    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Although I, and many other lawyers, do 'chat' on the phone for free for a few minutes .... in all honesty it is impossible to give a proper fee quote during a brief call.

    My average consultation takes 1-1/2 hours ... I suspect it is much the same for other lawyers.

    You, of course, are free to call around ... you might get lucky and find an attorney that doesn't have much 'happening' that day and he/she could be willing to do a free consultation.

    Answered . Many clients seem to inquire about cost, and rightly so in these economic times. What unfortunately many clients don't think about is quality. As with advice regarding any matter, legal advice is only as good as the information it is based on and the thoroughness of the consultation. If the free consultation is brief and not much information is exchanged, the price for relying on this advice may be much higher further down the road. That is not to say that there are not good quality free consultations out there, but quality should be at the forefront of decisions.
