Over the course of a free consultation, an attorney will typicallydiscuss the specific facts of your matter and how those facts relate to general legal principles and causes of actions. During paid consultations, our attorneys will review information and/or documentation provided by you beforehand and render specific legal advice regarding said information.
For prospective clients looking for specific advice prior to legal representation beginning, or even as a precursor to seeking legal representation, our firm offers paid consultations over the phone, in-person & virtually in various areas of law.
You can learn more here about what happens during the initial consultation process.
Family Law Legal Consultations
Several aspects of family law are governed by specific statutory formulas used for calculating the parties’ respective support obligations. These statutory formulas include methods for calculating maintenance (formerly alimony) and child support. Each formula has certain nuances allowing for adjustments to the calculations which may ultimately result in adjustments to your respective statutory support obligation.
At O’Flaherty Law for example, prospective clients looking to understand or estimate their potential support obligations, we are happy to provide said calculations and an explanation of the same in a format preferred and commonly used by the courts.
Tenant’s Rights Consultations
Many tenants rights and obligations are governed by a lease agreement with their landlord and the agreement governs the landlord’s rights and obligations as well. When issues arise between a landlord and tenant in which the landlord seeks to evict the tenant (and potentially their family), the situation is typically emotionally charged as a family may be losing their home.
If you’re in a dispute with your landlord, whether pre-litigation or an eviction matter has commenced, we can offer a review of your lease agreement and provide an overview on what we feel is the best course of action for your matter moving forward.
Contract Review Consultations
Similar to the “Tenant’s Rights” above, parties to a business relationship, whether it be a contractual relationship, partnership relationship, or the like, occasionally experience an irreconcilable breakdown in the relationship which leads to the inability to complete the contract or the partnership to dissolve. In these situations, depending on the terms of the parties’ contract or agreement, litigation often ensues seeking damages allowable under the contract or agreement.
Business Dispute Consultations
If you’re in a dispute with a contractor or business partner, whether only a demand has been made or a lawsuit has been filed, we can offer a review of your contract, partnership agreement or the like in order to provide an overview on what we feel is the best course of action for your matter moving forward.
Property Record Searches
Our office can perform various property record searches and obtain requested documents such as deeds, liens or other encumbrances, tax bills, tax notices, etc. If you’re requesting property records, please call our office for an estimate of total costs as most counties will charge fees to process and provide copies of certain documents.
Phone & Remote Consultations
With ongoing concerns over the Coronovirus, though many courts have limited the matters they're seeing, many individuals and businesses still need their legal services looked after by an experienced professional. Free and paid consultations can oftentimes be taken care of without meeting an attorney face to face. Contract documents can be seen by an attorney and then discuss their reviews, recommendations and potential changes over the phone or through our legal virtual chat.
If you are looking for specific legal advice in an area of law that is not discussed in this article, please feel free to contact our office to determine if your legal issue qualifies for a paid consultation.
