The Power of Paying for a Consultation
If you already spent time looking for an attorney to represent your case, you probably came across several law firms that provide free initial consultations. With the number of offices that offer complimentary sessions, you might be wondering why anyone would choose to pay for a consultation when there are other options available. The problem with free consultations is, as the old adage goes, you are getting exactly what you pay for.
What Is the Difference Between a Free Consultation and a Paid Consultation?
Oftentimes, free case reviews are more of a sales pitch, trying to convince you to hire a firm’s services, instead of an informative meeting that sheds light on your current situation. The advice you receive will likely be insubstantial and the time you spend together will be limited.
On the other hand, when you pay for a consultation, your prospective attorney will listen to the details of your case and go over:
- The facts
- Existing orders
- And any other pertinent information that might be relevant to its outcome
During this time, you will also get a better understanding of your rights within the context of your case and the information you provide. Understanding your rights is crucial for knowing which steps to take next and what your legal options might be as you move forward or, more importantly, if you have legal options.
Whatever the circumstances might be, you will have a thorough understanding of your case and the various possible outcomes after this initial consultation. Unlike a free consultation, a paid consultation is not a sales pitch. Instead, your prospective attorney will ensure you leave this session empowered with vital information.
In some cases, this might not lead to a happy outcome, especially if you find that your options are not what you hoped for. However, you will not be led down the wrong path when you consult with an attorney who is interested in providing high-quality legal services that can make a difference in your future.
You should leave a paid consultation with your questions answered and a comprehension of your situation and all available options. Anything less is a waste of your time, regardless if it was free. A free consultation might not cost you any money, but it will cost precious time that you might not have.
