The key difference is what the motivation is for the consultation from the law firm’s perspective. Many law firms offer free consultation only as a marketing technique to get you in the door. Whether you have a solid case or not, the law firm tries to get you to retain them to represent you. On the other hand, TLP retains their attorneys and pays a salary to provide consultations to our members. If you do not have a case, our attorneys will tell you so honestly, not trying to deceive you into retaining them to fight a losing case or to retain them when you can solve the problem yourself at little to no cost. If you do have a case, your consultation will offer you the most appropriate way to proceed. Your TLP monthly membership fee guarantees direct and honest answers in all aspects
