We are an email-oriented office, so our online asset protection consultations begin with an email back-and-forth dialogue between attorney and client. Our attorney’s objective is to first gather basic facts and documents, after which he can offer a legal opinion, answer questions, and advise on suggested options. This process has proven very popular with clients, because it is unrushed and the client has a written email record of the legal advice given.
Availability and Response Time
We are generally available on business days during normal office hours (Monday through Friday, 8-5 CST). Our response time is usually one to two business days from the time we receive all necessary information and payment from the client – but it can be sooner depending on our backlog.
Advance payment is required. There are a variety of available payment options including credit/debit and Paypal, as well as wire transfer and direct deposit to our operating account at Wells Fargo. If you would like a no-obligation statement prior to making payment, we will gladly provide one. Files go into our queue in the order in which payment is made.
Supporting and Background Documentation
After retaining us, please send copies of supporting documents by email or fax to (832) 201-5327. We do not open a file or save attachments until payment is made, so please wait until after you have retained us to send documents and attachments as there will be no file to put them in. Please supply only documents that are directly relevant to your legal issues.
No Tax, Bookkeeping, or Accounting Advice
Our legal counsel does not include tax or accounting advice. We are not tax advisors, nor do we have a CPA on staff. All clients are encouraged to consult a qualified CPA as part of the client’s professional team in order to be fully informed on the tax and accounting implications of a proposed asset protection structure.
Please complete our Client Inquiry Form. No appointment is necessary to begin the process. Our initial response will be preliminary and general in nature and not a formal legal opinion. You will then have the option of proceeding with paid legal services if you wish.
Thank you for your interest in our law firm. We look forward to being of assistance to you.
