No doubt you want to speak to a lawyer about the bittorrent lawsuit / ISP subpoena that you have received. *I get that*, and I will do whatever I can to at a very minimum give you a speedy response, even if I cannot take you as a client.
Our law firm (meaning, “I”) will do my best to answer your call, and I will spend as much time with you on the phone as you need so that you at least do not panic about the case which is allegedly trying to take $150,000 (or some $10,000+ settlement) out of your pocket or home.
I have a pretty terribly-written web page at http://www.cashmanlawfirm.com/, but on there are links to reviews and comments people have written about how I have helped them whether or not they ended up being my client:
I am not committing to take you as a client; I do not charge for our phone appointments. So, consider this as a “free consultation,” (or more as a friendly voice from someone who gets bored and enjoys talking to people,) but be aware that I might be working on a case while I am speaking to you, or that there might be interruptions which might pull me away from a call.
I am currently actively working on the following cases (filed in multiple states across the U.S., so while there are tweaks to be made from one federal court to another [different judges, different local rules], the copyright holder remains the same entity).
- RIGHTS ENFORCEMENT (‘EVIL TWIN’ OF CEG-TEK)
- MALIBU MEDIA, LLC (“X-ART” SITERIPS)
- ME2 PRODUCTIONS (“MECHANIC: RESURRECTION”)
- I.T. PRODUCTIONS (“I.T.” MOVIE)
- COOK PRODUCTIONS, LLC (“MR. CHURCH”), and
- SIEMENS INDUSTRY SOFTWARE INC. (FORMERLY, “SIEMENS PLM”)
SCENARIO 1: IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN, OR IF YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO ME ABOUT YOUR MATTER, I INVITE YOU TO USE THE CONTACT FORM BELOW.
CONTACT FORM: If you have a question or comment about what I have written, and you want to keep it *for my eyes only*, please feel free to use the form below. The information you post will be e-mailed to me, and I will be happy to respond.
SCENARIO 2: ASSUMING YOU WANT ME TO REPRESENT YOU IN THE CASE OR NEGOTIATE A RELEASE AND DISMISSAL FROM THE CASE, NEGOTIATE A SETTLEMENT (OR AN ANONYMOUS SETTLEMENT), OR HAVE ME REPRESENT YOU IN THE COURTROOM.
Follow these three steps below to have me represent you in your lawsuit (again, I do limit the number of clients I take (and here is why), and I do limit the number of time slots I make available each day):
1. Schedule a phone appointment for us to have a few minutes to speak about your lawsuit, your plaintiff ‘copyright troll’, what we know about them, and what we have achieved in the past with other clients.
2. Get, sign, and return retainer agreement (either I or one of my assistants would need to e-mail this to you after our call. I do not make them readily available so that hundreds of John Doe defendants can hire me at the same time — I just don’t work that way, and this is a good thing).
3. Sit back, relax, and let us work on your behalf to get you the results you need.
After scheduling your appointment online, you will be contacted by phone at the specified date and time by a Cashman Law Firm, PLLC attorney.
SCENARIO 3: IF ALL ELSE FAILS AND YOU CANNOT REACH ME THROUGH THE WEB FORM, OR IF YOU CANNOT FIND AN OPEN TIME-SLOT ON THE APPOINTMENT PAGE, I’M PROVIDING MY CONTACT INFORMATION. USE IT SPARINGLY.
Obviously I don’t want you calling me while I am in court, and I don’t want you e-mailing me without first reading the relevant articles about your case. I’ll get you where you want to go in order to get out of trouble, but I won’t do it for you. In other words, I’m not teaching you about this case from scratch or doing some dance in order for you to decide to retain me as your attorney.
But I am providing my phone number to you and my e-mail to you — these will break through all the barriers and you will reach me this way. But respect this information and use it sparingly.
[And as silly as this sounds, I have written SEVEN YEARS worth of blogs without referencing myself once. That sounds self-deprecating, but really, I am simply trying to get resources and information in your hands. So my name is “Rob Cashman.” Please don’t call me Ron, or some other name, because that does annoy me. Take the time to pay attention to learn my name if you want to speak to me.] 🙂
Lastly, I know I often have 100+ people contacting me, and I only provide a handful of phone consultations or appointments. If you need my help, whether or not I become your attorney, *I WILL HAPPILY TAKE THE TIME TO SPEAK TO YOU, AND EVEN SPEND WHATEVER TIME IS NECESSARY (TIME PERMITTING) TO HOLD YOUR HAND.*
So if you need to speak to me after-hours or outside my set schedule, that’s ok too.
NOTE: No attorney client relationship is established by sending a web form or an e-mail, and while the attorney-client privilege (which keeps everything that you share with confidential and private) attaches immediately when you contact me, I do not become your attorney until we sign a contract together. That being said, please do not state anything “incriminating” about your case when using this form, or more practically, in any e-mail.
