I understand that most people are on a budget these days, and that you pay attention to every penny you spend. In order to keep legal services affordable, I offer many of my services on a flat fee basis. That means you pay a set price for legal services, such as a will plan or business incorporation, and you don’t have to worry about being billed for every phone call or email contact with me. If a project requires work that does not fit into my flat fee schedule, then I discuss an hourly rate before the project begins and keep you updated on costs throughout the legal process so that you do not incur unexpected legal costs. If I take a case that may require litigation, I will either quote you an hourly rate or discuss a split fee arrangement comprised of an upfront fee and a contingency fee. I do not post my fees on the website because each case is unique, and I prefer to discuss costs after first exploring the legal situation with you so I understand your individual legal needs.
I often have people ask me if I can help them even though they are on a tight budget, such as a single mom going to school who wants an estate plan to protect her kids. I like to help people whenever I can, so while I can’t make any guarantees, please feel free to contact me to discuss your situation and see if a payment plan or sliding fee scale might work for both of us.
