Fees

Family Law - We offer a 30 minute consultation for prospective clients at a flat fee of $50.  Some simple, uncontested matters are handled on a flat fee basis.  For example, a simple, agreed divorce is about $1,000, including the District Clerk's filing fee.  Fees for most other cases are incurred at $300 per hour for attorney time and $75 per hour for legal assistant time.  A retainer is required to begin representation, which varies according to the type of case and specific facts.  Most retainers are in the $1,500 to $3,500 range.

We are aware of the high cost of competent, specialized legal services in family law cases and do all we reasonably can to keep the cost under control.  Therefore, each case in our office has its own individual discovery plan and case strategy appropriate to that particular case.  We strive to avoid unnecessary "cookie-cutter" work that seems more suited to increasing attorney fees rather than serve a legitimate goal.  That being said, please keep in mind that your attorney fees are also significantly controlled by the actions of the opposing party and his or her attorney.
