Fees, Costs and Limited Assistance Representation

In almost all cases, we charge by the hour and our rates are reasonable. Clients are expected to cover out of pocket costs, but we will ask for your approval before incurring any cost in excess of $100.

For those seeking assistance with only one issue or for only one court appearance, we offer Limited Assistance Representation (LAR). This allows us to appear for you in court just once, or act as your out of courtroom coach. We can also prepare the documents you may need and provide you with instructions as to where to go when you get to court, how to get your file, where to file your documents and what to say to the judge, all without appearing along with you which can save you hundreds of dollars in legal fees. The advantage is that you will only incur attorney’s fees for those issues you cannot manage on your own.

In every case, we offer a free, one-half hour consultation, so we may get to know each other, learn a little about your case and advise you as to what you might expect in terms of cost.
