Questions and Answers about Attorney Fees

How are attorney fees determined?

  • Each potential client has an initial consultation with one of our attorneys where they are able to share their situation and explain the facts and their goals for their case. Our experienced attorneys listen and evaluate how simple or complicated the case is, as well as determine the best legal strategy to obtain the outcome the client desires and once they have a clear picture of the situation, the attorney can offer the amount of their retainer fee. Each case is unique and personalized for the situation, so a “one-size-fits-all fee” is not appropriate. It would not be fair to clients to post a general fee for each service. Rest assured that our attorneys charge what is fair for each case based on:
    • the issues presented in the case
    • the estimated time for the required legal services

Why do you not offer free consultations?

  • Our attorneys are highly skilled and experienced. Their time and expertise are of premium value. They will provide clear and concise legal options and solutions for your unique case. Your discounted consultation fee is applied to reduce to your retainer. Call our Intake Specialist for details.

What is a non-refundable retainer?

  • Each client pays a non-refundable fee to retain their chosen attorney’s time, knowledge, and services for a best-estimated time frame to the completion of the client’s case. By this agreement, the attorney estimates the services required and reserves dedicated time and energy to work on the client’s case – which means the attorney is accessible to the client when needed (by appointment and when available) and not accessible to those who have not retained the attorney’s services. As the attorney provides legal services, the firm bills monthly against the non-refundable retainer and keeps the client informed of the services and billing of their case.

What can I do to keep my attorney fees from adding up?

  • When both spouses can agree, this would be the least costly way to avoid adding up the attorney fee. Where the opposite is also true, when both parties cannot agree, the attorney will guide your case in a way to avoid costly litigation fees.

How do I pay my fees?

  1. Paper or electronic check or ACH (automated deduction from the client’s designated checking account). Minimum merchant fees apply.
  1. Credit cardMinimum merchant fees apply.
    1. in person
    2. by phone (authorized by client)
    3. by accessing LawPay payment link on our website
  1. In cash at the firm office, at which time a written receipt will be generated for you upon request.

Can I make payments, or must I pay retainer in one lump sum?

  • Reasonable payment arrangements can be made.

How do I determine if I am able to afford attorney fees?

  • The first step in determining whether you can afford attorney fees is by scheduling a consultation with a member of the firm. During this initial conversation, you should be prepared to discuss the details of your legal situation and your goals and needs. This information allows the attorney to determine the complexity of your case and estimate legal services require to complete you case. Both varies that factor into the retainer amount. Because all cases are unique, the cost for your case will vary for each specific situation.
  • Next, you should ensure that you have a stable income. If delays or other complications come up during your case, you might incur costs above the non-refundable retainer. You must be sure that you can cover any fees that might arise in the future.
