Legal Consultation

SONY DSCWe provide legal consultation at our office in Kawasaki, Kanagawa (10-20 minutes by train from Tokyo or Yokohama). Consultation fee is 5,500 yen (30 minutes) for individual cases, and 11,000 yen (30 minutes) for business (corporate) cases. Please make a reservation from the contact form.

Q: How can I make a reservation?

A: Please send several dates and times of your convenience from the contact form. We will check our schedule and let you know when we can meet you at our office.

Q: Where is the office?

A: See the Access page.

Q: When is the office open?

A: Generally from 9:30AM to 5:30PM on weekdays.

Q: Is it possible for a lawyer to come to my place?

A: It depends on cases. Please send the detail of your case, and where you are. If the lawyer is required to travel, you shall bear the cost for travel, and also the per diem fee.

Q: Can you provide the consultation via phone or Skype?

A: No. We do not provide initial consultation by telephone or Skype. This is because it is very difficult to correctly understand the legal problems over the phone, and a small misunderstanding can cause you a big trouble for legal cases. We do not provide initial consultation over telephone or skype even for Japanese people.

For people who cannot come to our office, we provide legal research and advice service via email, so consider using this service.

Q: Can you guarantee that the attorney will handle my case?

A: No. At the consultation, we provide general information and advice about legal matters. The attorneys will decide if we can handle the actual case or not, depending on the information we get at the consultation meeting (there are several situations when we cannot handle the case). Even if the attorney does not handle your case, the consultation fee will not be refunded (consultation fee is the fee for consultation only).
