If you have come to the point where you are considering contacting an attorney you are probably at a stressful time in your life. You may not be ready to hire an attorney, but would like to consult with me to discuss your options and rights. The initial consultation fee is $100 for the first 30 minutes. At the Law Office of Amy York Garrett, I charge $100 for a consultation. I can discuss the general procedures for your type of case. However, I recommend that you make a list of questions prior to the appointment to discuss your specific circumstances with me. Your communication with me is privileged and protected by the attorney/client relationship. Obtaining information and knowing your rights helps you to make an informed decision.
