Firm Policies

Firm Policies

Fourteen years in the military taught me to be on time, be thorough, and to pay attention to detail because others are relying on me. You can count on me to exercise these same qualities as I work on your legal matter.

Consultations: 1 hour consultations available for a reasonable fee.

Why do I charge a fee for a consultation? There are a couple reasons. When I conduct an initial consultation you will be receiving legal advice. I believe my legal knowledge and advice are worth charging for. And, once we have had an initial consultation, even if you do not hire me, I am precluded from representing someone with interests adverse to yours. I believe that loss of potential business is worth charging for.

Attorney Rates: Legal services are charged on an hourly basis or for a fixed fee, depending on the nature of the legal matter. I require a retainer fee for all hourly work. Fixed fee work is generally due ½ up front before I begin work on your matter and ½ upon completion.

Mediation Rates:  My rate for mediation services is $150/hour, with a two hour minimum.

Credit Cards: I accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards for payments.

Office Hours: Monday — Thursday 8:00 to 5:00.

Communication: I am committed to keeping my clients informed of the status of their legal matter. You can count on me to relay all relevant information to you in a timely manner.
