What to expect at an initial consultation
We know that walking into a legal office can feel a little intimidating and unfamiliar. It’s normal to have those initial feelings when you’re not sure what to expect at an initial consultation. One of our highest priorities is ensuring our prospective and current clients feel comfortable. We find that when you aren’t feeling nervous or unprepared, it makes for a great visit. That is why we want to help eliminate those feelings and put your nerves at ease by sharing what you can expect at your initial consultation with Troutman & Napier.
We approach each situation as though we were advising a family member. We do our best to keep everything relaxed while we sit down and talk about your situation. Remember, this is a friendly conversation with legal experts who care about helping you find timely, sustainable solutions. We don’t refer to ourselves as lawyers but rather legal counselors because our priority is identifying what your best interest is.
During the initial consultation, we take the time to listen and ask you questions specific to your situation. The better we can establish a clear picture, the better we can further proceed to offer our best advice. One of the biggest complaints clients often have about their experience with a lawyer is they feel “in the dark.” They have questions because they don’t know or understand what is being done in their case or why it’s taking so long. We make sure to clearly communicate everything such as legal issues, possible results, associated fees, timelines, and processes so that you are not surprised during the process.
Finally, we communicate with you what your best options and next steps should be to obtain your desired outcome. Remember, during this conversation we are simply establishing who we are, how we do things, and how we can help to meet your specific needs and goals. If you may be feeling overwhelmed, nervous, or unprepared we encourage you to reach out to us by phone to set up an initial consultation.
Walk into your legal situation feeling confident knowing the legal experts of Troutman & Napier are with you every step of the way.
We are more than just lawyers; we are your counselors.
