Our fees are calculated in one of two ways: "fixed rate" or "hourly".
A "fixed rate" fee is determined in advance of beginning work and does not change based upon the amount of time spent on your case.
"Hourly" fees are calculated based upon the amount of hours of work performed by one or more of our attorneys on your behalf.
