I do not see my legal problem described above. Can you still help?
Perhaps. It really depends on what your legal problem is. If your problem is somewhat associated to the practice areas above, ask me. I may still be able to help. If your problem has to do with topics not generally associated with the practice areas described above, then it is likely that I cannot help you with your legal matter. However, as part of my extended legal network, I may know of a good team or person to assist you.
I am not sure I can use legal jargon to describe my problem. Does that matter?
When speaking with potential new clients, I ask them to put all legal jargon aside when explaining their legal problem to me. I find it best that potential new clients and I use plain English to discuss problems. This helps avoid confusion or misuse of legal terms, and provides clarity in initial communications concerning a potential representations and available legal solutions.
I have little time to explain my problem and need immediate assistance. Can I just call you to ask about my legal problem?
Absolutely. You’re welcome to call to discuss your legal matter. You’re also welcome to text a shorthand version of your matter where you have little time to get started. (619) 528-2202
