What does pro rate my consultation fee mean?

Dear Anne32:

Greetings. Sorry, but I have no idea what another attorney’s fees mean or don’t mean. Good luck and let us know what you find out. Good luck with your consultation.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

Does that mean I’ll just be billed. Or it will be pro rated to my bill once I hire her? I’m just trying to figure out how much cash I need bottom line for my consultation. Her assistant wasn’t very clear. She just said her fee was 350 an hour, and my consultation fee will be pro rated.

This lawyer has been highly recommended by a friend of mine who works for a firm in Charlotte. So, I would like to set up a meeting with her as soon as possible. I have been having a hard time finding a lawyer in my area because I felt like I was just walking around blindly. I’m so happy I finally had the light bulb moment about my friend in Charlotte!

Also, thank you so much for this board. You guys are really great for providing this service. If I were in the Raleigh area I’d be on your doorstep yesterday! haha.

Thank you!
