Legal Fee Overview
Criminal Defense - Every case is different, and we tailor our fees to the case based on a myriad of factors, including the nature of the charge and the seriousness level of the offense, among others. Our fees are typically flat fees that cover work to defend a case through disposition at the trial level and would not include any appeal. We are upfront and forthright about our fees so that there are no surprises. Please contact us to discuss your case so that we can provide you a fee quote.
Personal Injury - We charge no consultation fee on personal injury cases, which includes auto accidents, insurance claims, medical malpractice cases and a host of other specific cases that arise out of the negligence, recklessness or intentional wrongdoing of another. We also practice no recovery/no fee, meaning we charge no fee unless and until we reach a recovery on your behalf, and then we charge only a percentage of the recovery. This is called a contingency fee arrangement, which we set forth in writing at the beginning of the case, specifying the percentage of the amount recovered we are to receive as a fee for our services.
Family Law - We charge a flat rate for uncontested actions. For contested actions, we typically charge an up-front minimum fee and retainer. This means we charge a certain minimum fee which also serves as a retainer, against which we bill at our hourly rate. We bill above this fee only if and when the time invested exhausts the retainer.
