Note to Potential Clients:
Now accepting a limited number of divorce and domestic relations clients
I am a solo practitioner. When you call for an appointment, you will either speak directly to me or reach my assistant or my voice mail. If you reach my voice mail, please leave a message with your name, a brief explanation of why you’re calling, and your telephone number. I will call you back as soon as possible.
My office address is 2700 Corporate Drive, Suite 200, Birmingham, Alabama 35242. I can also make arrangements to meet you at one of the four other Regus facilities in the Birmingham area. Outside of Birmingham, I will arrange to meet you in a Regus center in your city if one is available, in another law firm’s offices, or elsewhere.
The cost for an initial consultation for most legal matters is one hundred dollars, payable by cash, check, or credit card at the time the appointment is made. The consultation fee is non-refundable (except in contingency fee litigation) but will be applied as a credit if we proceed. The initial consultation usually lasts around forty-five minutes but may take longer. I cannot offer free legal advice or consultation by telephone.
