I believe in fair fees and knowing upfront what a service will cost. Therefore, I rarely charge hourly rates -- I prefer fixed rates because both you and I know how much my fee will be. Initial consultations are always free of charge.
SAMPLE FEE LIST
Below is a sampling of rates for my most popular services. Please ask me if you don't see a legal service or fee on this list -- I'm happy to provide a quote for your specific legal matter. These fees are base fees only and subject to change without notice. If your legal matter is particularly complex and takes more time, the fee may be higher. I will always tell you upfront how much a service will cost.
Fees for estate plans and documents listed below are flat fees. They include all of the meetings and telephone calls needed to discuss the details of the estate plan, modifications to the estate plan in the draft stages, notarization, and witnessing.
Not every client’s situation fits these packages exactly. In those instances, I work with potential clients to develop a plan that properly meets their needs. Such a plan may include documents not discussed below. I will always quote a “flat fee” prior to starting the work. After the initial estate plan is completed and signed, amendments to the plan are subject to additional fees.
