How do you charge clients for your services?

Our fees vary by engagement, and are documented in an engagement letter to our clients prior to undertaking representation. Depending on the work to be performed, we may work on a contingency basis, hourly rate basis, hybrid or flat fee.

Why won’t you discuss my case with me (either in person or via phone)?

Each year we provide a lot of pro-bono hours in the form of free consultations. The following are several common reasons, and certainly not all the possible reasons, why we may NOT schedule time to talk with you either in person or by phone. In some cases, more than one reason will apply. (NOTE: Many of these reasons also apply to the question “Why won’t you represent me or my company?”):

1. You are not the potential client or decision maker. We need to talk with the potential client. This website is loaded with free information about our firm which you can provide to the decision maker or potential client (“PC”).

2. You are already represented by counsel. If your counsel would like to hire us as a consultant, or agrees with hiring us as a consultant, then we can discuss that arrangement.

3. Your case is outside of our practice areas, and we cannot refer you to someone in our trusted network.

4. We don’t understand your legal matter based on the information you submitted.

5. You did not include your contact information, or you included the incorrect contact information.

6. You have not paid the consultation retainer (if agreed).

7. You are approaching us with an urgent need to have work performed and do not want to sign an engagement letter.
