Frequently Asked Questions

Below you can find answers to the most commonly asked questions we are asked.

  • How can I schedule an initial consultation?


The easiest way to schedule an initial consultation is to call the office at (626) 301-9327 or (626) 301-4440 and ask a legal assistant to schedule one for you.  

  • Can I schedule a consultation or meeting after 5:00 p.m. or on the weekend?


Yes. Please call our office and a legal assistant will schedule a time that is convenient for you.

  • Can I schedule a same day consultation?


Yes. Please call our office and a legal assistant will schedule a time that is convenient for you.

  • How do I get to your office from the freeway?


We are located in Arcadia, CA on Foothill Blvd., just East of Pasadena near the Santa Anita Park. Take the 210 Freeway to the Santa Anita off-ramp. Turn North towards the mountains. At the first traffic light, Foothill Blvd., turn right. We are past Second Avenue on the right hand side in the middle of the block at 234 E. Foothill Blvd. Street parking is free. We are directly across from Ralphs and Walgreens.


  • What happens at the initial consultation?


At your consultation, we get straight to work. We answer all of your questions and develop a plan of action to accomplish your goals. It is not unusual for us to give you advice, make a phone call, or draft a letter at the initial consultation that either solves your problem or gives you the information you need to take action to protect yourself.


We normally insist on an in-office consultation because over the years, we have realized that we can do a much more comprehensive analysis, discover additional issues that you may not have been aware of, and gain a far better appreciation for your needs and goals by meeting in-person. You simply cannot gather enough information in a five or ten-minute phone call.


To get the most out of it, bring all documents you believe could be relevant, and arrive fifteen minutes early to complete a short consultation form.



  • How do much do you charge for an initial consultation?


We charge $95 for the 60 minute consultation, rather than our normal $395.00 hourly rate. If you hire us at the initial consultation, we waive the fee and apply it to your retainer agreement.  

  • What are your payment methods?


We accept debit cards, credit cards, checks, and cash. 

  • What are your payment options?


We do retainer agreements, flat fee agreements, and contingency agreements.

  • Do you do Pro Bono work?


Unfortunately, we do not.

  • What are your hours?


Our normal business hours are 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. weekdays.
