1.  Question: What are your normal office hours?
Answer: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Eastern Time), Monday through Friday.  We close on major US holidays.

2.  Question: Do you ever schedule evening or weekend appointments?
Answer: The attorney is flexible in scheduling early morning or late afternoon appointments, if the client has no other scheduling options.  Absent extraordinary circumstances, the attorney generally does not set appointments in the evening or on weekends.

3.  Question: How do I contact the attorney to make an appointment?
Answer: Call 954-792-6800 during office hours, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday, to make an appointment.  If you are are a first time client, the attorney will speak to you briefly on the phone to discuss your matter with you before an appointment is scheduled.

3.1 Question: Do you offer a free initial consultation?
Answer: There is generally a small fee for the initial consultation. I make an effort to spend as much time as is necessary to discuss and evaluate your legal issue(s) during that initial consultation, so that you do not have any concern about having received a fair amount of legal service in exchange for the consultation fee. Please ask the attorney for the exact amount of the consultation fee you will be charged when you make your first appointment.

4.  Question: Does the attorney provide legal advice online or via email?
Answer: No.  An in-person appointment is almost always the preferred method to discuss a legal issue with a new client.   The information on this website is not, nor is it intended to be legal advice.

5.  Question: Can I hire the attorney by sending him an email?
Answer: No.   Hiring an attorney is an important matter.  Often the decision to hire an attorney is time sensitive, and any delay can hurt your case.  Additionally, the attorney must agree to represent you in your particular matter and a written fee agreement must be agreed to and signed.   Also, email is not 100% reliable in today’s environment, with spam filters, etc.

6.  Question: Can I send an email to the attorney, and assume he will start working on my legal issue?
Answer: No.  As reflected above, you can not retain the attorney via email, and you must schedule an appointment to discuss the attorney’s potential representation of you in a legal matter.

7. Question: Once I retain the lawyer, have met with him, and have a signed a fee agreement, then can I communicate with him via email?
Answer: Yes, many our our clients prefer email.  We can communicate with you via fax, email, or regular US Mail.  We will meet with you in the office or via telephone when required.   Before you start sending us email, however, let us know you intend to do so.  This will let us put you on our email “white list” so our email filters do not block your email correspondence.

8.  Question: What is an RSS Feed (referred to near the  bottom of the right column of this website), and how do I use this?
Answer: RSS (”Really Simple Syndication” or “Rich Site Summary,” depending on your source) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.  Frankly, this feature may not be extremely useful on a website, such as this, where the content does not change frequently.  However, this option is available on this website, should you choose to use it.  There is quite a bit of technical information on the Internet about using RSS feeds.  If you are interested try looking at a more in depth disscusson of RSS try looking at the description on Wikepedia or on K_Line Christian Online.
