Services

Let's See Who We Serve

We serve individuals seeking private, affordable, accessible legal defense within Yavapai County.

 

We have an unbiased approach to filling the GAP in services between the Yavapai County Public Defender's Office and Community Legal Services of Arizona. Most people are not entitled to the assistance of a public defender in misdemeanor cases where jail time is not required by law, yet those charges can have significant consequences in and out of the court setting. CLS does not provide help in criminal cases but does for some types of civil cases. CLS can't help people who make more than a certain amount.

 

We don't care what you make and can help in those situations where you might not have legal help otherwise. 

Let's See Our Process

Step 1: Contact Me or Book Online 

Step 2: We talk, either on the phone or in-person. Lets see my services are right for you. 

Step 3: If I am able to help you, I will walk you through how to hire me.
Step 4: If I am unable to help you, I will give you some alternative resources to contact. 

Step 5: If you end up hiring me, I will fight for the best outcome I can. I will make sure to explain the process as we go.  

Let's Explain Our Services

Initial Consultation

Let's see if my services are the right fit for you.

This is a call or meeting to talk for the first time generally about what you are looking for and whether I am able to help you with those needs.

 

I plan to listen to your story, review your paperwork, if any, and ask you some questions. I do NOT promise any legal advice at this point about your case. This meeting on its own does NOT create an attorney-client relationship but I am obligated to maintain confidentiality and abide by other ethical rules.

 

If I decide that I want to take your case, then I will review my fee agreement and prices with you. We would then schedule another time to talk more in detail about your case.

 

If I decide that I am not able at this time to take your case, then I would give you a list of other attorneys or resources to try for help in your area.

One Hour Detailed Meeting

You just want one hour of my time after initial consultation.

This is for those circumstances where you want my opinion and advice but don't want to employ me just yet as your attorney.
