Initial Consultation Instructions and Policy Information
Phone Consultations are performed directly by me, Attorney Ali Ebrahimzadeh, and not by a junior associate, law clerk, or paralegal like at so many law firms. I am the attorney who personally performs all work on my clients’ cases because that is the way it should be. Better still, I am easy to reach: just call and you’ll see! To get started, we have a Phone Consultation where we discuss the details of your legal issue, review a few pages of your emailed related documents, discuss possible legal strategies, and consider your budget for representation. Should you decide to hire me, this crucial Initial Consultation would help you understand the exact scope of representation that you require. In much the same way you must meet and consult with a physician before you receive a prescription or have a minor procedure performed, this Initial Consultation helps us figure out what I can do for you and what your budget is. I can briefly review up to 3 or 4 pages of documents emailed in .pdf format and only during a 30-minute or 1-Hour Phone Consultation. Before you pay for a Phone Consultation, please make sure you and I have first had a brief phone conversation about your legal concerns to make sure that I offer representation regarding your type of issue and in your jurisdiction. Free 5-minute Phone Consultations are provided at attorney discretion and only for the most simple issues.
I work as a solo practitioner attorney primarily from my home office in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA. I am of course able to travel at a client’s expense to any destination in California, Massachusetts, and Washington, DC for legal representation of a client. Relying on high-speed modern transportation, email, video conferencing, telephone, and elegant local office meeting and package delivery locations in the states where I practice, I offer outstanding and responsive legal representation to my clients.
“Ali is a passionate advocate who will fight tooth and nail for his clients. While he is an aggressive litigator, he never abandons reason and will always keep his eyes on the path to the best result. I highly recommend Ali, not only as a tough and dedicated lawyer, but as a person.”
– Josh Bryan, Attorney-at-Law, Walnut Creek, CA, December 6, 2010.
Remember that whether we have a Phone Consultation or whether you email me, such communications do not in and of themselves create an Attorney-Client relationship between us. The only way that I form an Attorney-Client relationship is by way of a formal and mutually signed Attorney-Client Contract. I practice law only in California (state and federal courts), Massachusetts, and Washington DC. In basic terms, in order for me to be able to discuss your matter or provide you representation, you, your case, your legal issue, or the opposing party must reside in and be jurisdictionally tied to one of these states. You can learn more about jurisdiction here on the CA Courts website.
You must make an Appointment for an Initial Consultation if you wish to discuss your question or case with me, Ali Ebrahimzadeh. I can provide you a Phone Consultation Appointment with me often the same day that you call me to request one, or within a few business days. Please first call me to make sure that I can meet for your prospective Appointment at a date and time that is mutually convenient. Be sure to read all about my Initial Consultation Appointments and my limited Refund Policy on this page. Next, pay for your Initial Consultation by clicking on the PayPal “Pay Now” box above. Finally, call me to confirm your Appointment time and date.
To facilitate the process when making a payment via the “Pay Now” button above, please do not log-in to your PayPal account even if you have a PayPal account. Rather, proceed on the linked PayPal page as though you do not have a PayPal account by clicking on the appropriate button to pay with your Debit or Credit Card. On the PayPal page, simply provide all the requested payment information, and submit your payment by clicking the appropriate boxes. The charge may appear on your credit card statement as “LAWYER*PROMETHEUSLAW.COM.”
“I just wanted to thank you for your time, you really built up my confidence and gave me hope. You made me feel like I have a chance to make things right. I felt like I didn’t know how to defend myself because of my wife and her attorney. I feel like you are the right person to represent me . . . I feel like at this time I have no other choice and I need to start taking care of myself. I wish I would have found you earlier . . .”

For Initial Consultation payments, I only accept credit cards issued by banks in the USA. It is very important that you remain flexible about the date and time for your appointment, and that you are timely responsive to help me provide you with a Consultation after you pay for one. Please note that all Consultation payments made without prior written approval of a confirmed appointment time and date will be applied to setting a Phone Consultation appointment for you that will take place within seven (7) calendar days of the time of your payment, and such appointment time will be set based solely upon my schedule and availability. I cannot accept or approve any requests for a cancellation or rescheduling for any appointment. If you do not use all of the time of your Initial Consultation appointment, I do not refund you for the unused portion of that time nor will I continue the remaining or unused time of your appointment to a later date or time. To commence your Initial Consultation appointment, you must call me at 877-583-4231 at the exact time of commencement of your appointment, otherwise you will forfeit any lost time if you call me late. Requests for a refund must be made at least two (2) business days before the appointment time. If you fail to appear for your appointment, you will totally forfeit your payment for the Consultation. I also reserve the right to refuse any request for a refund if I rejected another prospective client’s appointment request in favor of yours.
“Dear Aly, I just wanted to say thank you for seeing my daughter and me yesterday regarding our inquiries to get some peaceable communications set up between parents. You were so encouraging to the both of us. I look forward to some positive outcome from what has been a rather bumpy road. Thank you again.”
