Do You Provide Free Consultations? (2023 update)

Jan 06, 2023

There is a difference between a free consultation and free advice.

Many potential clients with an entertainment problem or question will call several lawyers in an attempt to get free legal advice. So if the question is “Will you meet with me, hear my story and give me free legal advice,” then the answer is “No, we do not provide free legal advice.”

If the question is “I have a matter that requires an experienced entertainment attorney, will you meet with me to see if we’re a good fit” then the answer is “Yes, we provide free consultations.” We have found that the “fit” is a crucial component in the attorney-client relationship. You should feel comfortable with us, and we must feel comfortable working with you, for the relationship to be successful.

In our initial assessment meeting, as part of determining fit, we will discuss your legal options and strategy. To make the best use of your time, come prepared with a written timeline of events and a prepared list of questions.

Because it is impossible to determine which of the above questions a prospective client is asking until we meet, we charge $750 for the initial assessment meeting. If we decide to work together, you will receive a $750 credit on the first bill. In other words, if you retain us, the initial consultation is free.
