The firm charges competitive rates and are typically less than large law firm rates. We believe clients like to know what legal services will cost and not be surprised.

As a result, we strive to scope out the agreed upon work first with our clients and quote a fixed fee for the project based on what the clients and their attorney have decided is appropriate. Typically for our estate planning clients, one-half of that fee is due at the outset and the balance upon conclusion (often document delivery).  Our other ares of work that we are most often able to quote fixed fees include Medicaid consults, business formation, and other corporate work.

Sometimes, hour work is unavoidable because the scope of the work is not easily defined.  This type of work includes probate and trust settlements, for example. Here, we strive to achieve value for clients by having work done at the appropriate staffing level and often will agree upon a 'cap' or regular monthly bills so that clients do not become surprised. In most of these cases, we will ask for a retainer amount to be paid prior to beginning the work.

In any event, we always work with clients based on a written engagement letter that sets forth our agreement with respect to fees. For a copy of our current rate schedule, please contact any attorney at the Firm. We do not quote rates over the phone or via e-mail but will be happy to offer an initial complimentary meeting to help us understand whether we are a good fit.
