Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I need a lawyer?

The only way to find out is to ask. Employment and immigration laws are complicated, and even though it may seem at first that you can handle things on your own, it is easy to make little mistakes that can impact your rights in a significant way. As a matter of Firm policy, we will not advise anyone to engage our services unless we believe that: (1) a lawyer really is needed, and (2) we believe that we can provide meaningful assistance in meeting the client’s needs.

Where are your offices?

Our main office is located in the heart of downtown Arlington, at The Curtis Buidling, 318 West Main Street, Suite 100. We are a block north of Abram, directly across from Theater Arlington.

How much will it cost for a consultation?

Our consultation fees vary based upon the type of legal matter you have. Generally, we charge $175 for a one-hour consultation.

How long do consultations last?

Usually about an hour, unless your case is unusually complex.

Will I consult with an actual attorney?

Yes. Rob meets with each potential client directly and evaluates each legal matter personally.

How much are your fees if you take my case?

Our billing is handled in a number of different ways, based upon the type and complexity of the matter. Some matters are handled on an hourly basis, others on a flat fee basis. Most of our employment cases in which we represent the employee are handled on a contingency basis, which means that we receive a percentage of any recovery you obtain. Fees will be discussed during the consultation, and if we take your case you will receive an engagement letter that spells out exactly how those fees will be calculated.

What’s with the rhinos?

The rhino is a symbol of the way we approach our business: We charge after our client’s objectives with a single-minded determination to meet those goals. The image is derived from one of Rob’s favorite books, Rhinoceros Success by Scott Alexander. Beside all that, Rob just thinks they’re cool.
