Office Consultation Policy

Updated:  11/25/2022

NOTE: IF YOU ARE NOT A CURRENT CLIENT AND ARE INTERESTED IN SCHEDULING A MEETING OR CONSULTATION, PLEASE MESSAGE OUR FIRM USING THE CONTACT FORM FOR THE FASTEST RESPONSE. REQUESTS LEFT WITH THE RECEPTIONIST OR BY VOICEMAIL WILL LIKELY BE SIGNIFICANTLY DELAYED.  PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE OFFICE CONSULTATION POLICY BEFORE REQUESTING ONE. 

Office Consultation: BHANDLAW, PLLC (“BHANDLAW“, “us“, “we“, or “our“) offers a 60-minute in-person or virtual Office Consultation with Mr. Bhandhusavee at his current standard hourly rate of $350. We do not offer free case evaluations or initial consultations. Office Consultations are scheduled for software technology, e-commerce, and new media legal matters (collectively, the “practice areas”) only. For all other legal areas outside of the practice areas, we will do our best to refer you to another law firm that handles the particular matter (although we make no guarantee or endorsement of any law firm or attorney which we may refer to you).

Scope of Office Consultation:  During the Office Consultation, Mr. Bhandhusavee will spend up to 60 minutes reviewing factual background, informing you of the law, assessing your legal situation, advising you of legal options, and attempting to answer any other legal questions which you may have (within the scope of the practice areas). Office Consultations will not include document review, drafting, revision, legal research, out-of-office contact or phone calls to third-parties or counsel, correspondence drafting, appearances before any court, arbitrator, tribunal, or agency. If your consultation needs fall outside of this, please either e-mail us to discuss possible engagement of services or re-consider contacting our law firm.

Acceptance of Policy; Payment of Fee:  Office Consultation fees are to be paid online and must be paid not later than 12-hours in advance of the appointment time through a provided LawPay™ link.  Office Consultation fees are earned-upon-receipt and will NOT be deposited in any type of client trust account. No refunds are issued for Office Consultation “no shows”, although we may (in our sole discretion) offer to reschedule a no-show Office Consultation one (1) time.

Right to Decline Office Consultation or Case:  Your Office Consultation request is not guaranteed and is subject to our firm’s initial approval. We reserve the right to (and may) decline an Office Consultation for any or no reason.

Scheduling:  Once we have received your Office Consultation request, if the request is within our practice area, and something in which we can assist, we will contact you to schedule the appointment on a day and at a time that is mutually convenient, along with instructions for the meeting and LawPay™ link for payment of the Office Consultation fee.

Time or Work beyond Office Consultation:  Subject to “Right to Decline” above, if you decide to hire BHANDLAW to do additional work beyond the Office Consultation, you understand that will be required to sign a formal, written client engagement with BHANDLAW and for a retainer or advanced fee deposit to be determined by us before we will start any additional work.
