1. How much do you charge for your services?

I offer flat fee arrangements for the vast majority of cases. That way, you know what to expect up front and whether or not the price fits into your budget. You also don't have to worry about "the meter running" every time you call with a question or meet to go over the case status. I also offer a free initial consultation, so you never have to worry that you're wasting your money just by coming to see what your options are.

2.  Why don't you post your fee rates online?

The cost of a case is going to depend on  a number of factors, including how difficult the case is and how much time it is expected to take. Part of my job as an attorney is to get the important facts from you, the client, and determine the amount of work that is going to be involved in handling the case. I prefer to talk about fees in person because then we can sit down and discuss the nature of the case, what the fee covers, and why it is appropriate. This arrangement also benefits my clients because then they have the opportunity to ask questions and understand what they are getting for their money. It also helps prevent false expectations - if you just look at a fee schedule without a clear understanding of what your case entails, you might mistakenly believe that the cost is going to be lower or higher than it really is.

3.  There are lots of attorneys out there. Why should I choose you?

This is an important question. There are a lot of attorneys out there. But not every attorney is going to be a good fit for you. I take a holistic approach to the practice of law, meaning that I treat people like individuals with complex needs that go beyond the legal system. You should choose me if you want an attorney that listens, and that cares about what happens to you, both in your case and in your life.
