Getting Started

Case Evaluation

Getting StartedWe provide a free case evaluation by phone. During the evaluation, we will talk generally about your situation and identify possible options to reach your goals.

Evaluations are usually 10 to 15 minutes long.


The next step is to schedule an in-person consultation. If you live outside of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, we can meet by phone or Skype. During the in person consultation, we will gather more details about your situation, fully assess the strengths and weaknesses of your options, explain the process and answer your questions. We will also discuss our fee for representing you. The consultation fee is $150 and will be credited to your account if you hire us within 30 days of our meeting.

Brief Advice or Limited Representation

Some clients choose to represent themselves (pro se) and need help with a small portion of their case or have general questions about their situation. We can meet your needs with brief advice or limited representation. Some examples include reviewing and explaining notices, examining legal documents, performing legal research, inquiring into the status of pending applications, attending interviews or examinations under oath. We generally charge an hourly rate for limited representation cases.

Hiring our Lawyers

If you would  like to hire any of our lawyers, we will provide you with a representation agreement that outlines our fees as well as the scope of our legal duties to you.  Our representation begins when you return the signed representation agreement along with the initial fee payment.
