PLEASE READ CAREFULLY & SIGN BELOW:
Following your initial consultation with the attorney, if you agree to hire the attorney, and the attorney agrees to represent you, you will both sign a Fee Agreement. The Fee Agreement will set forth the terms and conditions of attorney’s representation. BEADVISED: This office does not represent you with regard to the issue(s)/matter(s) set forth by you herein in this Initial Consultation Form and/or discussed during your Initial Consultation unless and until, both you and the attorney execute a written Fee Agreement (and pay any retainer required thereunder as set forth in the Fee Agreement) and/or execute a Substitution of Attorney, if applicable.
If the attorney is willing to represent you and you decide not to sign a Fee Agreement today, you are strongly urged to schedule a second appointment with the attorney at the earliest possible time, or to immediately consult with other legal counsel to protect your rights. If your legal issue(s)/matter(s) involve(s) a potential lawsuit, it is important that you realize a lawsuit must be filed within a certain period of time called a Statute of Limitations. Failure to follow the timeline proscribed within the Statute of Limitations may result in you being unable to obtain any relief regarding the issue(s)/matter(s) for which you are seeking legal advice.
If the attorney does not agree to represent you, the attorney will not disclose this information or or any other content you may discuss with the Attorney during your initial consultation. The attorney’s decision not to represent you should not be taken by you as an expression regarding the merits of your case. As indicated herein above, you do need to be mindful of the Statute of Limitations that may potentially affect your ability to obtain relief.
YOUR SIGNATURE BELOW ONLY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED THIS INFORMATION SHEET; AND DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE HIRED THE ATTORNEY TO REPRESENT YOU.
