I’m Miriam Neff-with STARTING OVER FINANCIALLY,-and I’m Valerie Neff Hogan, and we’re here to talk about money
M I’m saddened by seeing my friends seeking legal advice, being charged and not knowing what they can expect from that lawyer
V Get a written contract or engagement letter first. Get in writing what you will receive for a specific amount of money. If they cannot give you a written contract, run, don’t walk out the door.
Should an unknown necessary action be needed, get that in writing and the additional cost of that. You may chose to take the work they have done and shop for another legal resource.
M Be bold. No contract, no check. Vet lawyers as you would any other service you need.
