Our Billing Philosophy and Fees

 We have a wide variety of billing arrangements that are flexible for businesses of all sizes and types. On many  occasions, we provide legal services to business clients on a flat fee, or budgeted basis, by which the overall legal expenses are capped for purposes of the task or project being performed. It is generally a very straightforward  process, and many clients are pleased to learn how affordable it can be to obtain reliable legal advice for their business matter.FeesButton

We also use traditional legal billing structures, such as hourly services, as well as hybrid billing arrangements for clients whose billing needs are more specific. Our billing practices reflect the philosophy of providing value-added services for clients, in a cost-effective, affordable, and reliable manner. Most businesses generally cannot afford the high legal fees of large law firms, which can feel overwhelming, especially when there are multiple timekeepers assigned to a file all doing what appears to be the same or similar tasks. Our billing philosophy specifically is designed to avoid the types of billing practices that frustrate business clients the most.
