Independent Legal Advice

Independent legal advice is available from Stephens & Holman in circumstances where Stephens & Holman is not representing the person seeking independent legal advice but, rather, that person’s lawyer needs to have the client get advice from a lawyer outside that lawyer’s firm.

A lawyer is entering into a business transaction with a client;

There is a proposed family law agreement;

A lawyer discovers that an error or omission has been made.
