Next Steps – Criminal Defense

Your Conflict Check
Colorado law requires that we perform a conflict check before we have any substantive discussion about your specific situation.  Based on the information you provide, we will search our database to confirm that we have not previously represented the opposing party (and other potential conflicts).  If a conflict is indeed discovered, we will notify you immediately and advise you that we cannot proceed with the consultation and representation.  Likewise, some matters are not a good fit for either of us for a number of reasons.  That is why it is important that the information provided is as detailed as possible.

During this consult, you will receive 20 minutes of high-level analysis and strategy. We may charge for our time. If you decide to retain the firm moving forward, we will credit this charge to your account.

Our Promise to you

This information will not be shared by us with anyone outside of Burnham Law.  We will not send mail to your home.  We will not call you unless you want us to.   Do not hesitate to contact us if you encounter any issue with the form submission or if you have any questions.

Always Available

Thank you for placing your trust in Burnham Law.

  • Attorney Fees-Retainer

    Burnham Law requires a retainer prior to proceeding with most forms of representation. Depending on the complexity of the case, this retainer is likely to be depleted and will require replenishment. In the event you wish to retain Burnham Law, and based upon our thorough approach to our clients’ legal representation, it is important that you understand the necessary financial costs associated with our legal representation. Such costs and fees vary based upon the complexities of each case but may include additional costs and fees for expert reports and/or testimony. Attorneys and team members’ hourly rate sheets are available upon request.

  • NOTICE: This office does not represent you with regard to the matters set forth by you herein in this INITIAL MATTER EVALUATION until both you and the Firm enter into a Legal Representation Agreement and the Initial Retainer has been paid. Your electronic signature acknowledges only that you received a copy of this completed information sheet and does not reflect an agreement by either yourself or the Firm to enter into any formal Attorney-Client Agreement. You acknowledge the same by executing below.

From the heart – Thank You

Thank you for contacting Burnham Law. We are grateful for the opportunity to earn your trust. The requested information contained in this form will allow us to review, evaluate, and preliminarily determine if your legal matter is a good fit for both our team and you/your needs. Our firm takes pride in providing excellent legal representation, which starts with knowing all of the essential preliminary facts.

What’s next?

The requested information will be used by Burnham Law to offer consultations and to both evaluate your family law legal matter and perform our standard, yet thorough, conflict check. We will notify you via email, typically within 24 hours, advising you of the firm’s review of the provided information and whether we are able to proceed and discuss your matter in more detail. If this is an urgent matter (emergency motions pending/required, arrest pending) please immediately call our office at (303) 647-9767 and notify us of the matter’s urgency and we will attempt to expedite our preliminary review.

Our Promise to you

Excellent, effective, strategic, and successful legal representation is based primarily upon evaluating accurate data. If the opposing party’s data is missing (financials, etc.), the law allows for processes and procedures, which lead to us receiving and ultimately evaluating the “big picture.” We are then able to develop a successful strategy, implement a plan of action, and immediately thereafter move forward.

The information requested below is critical for both the preliminary consultation/initial evaluation (with conflict check) and subsequent cost-effective legal representation. The information you provide is confidential, and it remains confidential if it is later decided that Burnham Law is not going to represent you in this matter.

results driven. Always confidential.

This is a results-driven law firm that equally emphasizes value-based representation. We are thorough, strategic, and aggressive when necessary. And it all begins with you taking the time to invest in your case. If you do, this initial case evaluation will help you move forward with more knowledge and you will be better suited to be your own advocate. Knowledge is Power!

The attorney-client relationship is not established until you and I sign a Legal Representation Agreement, but the information you provide is indeed confidential…so provide the truth.

Now and again – Always available.

Once the executed Conflict Check/Case Evaluation Form is electronically submitted, we will immediately review the submission as noted above and we will contact you as soon as possible for your consultation. We understand your urgency. Do not hesitate to call the office to receive updated estimated review completion timeframes.
