Our Mission Statement

    The purpose of the initial telephone consultation is for the lawyer to evaluate whether the expert candidate is sufficiently qualified to testify on the issues of the case at hand. There is ordinarily no charge for an initial telephone consultation with our office, as 30 minutes is customarily allotted without any charge.

    Should you wish to discuss the substantive issues of your case in detail, whereby we are “working the case” beyond 30 minutes and providing technical, discovery and strategic advice, the consultation is subject to an hourly charge payable by credit card, or by retaining the expert for the case.
