Terms of co-operation with our law office
Depending on your preferences, we will be happy to offer you either one-time or permanent legal assistance. At the beginning, we invite our prospective clients to our domicile in order to discuss their problems. During the visit, the client is presented with a number of options and strategies to choose from, and informed about the terms of legal assistance. Any such discussion is always kept confidential, in keeping with the rule of attorney-client privilege. This means that lawyers are not allowed to disclose any information revealed to them, and no third party may ask for such disclosure.
Before commencement of our legal cooperation, the client and the lawyer must sign a relevant agreement and the client must grant the lawyer a power of attorney authorising him/her to act on his/her behalf. We regularly contact our clients to keep them posted about the latest developments of their cases. The clients may also contact us at any time in order to get detailed updates. The attorney’s fees are determined on a case-to-case basis. We may calculate our remuneration based on an hourly rates, fixed charges or the so-called success fee (depending on the outcome of the case).
When the case is closed, all documents and official letters delivered to us in the course of proceedings are returned to the client.
Apart from Warsaw, we also provide our legal assistance in other locations nationwide. We also offer “remote” legal aid to persons staying abroad and unable to attend face-to-face meetings in Warsaw. In such cases, attorney’s fees are charged in advance. In case of urgency i.e. when urgent defence measures must be taken in respect of persons deprived of liberty, a power of attorney may be signed by a third-party who is physically capable of appearing for that purpose at our domicile in Warsaw. In such a case, our lawyers will take immediate steps to verify such power of attorney with the represented individual.
