Schedule a consultation today! What to bring and what to expect. There is a flat fee for a consultation of $200. If you contact our office to schedule an appointment, our legal staff will discuss the consultation fee and run a conflict check to ensure that we can meet with you to discuss your legal concerns. Any information gleaned in a consultation will be deemed confidential even if you do not choose to hire the attorney for future legal assistance. Prior to  being a client of the firm, legal advice will not be given out over the phone.

Please bring any past court documents, contracts, and/or relevant information pertaining to your legal questions to this appointment. Lunch time appointments are available and office hours are 8am-5pm. The last appointment  time available is typically 4pm but other options may be available. Telephone consultations may be scheduled if payment is made in advance. Intake paperwork must be filled out prior to meeting with the attorney so please be 15 minutes early to complete if you would like your appointment to start on time. Should you wish to receive the intake paperwork to complete prior to your consultation it may be arranged.

Ashley Michael will meet with you to discuss your legal questions and would also address any potential legal claims you might have. Family and Juvenile law issues do not always mean a party must handle their legal matters  with the Courts and to be decided by a Judge. Sometimes parties can resolve their legal issues through Collaborative Law, Mediation, Consent Orders, and Contracts through negotiation sometimes without court involvement.  After background information is collected by the attorney, North Carolina law, court procedure, legal definitions and explanations are presented to the potential client along with legal advice and problem solving. The consultation is completed with a financial quote for services which would either involve a flat billing rate or an hourly billing rate with a trust account retainer. The attorney will always discuss a cost-benefit analysis for legal services focusing on  what the legal advice would entail.
