In the old days (or at least in old TV shows) families kept their lawyer’s number next to the phone, right alongside the family doctor, the vet and the school principal. You could call them up for matters big and small, and always trust that they’d give useful advice.
These days lawyers are much more specialized in their practice, and many people are so afraid of attorney fees that they don’t even want to pick up the phone. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep the number
“We love it when clients call us for advice or recommendations!” says Rob Iddins, managing law partner of Iddins Law Group in Kent. “Once we’ve built that trust, our clients will call for many reasons. If it’s beyond the scope of our practice we’ll definitely refer them to the appropriate specialist, whether that’s a divorce or bankruptcy lawyer or something else. People even ask us for advice finding a CPA, a financial advisor or even a chiropractor, and because we have a long history of community involvement here in Kent we often know exactly who to call.”
Iddins Law Group specializes in probate, estate planning, elder law, wrongful death and personal injury. And with their complimentary 15-minute consultations, you’re always welcome to call to find out if your needs match their services.
“We’re very proud of the 15-minute consultation, which we offer over the phone, via video conference or in person. It’s an opportunity for us to get to know each other and see if it’s a good fit,” Iddins says. “Even if we’re not right for the case, we can often point you in the direction of someone who is.”
Trusted lawyer help for the whole family
Some modern law firms are transactional — they’ll help you write your will or resolve a personal injury case, and then you’ll never speak with them again. Iddins Law Group works differently.
“We love building long-term relationships with our clients,” Iddins says. “Let us know when your kids are old enough to be executor of your will, or need to write their own will. No matter where your grandparents wrote their estate plan, when the time comes we can walk you through their probate.”
Many Iddins Law Group services are provided for a flat fee, which you’ll agree to before services begin. They’re also clearly displayed at iddinslaw.com.
“We understand that calling an attorney can be intimidating, and concerns about costs don’t help. That’s why we post our fees online, and make sure to answer the phone no matter when you call. People are often surprised that it’s such a friendly person on the other end of the phone, and that eases a lot of their fears.”
