At Foster Wallace, LLC, we want to ensure this initial meeting is as informative and comforting as possible. Here is what you can expect when you sit down with our Kansas City-based legal experts for the first time.

Understanding the Consultation Process

At Foster Wallace, LLC, you will be greeted with respect and compassion. We understand that you are going through a challenging time, and our goal is to make you feel comfortable sharing your story.

Reviewing Your Case

Listening to Your Story: Our attorneys will listen attentively to understand the details of your situation and ask relevant questions. This is not our first “rodeo.” We have heard nearly every type of story you can imagine.consultation

Evaluating Your Claim: We will assess the merits of your case, including the circumstances of the injury and its impact on your life.

Discussing Legal Options: Our team will explain your legal options and the potential paths your case could take moving forward.

Gathering Information

To give you the best possible advice, we will need to gather information about your case, including the following:

  • Documentation: Bring any documents related to your case, such as medical records, accident reports, and correspondence with insurance companies. If you don’t have any of these or some of these yet, do not worry as we can typically gather them pretty quickly.
  • Questions: Be prepared to answer questions about the accident, your injuries, and how they have affected you.
  • Honesty: It is crucial to be honest and thorough when discussing your case with your lawyer. We need to know everything – even the “bad” facts or whether you had prior injuries.

Understanding Legal Fees

Contingency Basis: Foster Wallace, LLC works on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay no upfront fees. We only get paid if we win your case. We are aligned with you every step of the way – the more money we get for you, the more money we get paid as well. It’s a win-win and ensures you that we are doing everything we can to get you as much money as possible.

Explaining Costs: We will explain any costs that might be incurred throughout the legal process. We front those costs and are only repaid those costs if we win or settle your case for you.

No False Promises: We do not make guarantees about outcomes, but we promise to work tirelessly on your behalf.

Timeline: We will give you a realistic timeline of how long your case might take. Every case is different, and we want to get your case resolved as fast as we can as we don’t get paid until you do.

Communication: Our attorneys will discuss how we’ll keep in touch with updates on your case.

Next Steps

Legal Strategy: We will outline the initial steps we will take if you decide to proceed and hire our personal injury law firm to represent you.
