What will happen during my initial consultation?
First we ask you why you have come to see us. After you explain your problem, we will point out any laws or legal procedures that will be involved in handling the matter for you. You should feel free to ask any questions you have about your problems or the law. During this first visit we will also discuss what the fees will be. Although the exact amount cannot be determined in advance, we can at least explain how the fee will be calculated. You will then be asked to sign an Attorney's Retainer Agreement that explains the costs and fees involved and the rights you have during the course of our legal representation.

How are Attorney's fees determined?
Many of the services we provide during the course of our legal representation of you are performed on your behalf and in your absence. This usually includes the preparation of documents, court appearances and meetings. In most cases, the documents prepared or advice given to you follows many hours of preparation work.


Our fees are determined in one of three ways:
1. A flat fee basis, for handling a particular type of matter;
2. A percentage basis of the recovery involved; or
3. An hourly basis.

Can I trust my Attorney with a confidential matter?
Your relationship with Greenberg & Greenberg creates what is called an "Attorney-Client Privilege". Without your consent, we cannot reveal anything that you say as part of that relationship. No court or other authority can force us to violate that confidence. It is absolutely essential that you provide us with all the facts relating to your case - BOTH FAVORABLE AND UNFAVORABLE. Unless you are completely honest, we will be unable to represent you properly. We will, in turn, keep you advised of all important developments in your case.
