Contact us for rates

The initial consultation is always free. When we begin our representation we always discuss in detail the fee we will charge and the method of billing. Depending on the case, we offer an hourly rate or a flat rate. In estate planning the rate is usually a flat fee. This allows you, the client, the freedom to ask questions and explore options without fear of being charged by the hour. We pride ourselves on the fairness of our fees for the services we provide.
