Cost-Effective Legal Advice
Legal advice should be cost-effective. Perhaps the best method for obtaining cost-effective services is hiring the right lawyer: we believe that a lawyer is someone who is attentive, with experience and efficient habits.
From time to time, people will call our office and ask, “What does it cost for a particular project?” Because the work we do is unique to you and your particular needs, there is no one price that fits all situations.
How we charge for our services depends on the engagement. We believe in the importance of matching the billing method to the client. We also firmly believe in the following:
- Creating value for our clients.
- Building our attorney-client relationships based in mutual respect and trust
- Exceeding our client’s expectations
- Maintaining our reputation for good business
To meet our goal and have a potential client understand their financial commitment, we offer a free consultation to develop the requirements of the project. Only then will we quote a fee for our services – before the work begins. If you feel the fee is not within your budget, just say so and there is no further obligation to us.
Ultimately, our goal is to charge reasonable fees for our services. That may mean billing by the hour or the project (“lump sum”). It may mean an alternative billing arrangement. We pride ourselves on flexibility in determining the appropriate method.
