Statements/Billing Narratives for Flat-Fee Matters. For all task-based or flat-fee projects, You will receive an automatically-generated receipt emailed to You at the time of your deposit, in connection with your deposit, which shall be the statement for our Services. In the event you engage the firm for a flat-fee matter and make a deposit for the services to be provided, the receipt you receive at the time the deposit will be made will be the receipt for the flat-fee services to be provided. No additional detailed time narrative will be issued.
Statements/Billing Narratives for Hourly Services. For hourly services, you will receive a receipt/statement for your deposit at the time your deposit is made and we will notify you in writing (email) once your deposit has been expended and needs to be replenished, if you wish to continue receiving legal services. We provide prepared statements of the time/effort expended in connection with your matter upon request only. Please note that for all prepared statements, the Firm does not provide itemized (i.e., task-based) time narratives, and does not categorize the legal services provided by task or type of task (no task-based billing, no activity codes, task codes, etc.). The Firm’s prepared statements for hourly services will be block-billed (i.e., without specific description of tasks provided on each occasion work is performed) unless additional detail is provided at the sole discretion and election of the Firm and/or the timekeeper(s) providing services on Your file.
Billing – Multiple Matters. The firm does not transfer or re-itemize individual time narrative entries between multiple matters for the same client and issuing revised time narrative statements (detailed statements). If you are a client with multiple matters and time needs to be adjusted between various matters, (i.e., moved from one matter to another matter), you will receive revised summary statements of the correct matter totals only, and no revised detailed statements.
