How Do I Get Started?
For all clients, we start our process with telephone intakes, and then proceed (if necessary) to telephone or video consultations. In-person appointments will be limited, but we prioritize these appointments for clients who do not have ongoing access to the phone/internet, and/or clients who need to receive legal documents.
If you’d like to make an appointment, please call us or send an email. Para comenzar, llame o envíe un correo electrónico. Please leave a message stating your full name, phone number, and a brief description of how we can help. When returning calls, please note our number may appear as blocked or private; all legal services are confidential.
