Please contact us for more information about a rate tailored to your specific representation. We work with clients to find an affordable solution to the cost of representation and make every effort to keep the costs of legal representation affordable. Most services are billed at an hourly rate of $250. An initial 2 hour consult can be scheduled in a family or protections order matter.
The firm charges for initial family matter consultations at the rate of $300 per hour. We charge for these consultations because by discussing your case it means we cannot undertake to represent opposing parties or that we may also have to forego other representation as well due to rules governing representation and conflict.
The exceptions to this policy are criminal cases that have no initial consultation fee and certain injury cases where a contingent fee arrangement is the tradition.
During a consultation, you will discuss the details of your situation and the legal options available to you. Please bring with you any documents pertinent to your matter including all court documents, current financial information, photographs or other material which will be helpful in assessing your case.
In certain situations a payment plan is possible. This option will be discussed during your consultation.
