What to Expect in that First Meeting With Your Attorney -- What the ISBA Says

Question: Do I need to pay for the first meeting with an attorney?Answer: Every attorney has a different way of charging for their services. Some are willing to provide an initial consultation at little or no charge. You should always ask in advance if there will be a charge for the first meeting and, if so, what the charge covers. The Illinois State Bar Association’s IllinoisLawyerFinder.com service connects members of the public with an attorney for a 30-minute consultation for no more than $25. For a phone referral, call 800-922-8757.  For more information about Illinois law, visit www.illinoislawyerfinder.com.  If you have a legal question, send it to illinoislawcolumn@isba.org.Illinois Law Now is a series of newspaper and internet posts prepared by the Illinois State Bar Association that address legal issues of interest to the public.
