Legal Fees

Legal fees typically are one of the top concerns of clients and rightly so. My custom and practice is to bill clients in one of two ways.

Flat Fees

Whenever possible, attorney’s fees are charged at a flat rate. Assume, for example, that you need a privacy policy for a dating site. You will receive a written flat fee proposal of $X, which will be the fee even if more time is spent completing the document than anticipated.

Hourly Rates

In certain instances, flat-rate billing simply isn’t possible. Clients are charged legal fees at a rate of $250 per hour in such situations.

Payment Plans

I do offer payment plans on occasion. Whether to do so is decided on a case-by-case basis. Contact me to learn more.
