Case Evaluation, Consultation and Billing Policies and Procedures
Initial Case Evaluations
One (1) initial case evaluation based on pre-consultation intake form or specific question received through email. More complicated questions or requests for case evaluations may be narrowed at our discretion.
The first in-office or Skype consultation will be $100 / 30 mins, payment due at time of consult (prepaid for Skype/phone consultations. For immigration benefits cases, if we (JD Law Associates, LLC) and you (the prospective client) decide to enter into an engagement agreement to work on your case at time of this first consult, the consult fee will be applied towards your case fees. All removal cases require retainers and are billed at our hourly rate.
Any consultations requesting review of documents, will only be scheduled as part of or after a first in-office or Skype consult, above. We will not review documents as part of an initial case evaluation / question through email.
For Clients who are ready to move forward with their case
You will be quoted either a flat-fee cost or an hourly-fee cost projection for the work to be performed.
