Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve never worked with a lawyer before… where do I begin?
The first step to moving forward with legal representation is to schedule an initial consultation with one of our three attorneys. You may do so by calling our office at (206) 452-5483. Our office is open during traditional business hours.
How much time will I need with a lawyer?
For most Family Law matters, the initial consultation lasts approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours and costs $150. Amy Phillips additionally practices Estate Planning, Employment, Tax, Adoption and Dependency Law and offers a 20-minute phone consultation free of charge for these matters.
These first meetings are important because they will help both you and the attorney get a better understanding of your case so that they may provide you with effective legal advice. After a quick and confidential conflict check, we can move forward with scheduling the consultation and compassionately help you with the legal process.
After your initial consultation, we will have a better estimate of the time we will need to complete your case, barring unforeseen developments or circumstances, and the range of possible costs depending on outcome. When unexpected issues arise, we will notify you of their implications and work with you every step of the way to make sure your priorities are being met.
