Flexible Fee Agreements

At the outset of representation, we work with you to negotiate a fair fee arrangement. Some of our clients prefer flat fees based on the complexity of the case and an initial assessment of potential scenarios as to the outcome of the litigation. Others prefer the traditional hourly fee arrangement or a hybrid fee combining a flat fee and an hourly rate based on various stages of the litigation.  Whatever your situation, we are open to working with you to provide the level of legal services you need.
