We strongly recommend filling out our initial consultation form (either family law, criminal, or estate planning) prior to your initial consultation. This allows us to spend more time discussing your case and less time on paperwork.
Note: Initial consultations which involve divorce, custody, child and/or spousal support, equitable distribution, collections/landlord tenant, and school disciplinary hearings are charged a nominal fee. Second and subsequent appointments are billed at our hourly rate. Again, it’s important to fill out the initial consultation form prior to your arrival at your first appointment.
Free consultations are available for all other cases.
For criminal cases – Bring all charging documents, criminal records, driving records and complete the initial consultation form.
For family law – Bring all court orders, information concerning assets, debts, information about child(ren), bank/credit account information, retirement information and any agreements that may have been previously negotiated or fully endorsed.
Hourly – (for family law) A deposit is required to retain this firm. The deposit amount is determined at your initial consultation and is based upon the complexity of your case, hours required for preparation and issues raised for trial. Your deposit will be placed in an escrow account and you will be billed at our hourly rate as the fees are earned.
Flat Fee – (criminal matters, property settlement agreements and uncontested divorces) A flat fee is quoted at your initial consultation determined based on the severity of the charges in criminal cases and/or determined by the hours required for the preparation and completion of your case.
Contingent – (personal injury): Our contingent fee is 33 1/3% of all monies collected on your behalf after having paid expenses.
