Note To Prospective Clients
The Law Office of Richard De Stefano
Prospective clients: please call or email for an appointment for your initial interview, which we can do either in-person or by telephone. Mr. De Stefano and De Stefano Law Firm will not provide you with legal advice by email unless you have established an attorney-client relationship, which will require several important preliminary steps:
- we must determine that your legal needs are generally within our areas of practice (See our practice areas here)
- we must do a conflict check
- we and you must agree on the basis for fees and other charges, normally involving a written Legal Services Agreement and agreed schedule of charges
- you must deposit, in advance of commencement of representation, an agreed amount on account of fees and other charges. We accept checks and credit cards (VISA or MC).
