Brief Consultation for Family Lawyers

If you are a family lawyer, feeling stuck with a challenging situation or client, you are welcome to call to chat for a brief informal consultation. These conversations typically take 5 to 30 minutes. 

Please note, if I do not already know you, I will do a credential check to be assured the caller isn't calling on one's own behalf for a personal issue, but truly is a lawyer calling on a professional matter.  

Just to remind, I am not offering litigation support. This is a closed and informal process directed to helping problem solve matters towards the goal of settlement and the well being of children. 

Fee: $400.00 per hour, billing for actual time used..

Even great lawyers need support sometimes.  Call or email to discuss your consultation needs:
