When seeking attorney representation, it is important to identify a lawyer with whom you have confidence and will truly represent YOUR best interest. Your lawyer should be willing to provide honest and candid feedback to help protect your legal rights. At Peck Legal Group, we begin the process of building relationships with prospective clients by scheduling an initial consultation to meet one-on-one, in a confidential setting. We exchange information about your case and discuss your rights, options, and the possible next steps to consider.
In most cases, an hourly fee is charged in advance of your consultation. Therefore, we aim for these meetings to be a valuable use of our prospective clients’ time, as well as our own. We evaluate the client’s current situation, priorities, and goals. Generally, upon completion of the consultation, it is clear whether legal representation is necessary, and whether the requirements of the case align with the services of our firm.
We understand legal matters can become expensive and always do our best to serve our clients as efficiently as possible throughout legal proceedings.
The Representation Agreement will outline the responsibilities of both Peck Legal Group and yourself. This ensures a complete understanding of your rights and obligations as a client, and helps manage the expectations for your particular case.
Litigation vs. Mediation
At Peck Legal Group, we always seek a resolution that will be of greatest benefit to our clients. This could mean representing you in a courtroom environment at the hands of a judge or jury. Often however, mediation is recommended or even statutorily required. Depending on each case, an attempt at mediation prior to trial may be a more advisable option. We will always keep in mind the concern for our clients’ needs and ideal resolutions when providing suggestions we believe will be most advantageous to reaching an outcome resulting in satisfactory results.

We will treat you with respect, honesty, and compassion, and will make every effort to explain your legal options in a clear and comprehensive manner.
