A Word About Fees
“How much is it going to cost?” We base fees on the estimated time needed to handle your case completely. Fees are something to talk about after we have discussed the facts of your case.
A fair fee is tied to the time it takes to resolve your problem. The less you pay, the less time a lawyer can give to your case. No good attorney will quote a fee without knowing what your case is about. Beware of “flat fees.” They have a way of ballooning after you’ve been hooked. Remember there are usually no flat fees for most divorces, DUI’s, and criminal cases.
We offer pay-as-you-go plans, we accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. We put fee agreements in writing so there are no surprises and no misunderstandings.
