• Generally we charge by the hour. It has been our experience that this is the fairest way to proceed since it is often difficult to know in advance the scope of the work that might be needed to accomplish your goals. Our current rates, which may change but will be clearly explained at the first meeting, are as follows:
    • Senior Attorney Rate – $320.00 ($350.00 for Long-Term Care Planning and Medicaid Application and Appeals)
    • Associate Rate – $225.00
    • Administrative Rate – $75.00
  • Estate Administration matters will be billed hourly with a minimum total legal fee of $2,500.00, not including costs and filing fees.
  • If you prefer a fixed-fee rate we will work with you to find agreement on a fixed fee once we clearly understand the parameters of the work you are looking to have us accomplish.
  • NOTE: We are often called upon to refer clients out to associated professionals (Accountants, Financial Advisors Geriatric Care Managers, Appraisers, Tax Experts, etc.), whom we have experience with and trust. We do not accept referral fees from these professionals nor do we pay referral fees for business referred to us. The only exception to this rule is in the case of a personal injury matter where we refer a case out to a Personal Injury Attorney. In that case a referral fee is paid to us as part of the contingent fee paid to the Attorney when the case is successfully concluded.
