What Is My Fee?
20 years experience
If you are interested in becoming a client, we will set up an initial meeting lasting roughly an hour. The fee for this initial meeting is $325.
During our first meeting, we will determine what your needs are, whether I can help, and if we are a good fit.
At the end of the first meeting, if you want to retain my services for further work, it will be my goal to offer you a flat fee, which means you pay me an agreed upon amount ahead of time that I keep safely in my client trust account while the work gets done. Then you do not have to worry about whether you are going to be charged if you call me and I don’t have to worry if you’ll pay for my time to do additional legal research.
I find that most people prefer to know in advance what the fees will be so I always try to set a flat fee to cover all the work that needs to be done ahead of time. This works well for things like drafting documents or filing for Medicaid.
For situations where I do not know in advance how much time I will need to spend to help you, I do typically charge by the hour. Examples of matters that I charge by the hour for are the vast majority of matters that go before the court (probate, guardianships, conservatorships, etc).
