“…But everyone else offers a free consultation. Why should I pay you?”

Dear Potential Client:

Thanks so much for giving me this opportunity to explain why I charge for our Strategy Sessions.

As Abraham Lincoln said, “A lawyer’s time and advice is his stock and trade.” What I have to offer you is my experience, time, and expertise. Many lawyers, good lawyers, are willing to give away some of that time hoping to attract your attention. That’s pretty effective, isn’t it?

Attorneys who offer free consultations meet with many potential clients who are ready to learn how to get a handle on their finances. But they also get a lot of people who are looking for free advice or who just don’t bother to show up. If you were to miss a doctor’s appointment, you’d be charged for it, right?

I charge for Strategy Sessions for the same reason your doctor charges for your visit. Plus, it discourages “no shows” and people who have no intention of hiring the firm. It’s only $50, but it effectively ensures we’ll have time to review your issues and form a game plan tailored just for you. After that, if you hire the Law Firm, we won’t bill separately for additional conferences no matter how much time they take.

Regardless of whether you choose me or one of my capable competitors, I wish you peace, abundance, and financial stability. But I hope you’ll give me the opportunity to show you how my expertise and my firm’s outstanding customer service can smooth your path to financial freedom.

I am incredibly lucky. After more than 25 years as a bankruptcy and consumer lawyer, I am focusing my practice on what I enjoy most: researching and writing briefs, motions, pleadings, articles, online content, and other media, and helping other attorneys efficiently utilize their resources.
