How to Become a Client of Solkoff Legal, P.A.
Becoming a client of Solkoff Legal, P.A. starts with an Initial Consultation. The purpose of the Initial Consultation is to listen — for the firm to listen to you, what is going on in your life, your needs and concerns and for you to listen to the firm’s information and advice.
When coming to the firm for aging, long-term care planning and related issues, you will learn the following:
1. The three primary types of long-term care
2. The three methods of financing long-term care
3. The process used to protect family savings from the cost of long-term care
4. Tips and Treasures on how to achieve a higher quality of life and reduce anxiety and fear even in the face of illness, incapacity and advanced aging.
5. Whether the firm can assist you, what the process will be and how much it will cost. The firm charges $250 for an Initial Consultation and applies 100% of this fee to any further work. The firm cannot quote fees prior to an Initial Consultation.
One of the purposes of the Initial Consultation is to determine what services you will require. The firm follows a fee schedule, setting forth the same fees for all clients with very rare exception based on extraordinary needs or circumstances. Almost all of the firm’s work is done on a flat fee without hourly billing. The flat fee is quoted during the Initial Consultation, following a regular fee schedule, once the firm diagnoses and prescribes. The fee will never change and you will not pay any extra add-ons or other fees unless the scope of the firm’s representation changes.

Though there are sometimes earlier openings, the firm is usually booked well in advance. If you or other family members are coming in from out of town for the meeting, try to call at least three weeks in advance to better ensure availability. We regret that it is sometimes difficult to set a quick Initial Consultation.
There are two main reasons for the backlog for Initial Consultations. One reason is that we are a busy law firm and we ask that you look at this backlog as a positive rather than a negative. There is a reason we are this busy. A second reason is that we carefully budget our time so that existing clients have priority and do not have to wait. The firm regularly meets with clients by phone and can arrange for conference calls with an unlimited number of participants. Often, the firm will meet with a client in the office and have family members or others join by speakerphone.
The firm will make all of the arrangements to make this possible for you. All matters you share with the firm are confidential. Shortly after your appointment is set, you will receive a package from the firm informing you what to bring to the appointment and giving you a contact person who will make sure you have everything you need. We look forward to calling you our client.
