Expungement Interview Form

Please read the following prior to completing the information requested and contact us if you have any questions before proceeding with the appointment.

The purpose of an initial consultation is for the attorney to advise the prospective client of legal remedies available for a particular situation and to estimate the minimum legal fees required. The purpose is not to render a definite legal opinion as it may be impossible to fully assess a matter within the time frame allotted for a consultation with the information/documents you may be able to provide at the initial consultation.

One of three outcomes is possible following your consultation: 1) you and the attorney agree to terms of representation and each sign a Contract for representation (no client is represented without a contract); or 2) the attorney declines representation; or 3) you decide not to pursue the matter with representation by King Law Offices.

By submitting this form, you agree that you have read the rule stated below and understand the North Carolina Bar Rule 1:18 and understand that you will only reveal information that is reasonably necessary to obtain information for the purpose of retaining King Law Offices.

The North Carolina Bar Rule 1:18

[4] In order to avoid acquiring disqualifying information from a prospective client, a lawyer considering whether or not to undertake a new matter should limit the initial interview to only such information as reasonably appears necessary for that purpose. Where the information indicates that a conflict of interest or other reason for no-representation exists, the lawyer should so inform the prospective client or decline the representation. If the prospective client wishes to retain the lawyer and if consent is possible under Rule 1.7, then consent from all affected present or former clients must be obtained before accepting the representation.

[5] A lawyer may condition conversations with a prospective client on the person’s informed consent that no information disclosed during the consultation will prohibit the lawyer from representing a different client in the matter. See Rule 1.0(f) for the definition of informed consent. If the agreement expressly so provides, the prospective client may also consent to the lawyer’s subsequent use of information received from the prospective client.
