Can I Get a Phone Consultation?

Krystel Breshears

Now that you’ve picked up the phone…

You finally picked up the phone and made the call you’ve been dreading. What happens next? Anytime you call our office, the staff member answering the phone can answer most general questions for you. For the most part however, whomever answers the phone is not going to be an attorney and cannot give you any legal advice.

It is very common for potential clients to ask if they can receive their free consultation by phone but this is unfortunately, not an option. Consulting with an attorney is much like visit a doctor for the first time. A doctor cannot give you a proper diagnosis by phone and cannot meet with you until you have received and signed off on your HIPPA agreement.

When you meet with a bankruptcy attorney, they are required to review a disclosure agreement with you and witness your signature on said agreement. Signing this agreement does not obligate you to hire our firm, but it does allow the attorney to discuss your situation at length and give you the appropriate advice specific to your situation.

Meeting with our office in person also gives you a sense of security and allows our staff to begin to develop a professional relationship with you, so you feel comfortable confiding in us with your bankruptcy questions and issues.  This also give you the opportunity from the time you schedule an appointment and come in for your consultation to gather your thoughts and maybe even write down the questions you have for the attorney.

At the Licata Bankruptcy Firm, bankruptcy is all we do. If bankruptcy is not the best or the only option for you, we will point you in the right direction. Give yourself some peace of mind. Give us a call at 417-887-DEBT and schedule your free consultation today.
