"Total cost of our services" means our full fixed/flat fee or our full initial retainer fee. In the event we authorize payment arrangements on your case, the aforementioned credit shall be applied against the total fee, not your first or any subsequent payment. This credit shall not apply to any expenses which we anticipate incurring or may incur on your file.

NO GUARANTEE AS TO THE AVAILABILITY OF CONSULTATION APPOINTMENTS: We cannot guarantee any appointments for initial consultations. In rare circumstances, we may decline to schedule an initial consultation. Typical reasons include, but are not limited to: 1) our unavailability / time constraints on our part; 2) there is a conflict of interest which would prohibit us from meeting with a particular individual; or, 3) other factors beyond our control.

Under the terms and conditions of our offer(s) to schedule an appointment for an initial consultation, we are not required to visit any inmate in a correctional facility, half-way house, residential treatment program, etc. We may agree to do so, but certain terms and conditions may apply.

LIMITATIONS ON INITIAL CONSULTATIONS / REQUIREMENTS FOR FORMATION OF AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP: An initial consultation is an opportunity for you to describe the facts and circumstances of your claim or case to us, and for us to evaluate your claim or case. You should expect to receive a preliminary determination from us as to whether or not we would be willing to undertake representation on your behalf, an estimate of our fees and costs, and an anticipated time frame for completion of your case. Nothing said or communicated to you during an initial consultation should be construed as legal advice, nor are you entitled to rely on it as such. We may make general recommendations as to procedure, or perhaps communicate generalized information or provide commentary about the applicability of various legal statutes or procedural requirements to your particular claim or case; however, these communications do not constitute legal advice. In the event you have asked us to render a formal legal opinion on any subject or matter, we will require a fee to do so and any such opinion will be provided to you in writing. In no event shall any verbal commentary substitute for a formal, written legal opinion. Restated, unless you receive a formal, written legal opinion from us, you are not entitled to claim that one has been provided by us to you. Absent receiving a formal, written legal opinion from us, you are not otherwise entitled to act (or omit action) in reliance on any communication from or by an attorney, agent, or employee of this Firm.

 

Specifically, this provision shall apply to: procedural requirements of any Court of administrative or quasi-administrative agency, or compliance therewith; interpretations or applicability of contractual provisions; the admissibility or characterization of evidence; the applicability (or lack thereof) of any statutes of limitiation or repose; any issues relating to time limitations for appeal or filing of motions; the viability of any legal claim or defense; the legality of any particular act or omission, or of any proposed act or omission; requirements relating to the proper or necessary parties to a lawsuit; any issues related to personal or subject matter jurisdiction; the applicability of any State or Federal statutes or administrative regulations to your claim or case; and/or the existence of evidentiary or procedural grounds (or lack thereof) for any motions or appeals. Your initial consultation is for "limited evaluation purposes" only, and does not serve to form the basis for an attorney-client relationship with this Firm, or with any attorney or member of this Firm.

 

Formation of an attorney-client relationship will require our agreement to undertake representation; execution of a formal, written Fee Agreement by you (and counter-signed by an authorized member of this Firm); and, tender of your initial fee payment under the terms of the Fee Agreement. To the extent that your written Fee Agreement conflicts with any portion of this Disclaimer, the Fee Agreement shall take precedence and supercede the language herein.
