Consultation fees are fully REFUNDABLE if Smith & Hopen is not engaged to perform intellectual property work, the firm cannot provide representation or simply by request for any reason. If the firm is engaged, the consultation fee is credited towards any flat-fee, hourly or out-of-pocket expense in the course of representation. Payment of the refundable consultation fee does not inherently form an attorney-client relationship although all discussions are confidential and privileged. If you prefer to schedule and pay over the phone please call us at 813-925-8505. Alternatively, if you have preliminary questions do not hesitate to contact our helpful and knowledgeable staff.
