Most clients consider our fees to be quite reasonable.
Upon hiring our firm, you will receive a fee agreement spelling out the terms of our representation.
Our legal fees for criminal and DUI cases vary depending on several factors, including the particular charge, the level of the crime, the court where the charge is filed and the penalties you would be facing. We can usually give you a quote right over the phone.
For these cases, we charge a flat fee that covers everything short of a trial, and trial fees are clearly explained in the fee agreement. However, statistically, 98 % of cases are resolved without a trial, making the original fee amount all our clients have to pay in most cases.
With our flat fee structure, you know exactly what you have to pay from the get-go, and you don’t have to worry about some unexpected bill coming to you in the future.
There are very few exceptions to this flat fee structure.
Domestic Relations cases require the payment of a retainer and are handled through hourly billing, deducted from the retainer as work is being done on your case.
You will receive a statement on a weekly basis, and be required to replenish your retainer when the amount is below a determined level.
Estate Planning fees can be either flat fees or hourly fees depending on the nature of the matter to handle.
Probate fees are determined by the court and distributed when the case is closed.
There are a few exceptions though, namely when the estate is very small and would not cover the cost of the lawyer’s time. In such cases, we may ask for a retainer ahead of time.
Our firm does not cut corners when handling your case, so we expect to be paid timely in order to maintain our high standard of service.
We accept cash, checks, Echecks, money orders, and credit card payments. Payments can be done in-person, via phone or our portal.
