Frequently Asked Questions
Hours of Operation
Q: What are Plaza Law Group's hours of operation?
A: Plaza Law Group's "official" business hours are Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and all regular consultations, meetings and appointments must generally be scheduled during those hours. However, the realities of the legal world require staff to work well beyond those hours each week. Our attorneys also recognize that our clients occasionally require flexibility in scheduling appointments, and in certain circumstances can arrange to meet with clients in their home or office after hours or on weekends when necessary.
Q: Does Plaza Law Group offer a free consultation to potential clients?
A: Plaza Law Group offers potential clients an initial telephone consultation at no charge. An available attorney will listen to your situation and ask questions to determine whether we can assist you before entering a formal attorney-client relationship. Anything you discuss with the attorney during this conversation is strictly confidential, regardless of whether you retain our services. Our personal injury clients do not pay a fee unless and until your case settles or judgment enters, so consultations for such clients by phone or in-office are included when the firm enters into a contingency fee agreement with such clients.
Contingent Fee Arrangements
Q: Does Plaza Law Group take cases on contingent fee agreements?
A: Yes. Personal injury cases are always accepted on a contingency basis. Other types of cases, such as criminal defense matters, for example, simply can't be pursued with a contingent fee arrangement, both for practical and ethical reasons. Your fee agreement will be given to you in writing if you become a client of the firm.
Documents and Supporting Materials
Q: I called Plaza Law Group and set an appointment for a consultation. I have a lot of documents, emails, correspondence, contracts, etc. that support my case. Should I bring all of those materials with me to the consultation?
A: If you have supporting materials, you should bring them with you to a consultation so that the attorney you meet with will have the opportunity to review the materials with you and develop a better sense of the strength of your case. This is especially true in defense cases, non-compete cases and complex business matters where contracts, purchase and sales agreements, operating agreements and correspondence are particularly important. If you have a large amount of supporting materials, please call in advance to make arrangements to overnight or fax the materials in. This will allow the attorney you meet with the opportunity to review the materials in advance to save time at the consultation.
Q: I called Plaza Law Group and set an appointment for a consultation. I have witnesses willing to testify on my behalf. Should I bring them with me?
A: If you have witnesses to support your case, please notify the attorney you will be meeting with. In some cases, it may be important to bring witnesses with you to the consultation to sign affidavits or otherwise support your case. In other cases, it is more important for you to provide information yourself and more thoroughly develop your case before involving witnesses. The attorney you meet with will make that determination.
Q: Can I pay for legal services using my debit or credit card?
A: Yes. If you prefer to use a credit or debit card, the web site has been enabled to faciliate payments for professional services rendered. We do not accept credit cards for any legal retainer fees not yet earned.
