Foote Law believes in accessibility throughout their entire practice, not just by being available to clients to communicate face-to-face, but also by creating a completely accessible website for persons with disabilities.

Access to Foote Law’s team of lawyers and law clerks is assured for all clients through a variety of means including: phone, email, zoom meetings and text messaging – methods that also help to ensure cost-savings through efficient use of time.

Clients who prefer face-to-face meetings, and who cannot access Foote Law’s physical location, will be accommodated at an accessible location. At Foote Law, “we always ensure everyone has access to our services.”
Foote Law includes both Lawyers and Law Clerks each of whom serve a variety of important and necessary functions. At all times you may expect to communicate with both lawyers and/or our team of law clerks at various points throughout your process.

After your initial consultation, you will be assigned a Law Clerk to be your primary point of contact.

A clerk helps to reduce costs significantly by completing some of the necessary work behind the scenes. Law Clerks are extremely well versed in legal matters, particularly in procedural concerns and provide our clients with support every step of the way – except in court. They cannot provide legal advice nor attend court as your representative.

If at any time a clerk is unable to assist a client, they will arrange contact with the lawyer, scheduling a call and/or doing whatever is necessary to support the client.

A lawyer’s role is to represent their client’s best interest, whether in or outside of the court. Lawyers will listen and take instruction from the client and provide knowledgeable and fulsome legal advice. Additionally, a lawyer will provide direction to the clerk(s) in order for clerks to provide ongoing assistance to clients.
Consultations are based on the lawyer's hourly rate and dependent upon how much time is spent with the client. We pass along savings to clients where possible by:

Basing consultation fees on an hourly rate and on the length of time we spend together.

Accepting Legal Aid Certificates that may help cover a portion of your expenses.

Participating in/ Accepting EAP (Employee Assistance Programs) Certificates – these typically will offer the first half hour of a consultation free and a reduced hourly rate for remaining consultation time and throughout any ensuing legal proceedings. (Applicable upon retention of our services.)

Doing our best “to meet you where you are,” keeping costs affordable as much as possible.

Offering virtual consultation services.
