What To Expect At Your First Consultation
If you’re like most people, setting up an appointment with a law firm can feel a bit intimidating. After all, how do you know what to expect? You’ve probably never needed the services of a lawyer before.
At Hof & Reid LLC, we understand your concerns. Let us assure you that we’re truly here to help, not to hinder. Our goal is the same as yours: to help you recover and move on with life after a serious injury or the loss of a loved one.
Here are a few frequently asked questions about the first consultation with us:
- Where is your office located?
Our office is in Bethlehem, which is centrally located in the Lehigh Valley. We are right off Route 33 and easily accessible from several major highways.
- What if I’m too injured to travel to your office?
Our office is handicapped accessible, but if your injuries prevent you from traveling at all, we would be more than happy to meet you at your home or at the hospital.
- Will I feel comfortable and respected?
Yes, we will work hard to set you at your ease and help you relax. We know that dealing with a serious injury is a very stressful and frightening experience for most people, so we go out of our way to provide caring, down-to-earth service. We will also explain any legal information in a clear, understandable way.
- If I meet with one of your attorneys, am I obligated to hire him or her?
No, you’re under no obligation to hire us, and we’ll never pressure you into signing any agreement. The first, free consultation is simply a chance to learn more about your rights and your options. Ultimately, you decide how you want to proceed.
- How much do your services cost?
Because we handle personal injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, you owe us nothing at all until we successfully resolve your case. Then, our fee is deducted from the verdict or settlement you receive. This means you don’t have to worry about finding the money to pay us, and you can leave your checkbook at home when you come talk to us.
