What are your hours?

We are open Monday to Friday, from 8am to 5pm.

What is an intake?

An intake happens when a potential client calls in seeking representation. The intake coordinator will take both personal information as well as information related to your case and discuss the process of setting up a consultation. They can also answer questions about the law firm and services provided. If what you are looking for is not one of our practice areas, the intake coordinator can also provide you with resources and contact information for another lawyer or firm.

Do you charge for a consultation?

Yes. The attorney is working during your consultation by reviewing your case and creating your defense plan, so it is considering a working hour that is billed for.

What should I expect during a consultation?

At JLongtin Law, a consultation is a paid working hour with one of our attorneys. During the hour, they will gather detailed information about your case, review materials you bring with you, and formulate a plan for presenting your defense based on your unique situation.

Another key part of the consultation is the time spent helping you understand the process, tell you what to expect moving forward, as well as coming up with the retainer fee. The attorney is there to answer questions, so do not be afraid to ask.

What if I cannot schedule a consultation before my court date?

Once a consultation has been paid for, we will write up a letter for you to take to court and present to the judge to show that you have a consultation scheduled.
