Yes, I charge a fee of $100.00 for our first consultation. Please note that the consultation fee must be paid in advance to schedule and secure your appointment. The reason for this is that I routinely travel between court appearances, depositions, and meditations in various locations in the DFW metroplex, and I often times will be making a special trip to meet with you and schedule other activities in conjunction with your appointment. I try to be prompt so you will not have to wait. You may reschedule upon reasonable notice.

During the consultation, I will ask you to first present me with what you consider to be the present issue or problem at hand. Then, I will let you provide me with a summary of the facts of your case and determine the legal issues involved. I will then give you legal advice, providing information about the law applicable to your case, discussing your options and alternatives, advising you of possible tactics and strategy, and give you recommendations for what action you may and should take. I will answer any questions you may have. If you request, I will also explain my fees and give you an estimate of the fees and expenses you may incur in your matter if you decide to hire me. To do this right, it generally takes about 45 minutes to an hour.

I understand there are some attorneys offering a "free" consultation. However, most reputable, experienced attorneys do not. There is an old saying I believe to be true -- "you get what you pay for". Also, I think you only appreciate something you have to work or pay for.

I prefer to meet with you in person if possible, but I also offer telephone consultations for those clients unable to come to my office due to distance or time constraints. In most instances, I am available to consult with you within twenty-four hours of your request. Please call my office and we'll be happy to schedule an appointment at your convenience.

What Rita's Clients Say

My wife committed fraud and actually got Orders entered against me.  I don't know what my wife told the Judge. Nobody would even let me see the Orders she got against me, much less let me have a copy.  They were not available online, either mysteriously. Yet, the Orders affected my rights as to my property and my children. Inconceivable! Rita Boyd protected my rights when nobody else could or would.
