Ready to give your business a quick jumpstart or tune-up?

Why would I pay for a legal consultation with you? I thought lawyers usually give free consultations.

Answer: Want the reality? A “free" legal consultation typically will just be a sales pitch for an attorney or paralegal to sell you on hiring their firm and paying them a large retainer.  If you book a “free” consultation, you won't actually get any specific legal advice. Instead, these meetings are designed to warm you up to the firm (and a large retainer). 

Our legal consults are not simply sales pitches.  You will come away from our session with valuable knowledge and a strategy to proceed. 

Why do you host your consultations virtually?

Answer: Our typical client is a busy entrepreneur. Within the last year especially, we've all come to see virtual consultations as a convenient (and yes, modern) way to accommodate those who don't always have time to be physically present at an office. We use the latest technology and communication methods to work when you work, so you don't have to waste time commuting. Hard-working entrepreneurs need flexibility, so we offer our legal services whether you're near or far.

If you prefer an in-person meeting, we're happy to accommodate you, depending on our attorneys' availability and schedule. Please email [email protected] to make in-person arrangements.

What if I schedule this consult and there's no way for a Business Law Group attorney to help me? 

Answer: No, that won't happen. We don't accept clients for initial legal consultations who don't fit into our core practice areas or if we are aware of a conflict of interest.  If we become aware of a conflict of interest during our consult, any consult fee will be refunded.  We'll only confirm and accept your legal consult if you're a good fit for our attorneys' areas of expertise and we believe we can address your situation.

Can you take my case on a contingency fee basis?

Answer: Most likely, no. We do accept some employee-side employment law matters on a contingency basis, if we believe the employee has a demonstratively good case. Since we're committed civil rights advocates, our ideal employee client understands that the odds are stacked against him or her—and is truthful, compelling, responsive and resolved to enter into battle alongside us. 

Our favorite employee cases address:

  • Unequal pay for women
  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Retaliation for reporting any of the above.

If you'd like your employment case to be considered by our firm, please complete our intake questionnaire. We'll waive the initial consult fee for any potential client who submits the intake questionnaire to have us review your case. In the event that we can't take your employment law case on a contingency basis, we can offer a reduced hourly rate and/or advise you on how to handle the matter pro se (on your own in court).
