I strongly encourage potential new clients to initiate contact by using the questionnaire below or by email, rather than by telephone. This will result in a faster response and consultation. I personally handle all stages of new client case screening. Evaluating a case for legal malpractice properly and efficiently is an advanced lawyer skill and does not delegate well. Because I am frequently absorbed in my work for existing clients for long stretches, I am usually unavailable to answer calls from potential new clients except when scheduled in advance, and voicemail retrieval is slow and sometimes delayed. However, I review all of my written messages on a daily basis, so your written communication will be reviewed promptly.
