Prioritizing Transparency In Our Legal Fees
Fees You Can Afford,
We challenge you to find many other law firms that will disclose their fees online. We strive to be very transparent to avoid surprises.
Keep reading to learn how we do it.
All new potential clients are offered a free 15-minute telephone consultation. This is our opportunity to discuss your legal issue, answer some basic questions, make recommendations, and discuss cost estimates.
We also offer full consultations that typically last 60 to 90 minutes. We can meet in our office or talk by telephone; whichever you prefer. Full consultations are billed at the attorney’s normal hourly rate.
Affordable Hourly Rates
Many matters are billed hourly because it is often impossible to predict the exact amount of time necessary to deliver the best outcome for our clients. This is true for most law firms; however, our hourly rates are more affordable than others, as shown below:
$275/hr. Our average hourly rate ($200-$350)
$332/hr. Industry average (all practice areas)*
*US average among all lawyers in small law firms (1-50 lawyers).

Many law firms will pass certain costs to their clients as “case expenses.” We do not. Here are just a few examples of expenses that are no charge to our clients:
- No charge for regular postage
- No charge for regular copies
- No charge for legal research subscriptions
- No charge for administrative tasks
- No charge for meals and other local expenses while traveling
- No charge to review billing and prepare invoices
