I am often retained to consult with both civil and criminal lawyers concerning trial strategy and preparation. Consultations can easily be accomplished by Zoom. When I consult with a trial lawyer or a trial team, I consider the trial firm as my client, and I work at the direction of lead counsel. In short, I am there to serve your needs.
Lead counsel selects the discovery, motions, rulings that I am to use to prepare for consolations. I am accustomed to digesting large amounts of facts in a relatively small time. The range of my consultations and the depth with which I work with trial teams is designed to be very efficient. Often with just a few hours work I can provide substantial analysis.
I bill $500 per hour in 1/10-hour increments. I do not bill for an initial discussion of your case and an assessment of your potential needs. When retained through court appointed counsel, my rates are reduced to fit within court guidelines and budget. References are available.
