Fees and Services

Contingency Fees

When we represent victims and their families in accident, injury and death cases, we are compensated through contingency fees. In these cases, there is no fee to our office unless the client gets paid.

Set Fees

Some cases and services are best suited by set legal fees. These fees are payable at the beginning of the representation or from periodic billing as the representation progresses.

Divorce, Family Law

These cases are usually handled on an hourly fee arrangement. When we agree to represent a client on an hourly basis, we usually receive a retainer in a negotiated amount, and the client is thereafter billed, usually monthly for fees, if any, above the amount of the retainer.

Real Estate

These types of cases usually are handled on an hourly fee basis. A simple house closing, however, is usually a negotiated set fee.

Hourly Rates

Certain cases are best handled with hourly billing.  These cases may include defendant clients in civil litigation, or the sale and purchase of a business, as well as any other case where the client and we agree that hourly fees are appropriate.
