Depending on the case, we offer a flat rate or an an hourly rate. If we aren't working at a flat rate, we keep detailed logs of the time we spend on your case. We count in six minute increments. We only work for as long as a case requires, so you'll never be over billed for unproductive time. Final bills will include costs for filing, messengers & postage, and third-party expenses and research tools. Attorney rates fall between $300 and $400 per hour, depending on the type of work involved. Our paralegals charge between $75 and $125 per hour. Retainers must be paid up front.
