Initial Consultations


Cascade Pacific Law PLLC will charge you for your initial consultation unless your lawyer determines that the consultation will be included in a fixed fee arrangement. The fees for initial consultations are otherwise based on the amount of time you spend with your lawyer and any time your lawyer has spent in preparing for the consultation. You should bring all documents relevant to the matter you wish to discuss with you to your initial consultation.

If you dropped off, mailed, emailed or faxed documents and information prior to your initial appointment, you should be aware that your lawyer may not have been able to schedule time to review the information in detail prior to your consultation. If you should miss your appointment without rescheduling it, your documents will be available for pick-up for one month.

You will be asked to pay before you leave unless you make other arrangements with your lawyer at the beginning of your initial consultation.

You may also call the office to arrange an initial consultation by telephone.
