Accordingly, the rate we will charge will be either a flat rate or an hourly rate. Before we begin representation, we require an initial payment and a signed Fee Agreement. Depending on the service provided, you may be required to pay a retainer.
If a retainer is required, the amount depends on the case, but usually begins at $2,500.00. We then bill our time against that retainer. If the retainer is almost depleted, we may require an additional retainer if it appears the case has become more time consuming than initially anticipated. Of course, where it is appropriate, we will seek to have the other party reimburse you for your attorneys' fees.
