There’s so many things that people ask me when they first come in. My goal is to try to get them to be as comfortable as they possibly can in a very difficult situation that they’re already in. And it’s nerve-wracking, I’m sure, coming to meet an attorney just like it is for us to go to a doctor for a problem that we have. So when they come in I try to ask them to please settle down and we’re just going to have a conversation. And my first consultation is free so that we can talk through their situation and I can help them with whatever immediate problem they have. So really, I tell clients constantly just calm down and let me help you.
