A Professional Opinion about What If...?

.....Even if you have not received a summons, a subpoena, or a subpoena duces tecum, but you think that you will, I meet with you, listen to your concerns, confirm the law, and develop a strategy for your goals, just in case. After I gather as much information as I can about your case,  I advise you about how the evidence and the law affect you, and I help you identify risks and evaluate your options.  I provide you with my professional opinion about whether you would have a privilege to assert, and your chances of success.  Even if you do not agree with my recommendation, I respect your decision.  Only you can decide what risks and consequences you can tolerate. 

.....If you do eventually receive a summons, a subpoena, or a subpoena duces tecum, I can be prepared to represent you as a defendant or as a witness.

.....While no lawyer can guarantee the result in a case, I do my best to protect you, your relationships, and your career. I am careful and thougtful for you, because these may be your most difficult challenges when you are unsure about the future. I understand how courts and lawyers work.

.....Keep in mind that I will need time to prepare your case. In addition, over time witnesses, who are necessary for you, can become unavailable, or their memories can fade. Records, that are essential for you, can be lost or destroyed. If you wait to seek counsel, you will prevent me from doing all that I can do for you.
