FEES/HOURLY RATES

Transparent and Predictable Pricing

In our experience, a successful representation happens when we obtain the desired result for the client at a predictable and affordable price. To achieve this, we will work with you to accurately estimate the total time and expense that will be required, and then to identify the fee arrangement that bests fits your particular situation.

Establishing the right fee agreement starts with a conversation about:

  • the ultimate goals and objectives;
  • the nature and complexity of the legal work;
  • the likelihood of a successful outcome;
  • the existence of specific deadlines;
  • the access to our lawyers that the client needs;
  • the work that can be performed by the client;
  • the distribution of the financial risk between the client and the firm; and
  • whether the client needs special payment terms.

There are several different fee arrangements that can be tailored to meet your specific needs:

Hourly Rate Billing

Hourly rate billing is the most common method of paying for legal services. Our hourly rates are based an evaluation of the complexity, novelty and difficulty of the legal questions involved, the total volume of business, and the anticipated overall demands on the firm’s resources and time. Our hourly rates range between $225.00 to $350.00 an hour.

Modified Hourly Rate

A modified hourly rate is hybrid arrangement where the lawyer performs the legal work at a discounted hourly rate along with a success or performance fee.  The success fee is typically based on the results obtained and/or the savings achieved.

Fixed Fee

With a fixed fee, the client and the lawyer agree on the total amount that the lawyer will be paid for handling the matter. The agreed fee may be paid up front, or it may be paid at predetermined benchmarks.

Contingency/Success Fee

With a contingency fee, our firm does not get paid unless there is a settlement or judgment. Depending on the case, our firm may also advance the costs of the litigation. Our contingency/success fees typically range from 25% to 50% of the total recovery.
