We do not release information about our clients or cases because the information is often privileged and confidential.
Yes. In nearly all situations, we offer free initial consultations to potential clients.
During the initial consultation we advise the client of the fee arrangement for their case. If there is an applicable discount through an employee benefit program, we advise the client of the discount available to them at that time.
We provide information about our hourly rates during the initial consultation.
Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Mr. Kumor speaks fluent Polish.
In some cases, we are able to assist a client with one part of a case, without taking on the whole case. Although, it would depend on the nature of the cases and specific circumstances.
We routinely divide work between the partners and our staff in an effort to provide the most cost-effective representation for our clients.
We provide pro bono legal representation in some cases, which is decided at the initial consultation. It is entirely the decision of the partner in charge of the case whether the case will be pro bono.
We believe that a client should be actively involved in the progress of preparing their case through resolution of the matter. Therefore, we make a genuine effort to ensure that our clients are aware of the current status of their case and we try to involve the client in next step decisions, wherever possible.
We encourage our clients to educate themselves on the legal issues they are facing, so that they can better understand their options and make informed decisions.
We are willing to review documents prepared by clients where we believe it will be helpful with handling their case.
During the initial client consultation, we review the preliminary facts of a client's case to discuss the best option for the client. The initial bankruptcy consultation usually takes at least one hour, where we provide counsel on alternatives and the process involved with both a Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 case. In some cases, it may be prudent for a client to continue without the assistance of an attorney. Although, we generally cannot continue to provide counsel to a client after the consultation, if they decide not to retain us, as it is often not helpful and/or unethical for us to do so.
