Scope of Legal Services

An attorney-client relationship with prospective clients is established only after an attorney of Meltzer Law Offices has expressly communicated the ability to accept representation of your matter. Meltzer Law Offices may decline to provide legal service if a conflict of interest is discovered. The scope of legal services to be performed by an attorney of Meltzer Law Offices will be expressly agreed upon in writing by you before any legal services are performed, and do not include any services that have been expressly excluded or are otherwise outside the scope of the written agreement.

Client Funds

No fee will be charged or obligation incurred by registering on this website. In some situations, a client’s funds will not be transferred to Meltzer Law Offices until the legal services requested by the client are ready to be accessed and received by the client on their personal login page. However, most requested services require the upfront payment of the agreed upon fee before Meltzer Law Offices will begin work. After the client’s payment of the agreed upon price is confirmed the client will have complete access to the legal advice, documents, research or other services provided by the attorney. If further communication with the attorney is required, the client may post a separate question regarding the received legal services or request a price quote for additional legal work.
