Case Opinions
Our opinions set forth an analysis of the facts, the issues involved, the mindset and expectations of the clients and other parties, the approximate length and difficulty of the litigation with regard to the particular county and opposing counsel, and most important, the projected costs and fees for the matter.
The initial discussion with counsel is without charge. We do not charge until we actually start drafting and researching the matter. All opinions are in writing and are documented with points and authorities, local rules, and practical suggestions.
