How it works

Take control of your situation.

How does the Bolin Firm work? The Bolin Firm works by providing you a safe space to bring your legal issues without worrying about a full-blown retainer. You are to bring your questions and we will discuss the options available to you. This will enable you make sound and stable decisions before embarking on a costly, destructive and emotional litigation course. Your consultation will be with Ms. Bolin on the telephone or via video conferencing.

The Bolin Firm should be your first necessary step before you make life-changing legal decisions. My consultation with you is covered by confidentiality, so you may ask your questions freely. I will listen, review pertinent documents, ask pointed questions, and confidentially help you understand your legal situation, give you advice about your legal rights, and guide you through the possible legal options available to you. The sole purpose is to get you to where you want to be quickly, effectively, efficiently.

There are very important preliminary things that you need to understand before you can decide what solutions are available and best suited for your unique legal situation. I will not handle your court case or initiate one for you should litigation ensue, but I will strive to empower you to make an informed, reasoned and calm decision for yourself. Should you choose to pursue a litigated case, I will help you to be on better footing regarding what you can expect during that path that you have chosen.

Also, if you are already involved in a controversy, we can discuss your matter, not to take over from your lawyers, but to be your second pair of eyes and ears, a sounding board to help you navigate your matters and weigh your options.

For those nearing settlement, sometimes you are not sure that you should go for it. Let’s review your options and what you might face should you go all the way to trial.

If you are involved in an ADR, let’s see how best to position you for an efficient and fruitful outcome.

How it works

Step 1: Book Your Time

1. Book your time slot

Use our easy booking app to find the day and time that works best for you, and book it directly through our site. Our time slots are by the hour with a half hour of cushion in between, so you never have to worry that you're running up against the next appointment. I am committed to giving you my undivided attention for as long as we're speaking, and providing you with the best advice I can give by the end of the session.

Step 2: Check your email

2. Check your email

Once you've booked your appointment, you'll receive an email from me with a confirmation of your appointment date and time as well as a Zoom Conference link for you to use when the time arrives. While we rarely have any issues with Zoom links, if you do have any problems accessing the video conference, please email me as soon a possible so we can iron out the problem for you.

Step 3: Gather you documents

3. Gather your documents

I highly recommend you begin gathering your documents sooner than later – preferably right after you've booked your appointment. When it comes to legal issues, organization is key. The last thing you want to be doing right before our call is scrambling around and digging for what you need. The more organized you are for our session, the more I will be able to help you and provide you with the best advice I can give.

Step 4: Call In

4. Join the conference room

We recommend signing into the conference room a few minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to be sure you're on time and ready to go. Remember, please have your documents on hand and organized so we can make the best use of your time without you having to search for what you need. You are welcome to invite anyone you like into the session – just share your Zoom link information with the other party(s). All I ask is you try to give me a head's up ahead of time as to who else will be attending. You can email me that information to [email protected]

Step 5: Take Notes

5. Take notes

Our conference will last for one hour. Typically the first 10-15 minutes will involve you giving me a rundown of your situation with minimal interruption by me. The next 15-20 minutes will be my question-and-answer time to help me to drill down into the details. And the final 25-35 minutes will involve a breakdown of your situation followed your options and my overall advice. The call will not go past one hour, so it will be important that we are able to come to a satisfactory close. To do this, I typically try to wrap up the bulk of my consultation at the 55-minute mark to allow you for some final follow up questions. I will not be sending you a wrap up of our conference, so you're responsible for taking copious notes if you so desire.

Step 6: Need More Time?

6. Need more time?

Typically I find that one hour is more than enough time to give you the tools you need to make informed decisions about your situation. However, if after our session you feel you'd like more time to discuss additional matters, you can simply book additional time at your convenience and we can pick up where we left off, or start down an entirely new line of discussion. When you book your additional time, please add a note to let me know what topics and/or issues your additional session will be addressing.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

Booking your appointment must be pre-paid in full. If you cannot keep your appointment, you must notify us at least 24 hours before your appointment, so we can reschedule you to another date. Failure to do so will be considered a no-show.  No refund will be offered for cancellations, no-shows and early conclusion of consultations. For additional information, please refer to our Legal Consultation Terms & Conditions page.
