A short presentation

My name is Marie-Andrée Weiss and I am an attorney admitted in New York State. I am also accredited to practice before the Department of Veterans Affairs. I passed the French bar exam for foreign attorneys.

This is how I work with clients: as I am a solo attorney, I can take only a limited number of cases, so I can concentrate on all my client’s issues.

If I am able to help you, I will send you a proposal, stating what I would do for you, how much work I anticipate will be necessary, and how much I will charge you for my services. If you accept this proposal and would like to hire me as an attorney, I will forward you an engagement letter that you will return to me after having signed it.

Once I become your attorney, I will return phone calls and emails within 24 hours, sooner than that in most cases.
