At Cooley & Handy, our consultations generally take between one to two hours. We explain the law to you in detail and how it impacts your case, and we devise a general plan for you on how you should proceed. We also answer all of your questions. We charge $250 for our consultations because our time is valuable and we provide you a substantial amount of information and advice. Don’t be fooled by attorneys who offer “free” consultations, which are generally just sales pitches disguised as advice.
