How much do I pay your firm to represent me in a civil case?

The facts and seriousness or complexity of your case will determine how much the attorney's fees will be. After talking with you in the initial consultation, at no charge, we will be able to tell you what the fee would be. Depending upon the facts of your case, we may work on a contingent fee basis, at an hourly rate, or for a flat fee.


What is a contingent fee?


A contingent fee is a fee based upon a percentage of the amount recovered in your case. It is contingent or conditioned upon you winning the case or obtaining a settlement. If there is no recovery, there are no attorney's fees. If there is a recovery of $100,000 and the contingent fee is at the rate of 33%, the fee is equal to 33% of $100,000 or $33,333.


How much do I pay your firm to represent me in a criminal case?

Just as with a civil case, the facts and seriousness or complexity of a criminal case will determine how much the attorney's fees will be.  After talking with you in the initial consultation, at no charge, we will be able to tell you what the fee would be. Depending upon the facts of your case, we may work at an hourly rate or for a flat fee.


When I pay the attorney fees, does that include expenses related to the case?


No. In addition to the attorney's fees, the client is responsible for expenses related to the litigation. For example, if your case requires the consultation or testimony of an expert witness, the fee for the expert is in addition to any fee paid to the attorney.


Do you accept credit card payments?


Yes. We can accept credit card payments from most major credit cards.
