FEES - OVERVIEW
See terms of representation. We provide flat fees with no hidden costs where we know the amount of work required. We work on a percentage basis where allowed by the ethics rules which means that we do not get paid unless you get paid. We work on an hourly basis with a retainer in all other cases. We keep our fees in line with the competition and we will match most written quotes if you provide the quote to us. Congratulations on your decision to contact our law firm. We know this is a very difficult time in your life. You are making the right choice to seek legal advice if you have found yourself thinking you need to call a lawyer. Many people wait until it is too late. Our firm is one of only a few law firms that restrict their practice solely to family matters like yours. We have developed our entire staff, systems and procedures around helping people who:
- need to avert a major family or financial catastrophe;
- seek the best in family and divorce planning or criminal defense with long-term positive results in mind;
- want to be represented by a unique team that has received the highest recognitions available in this community as well as state and nationally.
