Commerce Family Lawyer Offers Free Consultation

Clients who have seen our advertisements or blogs offering a free legal consultation, sometimes call the office wanting to know how much they have to put down before the first meeting.

Free Legal Consultation Encourages Cooperation

The client and lawyer are a team. And in order for the case to be as successful as possible, the two have to be partners in the process and trust each other. The free legal consultation gives both parties a chance to learn each other’s priorities.

Free Legal Consultation Encourages Clients to Know the Case Costs

The free legal consultation is free. No strings. No catches. After the initial discussion however, there are obviously legal expenses to any case. The free legal consultation is a good time for Kathryn Wayne-Spindler to thoroughly explain the retainer system and estimate potential legal expenses. Before clients signs contracts, Wayne-Spindler gives them her best and worse-case estimates of expenses.


A free legal consultation also gives our attorneys the opportunity to steer potential clients to another, more appropriate attorney.

“I have a lot of experience. I have a Michigan law license that allows me to practice any type of law that comes across my desk,” said Wayne-Spindler, “but that doesn’t mean that it would be in anyone’s best interests for me to take on every case that comes my way.”

Wayne-Spindler is good – really good – at the areas of law that she has been practicing for decades. She is hands-down one of the more experienced attorneys in Southeastern Michigan in the fields of family law, divorce, adoption, estate planning, probate and family real estate and minor criminal law cases.

Those many, many years of experience have also given Wayne-Spindler a vast network of experienced, talented colleagues. If our legal team of Kathryn Wayne-Spindler & Associates doesn’t have the experience in a certain area of law, we’ll let you know and suggest someone else.

Waterford Attorney Offers Advice for DIY Law

Every so often, a case comes along that Kathryn knows is prime for the client to handle themselves. She doesn’t often advise DIY law. But in certain instances, after hearing the specifics and meeting a client during a free legal consultation, she will suggest they handle the majority of the legal paperwork themselves. She strongly recommends, however, that they have an attorney review it before filing in court. She charges a nominal fee for brief, one-time reviews for DIY filers.

Free consultations are good business

Not all attorneys offer free consultations. Kathryn Wayne-Spindler has found through the years that it is a great tool for the client-lawyer relationship to get off on the right track.

“It’s a win-win,” said Wayne-Spindler, “I get to gather information up-front to give us the best possible chance of being successful. And the client gets to learn more about the person they will be entrusting with their legal worries.”
