Attorney's Fees

Initial Consultation 

Let's make sure our firm is a good fit.  Schedule a discovery consultation (25 min.) with me to discuss your legal issue.  

$150 (25 min.)

Sliding Scale Hourly Rates

Our firm charges $350 per hour for legal services.  However, to make our services more accessible, we provide a sliding scale based on verifiable income.

$350 per hour (standard)

$450 per hour (expedited legal services)

Flat Rate Billling

Our firm charges flat rates for limited scope representation (i.e. contract review, non-litigation representation, and legal counseling).  **Please note that some types of cases are not suitable for flat rate billing.**

$750+ per service

Mixed Billing Structures

Our firm may offer you a mixed billing structure: a smaller upfront retainer with a percentage of proceeds from the settlement or judgment.  

Example: $1,500 + 20% of settlement

Contingency Fee Arrangements

A contingency fee arrangement is where the attorney is paid from the proceeds of the case settlement or judgment.  This type of arrangement is common in civil rights litigation, but requires the firm to take on most of the risk associated with litigation.  The firm may require a retainer to cover the costs of litigation (i.e. filing fees, printing/mailing fees, etc.).  Please see the example below for illustrative purposes only.

Settlement Amount: $100,000

Litigation Costs: $8,000

Attorney's Fees: $30,000

Net to Client: $62,000

30% of Award + Costs of Litigation
