Fees

I provide you with legal services that are affordable and convenient. My consultations start at 30 minutes for $125 (longer paid consultations are available). All of the following fees are starting prices, which means I may need to charge you more based on your specific situation. I will let you know the cost when we discuss your situation so you aren’t surprised at any time. Fees may change without notice. Filing fees are additional and are either noted below or I will discuss them with you before beginning any work on your legal matter. I generally charge flat rate fees, which means you know how much you will pay for legal services before I begin any work. My hourly rate is currently $250/hour for matters that I do on an hourly basis
