Retainer fee

The amount of fees you initially pay to handle to your legal matter depends on what we feel will cover our attorney fees for the duration of your case. Any and all fees you pay under a retainer fee agreement are deposited into an account from which we pay our firm as we earn those fees. Any unused portion remaining at the end of your case will be refunded to you.

The retainer fee we quote is not a guarantee that your case will only cost you that amount. It may costs more money and we reserve the right to charge you additional sums when necessary. Also, you are responsible for any out-of-pocket cases (expert fees, filing fees postage, copy costs, facsimile costs and travel expenses, if applicable).

Flat fee

This is the total attorney fee that our office charges you for our services. As with retainer fees, you are responsible for any out-of-pocket cases (expert fees, filing fees postage, copy costs, facsimile costs and travel expenses, if applicable).

Contingency fee

With this arrangement, we are entitled to a portion of the proceeds you receive from any settlement or judgment in your case. As with the other types of fee arrangements, you are responsible for any out-of-pocket cases (expert fees, filing fees postage, copy costs, facsimile costs and travel expenses, if applicable).

We also are a participating law firm/member of several legal insurance plans.  Please contact our office or your legal insurance provider to confirm the services covered by your plan.
