When people say free consultation what does that mean?

I agree. Generally law firms will offer about a 30-minute free consultation (depending on the complexity of the case and the about of money or risk at issue it may be longer). Remember, this consultation is two-way interview. Hiring of an attorney is an important decision and you should make sure that the attorney is right for you and your legal needs. The Florida Bar has developed a consumer guide with basic client's rights that you may want to review:
It means they will meet with you and talk to you about your legal issue and will not charge you for the first meeting. Usually the first meeting will be half and hour or an hour. Most lawyers can figure out what needs to be done after speaking to you during the initial consultation. Then they can tell you what they think needs to be done and what it will cost.
