THE COST OF PLANNING
Every case is different, but whenever possible, we use a flat-fee for our legal services, rather than billing by the hour. We find our clients appreciate our fixed fees, rather than the uncertainty that comes with hourly billing. Flat fees help our clients understand exactly what our services cost, and we find it encourages communication because clients are able to call with any question without worry that they will be billed for additional time.
When considering whether our firm is the right fit for your legal needs, it is important to consider the cost of planning. We hope that you find confidence in our fee philosophy, in our expertise, and in our standard of service.
