PAYMENT / FEES
We strive to make sure that our services are affordable and offer a variety of fee arrangements and payment options to ensure that our services are available to as many people as possible. If you have any questions about fees, please contact us to discuss your options. We will work with you to make sure that you get the representation you need.
FLAT RATE BILLING
We prefer to bill our clients on a flat-rate basis if possible. We will quote you a specific dollar amount for certain matters, and we won’t charge you anything more, regardless of how much time we spend on your case. This benefits our clients, who can rest assured that if they need to call us and ask a question or if their matter requires some additional work, they won’t have to worry about being “nickel-and-dimed” for our extra attention.
We offer hourly rate billing for certain ongoing matters. Hourly billing may be advantageous to certain clients because we only charge for the time we actually work. We utilize modern billing programs to track the time spent on your matter, and send you an invoice for all work performed at the end of the month.
Some matters require the advance payment of a retainer fee. We will bill against your retainer account at our hourly rate, and when your retainer is exhausted we will ask you to replenish it. This arrangement allows you to budget for our services and pay incrementally, as your case proceeds.
When we take your case on contingency, we advance all of the costs of pursuing your claim in exchange for a certain percentage of any judgment or settlement that is reached. Contingency fees allow you to pursue your claim without worrying about the expense, because it won’t cost you a dime unless we win or settle your case.
All fee arrangements require the execution of a fee agreement between us and the client. Please contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you.
