Request a Free Consultation to Find Out What Your Options Are
If you need representation and are unsure what to do, a good first step is to set up a free consultation with Eric Rice. This is intended to be a relaxed discussion about your situation and your options.
What is a free consultation?
The consultation is relaxed and informal, and you are not obligated to retain Eric or pay anything if you decide not to retain him.
A free consultation is a meeting where you can learn about the judicial process and how a lawyer can help. Eric can give you general information about what your options are and allow you to make informed decision about what you want to do. The consultation is relaxed and informal, and you are not obligated to retain Eric or pay anything if you decide not to retain him. Although you won’t receive specific legal advice, a free consultation is great way to learn how the process works and determine what is most important to ensure you get the best result.
Why is a free consultation important?
A free consultation is your chance to determine how your matter will be handled. Do you need an attorney? If so, how do you select a good one? How much will the matter cost? You can get the answers to these questions by speaking with Eric. A criminal charge can have a dramatic and lasting impact on your life and it’s important that you make informed, well-though decisions at the outset to ensure that it is handled to your satisfaction.
What do you need for a free consultation?
A free consultation is relaxed and informal, so nothing is required. However, any pertinent information about your case is helpful. So, bring along any documents related to your case, including a ticket, complaint, or notice of court date if you have them.
What happens after a free consultation?
After the consultation, Eric will provide a quote for your matter to allow you to retain him as your attorney. If you decide to move forward, Eric will provide a retainer agreement to allow for official representation. Once retained, Eric will manage your matter, act as your attorney, and provide legal advice regarding your best next steps. If, however, you decide not to retain Eric, there is no obligation, and you are free to find another attorney or proceed without an attorney.
