Coming forward with information about sexual abuse and assault can be extraordinarily difficult. Many victims of sexual violence have legitimate concerns about what happens after they contact a lawyer.
Eisenberg and Baum understands and respects the difficulty victims may face coming forward. We also acknowledge the legitimate concerns victims’ have when contacting an attorney about their experience.
Quite often, it’s the uncertainty of what will happen that prevents a victim from moving forward. With that in mind, we’d like to discuss our first meeting, the goals of the initial consultation, and our process, with the hope of offering peace of mind and ultimately, to determine how best we can help.
To reduce stress, we’ll keep our first consultation to an informal talk, where you’ll share as much of your story as you like, and we’ll discuss what we do, and how we can help.
These conversations can be traumatic and emotional, so you won’t be asked to relive those moments.
We are here to listen to you and your story, and then tell you your options.
Having been down this path before, the attorneys at Eisenberg and Baum will provide the knowledge and options available to you.
We take our role as an attorney advocate very seriously.
As a lawyer, based on your case’s facts, we’re always ready to make informed recommendations. However, in the end, the client makes the final decision. We believe a clear, objective and informed assessment from an experienced legal advocate will help determine what course of action is right for you.
Probably, there are more options available than you realize, more paths to explore, other alternatives to consider. Certainly, litigation may be the best fit. However, there are times when settling the case draws less attention to the victim.
Each case is unique, each client has their objectives, and as a legal advocate, our job is to help determine the best way to reach those goals.
Meeting with us initially does not mean you’ve hired us, or that we’ve agreed to represent you. There is no charge for this discussion. Our first talk allows us to understand your situation and present you with options.
Because your attorney is someone you should be able to trust, we believe the first step is providing an open and honest consultation at no cost and no obligation to you.
Securing witness statements to help secure the most favorable outcome for our clients.
