Initial Consultation with Family Law Attorney & Mediator Erin N. Birt



Most people who want my advice and legal help have many questions.  To best introduce you to the way I and my team work, as well as to answer your questions and learn about your legal goals, I offer a one-hour consultation via Zoom or Microsoft Teams. The cost of this consultation is $300.00 which can be paid by credit card to confirm your appointment. Our office will send you a payment link via email and the payment link is also available here. Once the payment is processed and confirmed by our firm, and the requested e-forms are completed by you, our office will share the Zoom or Teams details with you. 

Our friendly staff are also available to help you with Zoom or Teams prior to the consultiation.  Karen would be happy to spend 15 minutes performing a test Zoom or Teams call or you can find more information about Zoom here.

We will spend 30 minutes face-to-face in a meeting and the firm will spend 20-30 minutes reviewing your case and the information you submit to our office prior to the consult.  If you feel you need more time with our firm, please contact our office to schedule a longer meeting.

 During our time together, we can discuss the following:

  1. Why you need my help, what your major concerns are, and what outcomes you are hoping to achieve.
  2. Although I do accept engagements that parties might initially feel require adversarial court litigation, over 90% of my clients are able to reach satisfactory settlements and never see the inside of a courtroom. I will discuss the various lawyering roles I offer to achieve this result.
  3. The roles of my team and how they can help you reach your legal goals and communicate frequently with you.
  4. The tools we use unique to our family law firm that help you understand your case and the status of your case.
  5. How out of court settlements become binding and enforceable.
  6. How final agreements get drafted and filed with the court.
  7. How your finances and other details of your life can remain confidential.
  8. How to minimize your legal fees and how they are estimated.
  9. The next steps and timing for starting our work together (which requires a signed contract and the payment of a flat fee or retainer.)

We look forward to scheduling your consultation and learning more about you and your legal goals.  Please feel free to contact us to schedule or learn more.
