We provide our clients with multiple payment options, letting you pick what option works best for you:
Retainer: Clients who decide to pay a retainer deposit money into a trust account. Those funds will be used for their legal fees and other costs, such as court filing fees. If the case ends and money remains in the trust account, the client receives a refund. The amount of the retainer is not a prediction of the total cost of the case.
Monthly Basis: Clients who elect to pay each invoice on a monthly basis can do so by placing a credit card on file and authorizing us to charge the monthly amount of each invoice. This provides flexibility for clients who do not want to pay a retainer at the start, or want to shift to paying on a monthly basis.
Third Party Payment: In some instances, clients will have a family member or friend assist them with their legal fees. If someone other than the client will be responsible for paying legal fees, the family member or friend can decide to either pay a retainer or be charged on a monthly basis.
Rates: Our attorneys bill at an hourly rate of $250.00 per hour. There is no standard retainer, but our attorneys will quote you a retainer at the end of the free phone consultation.
For mediation services, our hourly rate is $200.00 per hour. For a half-day mediation (4 hours), the cost is $800 and normally each party puts down a $400 retainer in advance. For a full-day mediation (8 hours), the cost is $1,600 and normally each party puts down a $800 retainer in advance. If mediation is concluded prior to the expiration of the time allotted, then you will receive a refund back.
