This guide aims to walk you through the essential steps, emphasizing our firm’s client-friendly policies that ensure you make an informed decision.
Initial Consultation: Your First Contact
The first step in the hiring process is the initial consultation. This meeting allows you to discuss the specifics of your case with a legal professional and evaluate how well the firm can address your needs. At van der Veen, Hartshorn and Levin, we provide a no-obligation, confidential consultation, giving you the chance to ask questions, outline your situation, and better understand how Pennsylvania law applies to your case.

Research: Due Diligence
Following the consultation, it’s crucial to do some background research. Check online reviews, client testimonials, and any available legal records. Consider factors such as experience, area of specialization, and the firm's history of successful case outcomes. Our firm's reputation within the Philadelphia legal community stands as a testament to our commitment to client success.

An important aspect to consider is the cost. You might encounter various fee structures like hourly rates, fixed fees, or contingency fees. We pride ourselves on our transparent fee structure. Our contingency fees mean that you don’t pay unless we win your case, aligning our success with yours.
