Coming forward with information about personal injuries, including sexual abuse and sexual assault, can be extraordinarily difficult. Many clients have legitimate concerns about what will happen if they contact a lawyer about their experience.
Because it is often the uncertainty about what will happen that prevents clients from coming forward, we would like to explain our goals in an initial consultation, and the process we use to better get to know our clients and determine how we can help them.
With Koller Law Firm, the role of attorney advocate is taken seriously. A clear, objective and informed assessment from an experienced legal advocate will help you to determine what course of action is right for you. That is why we are honest about your case and your situation based on the facts and circumstances of your case.
Our first consultation is an informal discussion. I want to hear your story and provide you with information about your legal rights, what I do and how I can help. The discussion is a back and forth about what happened to you, what your goals are moving forward and how I can aid you in that process.
I know that these topics can be emotional and sensitive so you are not expected to open up completely and relive traumatic events that you are not ready to discuss. I know that recall about what happened and the willingness to talk about certain aspects comes and goes. That’s completely normal. I expect that it will take some time for you to trust us and for me to learn your story.
If I represent you, your interests come first. That means you have the final word about the legal steps you choose to take. I am here to listen to you and your story and guide you through your options.
An initial consultation does not mean you have agreed to hire Koller Trial Law or that I have agreed to represent you. You will not be charged for the consultation.
Our first meeting is an opportunity for both of us to better understand the situation and what the options are moving forward. Because your attorney is someone you should be able to trust, I believe the first step is providing an open and honest consultation at no cost and no obligation to you.
Every employee of Koller Trial Law is trauma-informed and understands the need for extreme confidentiality.
