You get a bang for your buck, pure and simple. You receive a solid education and understanding of what the law provides in your case, what goals appear realistic and achievable, and your options for proceeding.
During your Initial Consultation, Roy K. Farber will get enough information to respond to your concerns and needs. This is not a full and complete interview of your entire situation, which occurs if you decide to have him represent you in the case. He does not want you to leave feeling he is a great listener, but you did not learn anything. When you are done, he wants you to depart with a lot of new information and things to consider.
He shall explain how the facts of your situation are covered in the law, and what your rights are. He talks about the various ways that you may obtain good Orders and protect your interests. He will talk about the advantages of a negotiated settlement or the need to let the Judge or Magistrate decide. And he will provide you with a cost-benefit analysis of your various options, as well as the different ways you may utilize an attorney in the future.
He does not like modern “hard sales” techniques, no matter whether in purchasing a car or hiring an attorney, so that will not happen. Rather, he is focused on your understanding of how your unique situation and the relevant laws come together, which will lead you to understand your best goals; and then, these three elements, your situation, the laws and your goals, will show you the best ways to proceed.
While doing all of this, he shall talk with you in terms that non-lawyers, like you, daily use and understand. He will seek to enable and empower you to make good decisions for yourself and your children. First and foremost, he is an educator and seeks to communicate with you, so that you do understand, and so you leave his office full of new information and ideas and ways to proceed.
