What To Expect At Your First Consultation With Me
Many New York residents never expect to have a major legal issue until one catches them off guard. When you face a potentially life-changing situation, trusting a stranger can be tough.
My goal at Kurt T. Richards, P.C., is to give you total reassurance that I am on your side, actively working toward the best possible outcome for you. At your first consultation, you can meet me and get answers to your questions.
I Will Be Honest And Down-To-Earth
You should never feel intimidated by your own attorney, nor should your attorney give you a reason to distrust them. I work hard to ensure that my clients have a good experience — not only at the first consultation but also every step of the way.
I will talk to you as a real person: with honesty, humor and compassion. I will ask the difficult questions and explain any difficult truths. You should have complete information about your case, and I will not hold back when you need to know about the risks.
How To Prepare For Your Meeting
Ultimately, when you encounter a legal issue, you should speak with a lawyer as soon as possible in your case. I remain responsive to incoming calls for that reason.
In urgent situations, such as an arrest, you may not have time to prepare any information about your case; that is just fine. I will guide you to figure out the next steps.
Regardless of the type of challenges you face, you can prepare for our first meeting by thinking about the outcome you want. Your needs and goals will depend on the specific legal issue you have.
Your priorities might include avoiding jail time, retaining custody of your children or keeping the peace in divorce. Whatever your main concerns might be, I will customize my counsel to your goals.
Your First Consultation Is Free
When you need help, I am available. I will answer you within the same day that you contact me. At Kurt T. Richards, P.C., I also minimize the waiting time between your call and your appointment. Call 718-720-1000 or email my firm in Staten Island to discuss your case.
