Thank You For Your Business!
We appreciate the opportunity to serve you, and hope this page provides helpful information about our billing and payment practices and available fee arrangements.
Hourly Billing, Flat Fees, and Invoicing
For clients on an hourly billing agreement, we send out invoices each month for services provided in the prior month. These are sent out electronically, to the primary email we have on file. If you have provided a retainer, the invoice will reflect a credit in the amount drawn from the retainer and the outstanding balance (if any) after application of those funds.For clients on alternative fee arrangements, such as a flat fee agreement, we will send an invoice as soon as the fee agreement is signed. These are also sent electronically to the primary email address we have on file.
Contingent Fee Cases
There are some cases we are able to take on contingency fee arrangements. In most cases, this involves a flat fee at the outset to review and assess your case, with the remainder of the fees as a percentage of whatever you recover in settlement or judgment, known as contingency fee arrangements because our recovery of fees is contingent on your recovery. This means upon settlement or judgment, we would be entitled to an agreed percentage of that settlement or judgment, less any amounts you have already paid as a flat fee. If we take your case on this basis, and you do not recover anything, you would not owe us anything other than the original flat fee and any out of pocket expenses.
We understand that not everyone has the available funds to pay for legal services all at once, and believe that should not stop you from getting the legal representation you need. You can choose Paypal Credit to get interest free financing for six months (sigh button on the right), or, if that doesn't work for you, we are always willing to work with you on a payment plan that is proportionate to the fees involved and works for you. If we enter a payment plan agreement, we will make arrangements to automatically charge the agreed payments, and as long as you are making the agreed payments, your account will be in good standing regardless of the balance.
