KEEP CLIENTS INFORMED
Mr. Martin stays in communication with
clients and keeps them informed by sending them copies of
correspondence and other documents as prepared and received.
The relationship between a lawyer and client is founded on trust
and confidence. So sacred is this relationship that information
given by the client to the lawyer is a "privileged
communication" which is recognized by the courts as confidential
so that it cannot be disclosed without the client's consent.
Therefore, Mr. Martin is
careful in preserving the attorney-client privilege and in
maintaining clients' confidential information.
Mr. Martin welcomes new clients. If he is not
able to handle the particular matter, he is often able to
associate or refer to someone who can help. Much of the work of this Florida lawyer comes
through referrals online, as well as from existing
clients and other professionals. Please note that Mr. Martin is a member of The Florida Bar and does not
practice law in other states but may advise on matters relating
to Florida law.
FEES AND COSTS
In addition to payment of legal fees, clients are also responsible for costs such as filing fees, FedEx,
courier, etc. Mr. Martin
discusses fees in the initial conference. It is office policy to
accept an initial, nonrefundable fee before opening a
file and beginning work. Payment is due upon receipt of each
invoice. If another payment method is needed, please discuss
this at the initial conference. Mr. Martin will answer
questions about billing at any time.
