I aim to make legal services accessible to my clients whenever needed and engagement possible over the internet. I am always as close as your telephone and computer. “Representation Made Easy” will save you travel time and inconvenience — you will not have to take time off from work, or away from your business, to consult or retain an attorney. Experienced, qualified counsel is literally just a phone call away.
When you need legal advice or representation – call me at 818-971-9409. No matter what your legal matter, chances are I have successfully represented clients in similar situations. My goal is to provide the legal counsel or representation you need, consistent with your objectives and budgetary constraints, for a reasonable affordable fee.
During a confidential initial telephone consultation we can determine if I am able to help. In situations where a document review will help me decide if I can be of service, or is required because of the nature of your legal matter, I may ask you to forward documents in a single PDF file attached to an email. If so, I will review the documents upon receipt, and then call you to further discuss the case, quote a retainer, and discuss fees and other terms for my recommended services. I reserve the right, depending on the matter and the type of assistance you are seeking, to charge a reasonable agreed fee for document review, legal analysis, and any further consultation.
Depending on your legal matter and objectives, I may suggest limited scope representation as a means to keep legal services affordable and within your budget. Limited scope representation may be suitable when, for example, a response to a lawsuit is due but you do not have sufficient financial resources to fund a litigation retainer. In that circumstance, I may recommend that I prepare an appropriate agreed response for you to avoid your default and to protect your legal right to defend yourself. This may give you the time you need to gather additional financial resources, or to develop a strategy to resolve the matter upon terms that are acceptable to you. Or, perhaps, I should continue to provide additional limited, discrete legal services on a fee for service basis.
If we agree on the terms of my engagement, I will confirm our agreement in an email (if anticipated legal fees and costs are $1000 or less) or forward a written attorney-client agreement, signed by me, to you for your review and signature. Upon receipt of the executed agreement, agreed retainer, and a completed Internet Client Intake Form I will take the steps necessary to represent you and protect your interests. Clients may rely on My Promises to Clients.
My engagement, and in many cases even my legal services, can be completed quickly over the internet — all without you taking 2-4 hours from your day to meet with me in my office. Payment for legal services can be made online through LawPay with your Visa®, MasterCard®, Discover®, or American Express® accounts, or via PayPal or Chase QuickPay. Pay Online links are on the sidebar, Fees page.
Documents can be forwarded to me electronically as an email attachment or, for large files, using the free DropSend service. Documents forwarding instructions can be downloaded here. For further information regarding my policies, practices, and procedures you are invited to consult the FAQs, Virtual Lawyer and Technology pages. For information about me and the the types of matters I accept, consult the About and My Practice pages and my Avvo Answers.
If you are unable to afford legal services, links to self-help and low and no cost legal services are on the Self-Help page. If you have a general legal question and seek an answer free of charge, go to my Avvo page.
