A successful representation only happens when we obtain your desired result at an affordable price. This starts with a conversation about:
- the client’s objectives;
- the nature of the legal work;
- the likelihood of success;
- the existence of specific deadlines;
- the amount of work to be performed by the client;
- the distribution of the financial risk between the client and the firm; and,
- the specific fee agreement and/or payment terms.
There are a number of different fee arrangements that can be tailored to meet your specific needs:
Hourly Rate Billing
Our hourly rates are set on a case by case basis. We consider a number of factors including: (1) the complexity of the matter; (2) the novelty and difficulty of the specific legal questions involved; (3) the anticipated volume and frequency of the business; and (4) the expected demands on the firm’s resources. Our hourly rates usually range between $275.00 to $395.00 an hour.
Modified Hourly Rate
A modified hourly rate is hybrid arrangement where provide our services at a discounted hourly rate in return for a success or performance fee. This additional fee is typically based on the results obtained and/or the savings achieved.
With a fixed fee, we agree with the client up front on the total amount of legal fees and costs that the client will pay. The fixed fee may be paid up front or at predetermined benchmarks.
When we agree to take a case on a contingency fee, we will work on your case without any charge unless a settlement or verdict is obtained. Our contingency fees are set on a case by case basis. They generally range from 25% to 50% of the recovery obtained.
