1. What are the different adversarial modes that Ginter Family Law offers?
Ginter Family Law offers two options for adversarial legal assistance: 1) Full Service and 2) Partial Service.
2 What is "Full Service" support?
With full service agreement, an attorney becomes your "attorney of record." The attorney handles all of the legal aspects of your case, including court appearances, settlement negotiations, legal research, consultations and document drafting.
3. What is "Partial Service" support and why would someone want this instead of Full Service?
With a partial service agreement, an attorney takes on some responsibility and the client takes on some responsibility for the case. Someone may want to choose this in an attempt to keep fees down or to retain complete control over various aspects of the case. For example, let's say a client was a very comfortable public speaker and, because of that, wanted to handle any and all court appearances. A partial agreement between the attorney and client could reflect that the client will be handling all court appearances. Since court appearances often require quite a bit of the attorney's time, both in preparation, in travel and in appearance, there is a good potential that the client's fees will be lower than if the attorney was also making court appearances. There are many different types of partial service options to help fit both your case and your comfort level regarding various aspects of the case.
4. I just want to contact you once in a while for advice. Is this an option?
Absolutely. All you have to do is give us a call and set up an appointment. This is our "consult only" service. If you want to come in with the opposing party to get some guidance and/or some assistant to resolve some issues, then this would be our Mediation Consult Only service. If you are looking to come in alone without the opposing party for some guidance, this is our Litigation Consult Only service.
