That Scary First Call to a Divorce Lawyer

We know how hard it is to make the first phone call to a divorce lawyer.

divorce-initial-phone-callMost clients report great hesitancy at the thought of making this call. Many tell us later that they dialed, froze, and hung up a few times before actually letting the call go through.

Some said they were scared they might reach a pushy fast-talker that would pressure them into doing something that they merely called to find out about.

Your discomfort is normal; and we do everything we can to make this part easier for you. We promise to greet you with understanding, discretion, and professional concern.

  • We do not charge for this call or email
  • Your problem is not too small
  • No question is too silly
  • We are never too busy to spend some time with you
  • We do not pressure you to file or to hire us
  • We are definitely not too expensive

The way we see it, your first visit to our office is not where you take action, it is where you learn what you have to learn in case you ever do decide to take action.

We know you are on a fact-finding mission and we want you to have adequate opportunity to digest things and think them through. You will tell us when and if you are ready to take action, not the other way around.

We will carefully explain what you need to know at a pace that is comfortable for you
