Appointment Policy

Please note that as part of the scheduling of our workflow, appointments with Michael J. Howell are normally scheduled for 2:00 p.m. or 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Mornings on these days, and Mondays and Fridays, are the times that we work on our cases and both our staff and our attorneys need to be available; otherwise, the work flow is significantly disrupted.  These are our “workflow” times.

Appointments with Margaret Howell Up De Graff are available during workflow times upon request. 

For meetings conducted during the normal non-workflow times, there is a $50 credit given on the bill, assuming it is not a free initial consultation for new clients, as outlined in our engagement/representation letter.  For meetings scheduled during our workflow periods, there is an extra charge of $100 for the conference, in addition to other charges.

Free initial consultations with Michael J. Howell, as defined on our website and client packages, are only scheduled during our normal appointment times and not our workflow times.  An initial consultation can be scheduled during our workflow times, but we charge our normal hourly rates, plus the additional charge of $100 for the conference.

Initial consultations with Margaret Howell Up De Graff are subject to the credit worth one (1) hour of her time, regardless of whether they are scheduled during workflow hours. 

For a free initial consultation for a married couple, both spouses must attend the meeting.
