There are certainly other lawyers that do not charge an initial consultation fee. Many of those are in certain practice areas like personal injury where the hiring of the lawyer will be on a contingency fee basis. We choose to charge an initial fee so that we do not have to make up for that lost revenue on other clients who are decision makers and ready to hire our services, providing for a lower cost overall to all of our clients. We have found that people who are paying for services are more focused on making that first session productive for both of us.
