagement.
We never charge for facsimile or long distance telephone calls made within the United States.
