Fees

I know that my clients want to have an idea of how much their legal matter costs before talking with me. For that reason, I have listed my fees on this page. All of the following fees are starting prices, which means I may need to charge you more based on your specific situation. I charge flat rate fees, which means you know how much you will pay for legal services before I begin any work. Filing fees are additional and are either noted below or I will discuss them with you before beginning any work on your legal matter. My hourly rate is currently $250/hour for matters that I do on an hourly basis. My consultations start at 30 minutes for $125 (longer paid consultations are available). Discounts may be available for multiple trademarks, multiple contracts, or in other special circumstances.
