What Will it Cost?
The initial consultation is a time to get a feel for one another, understand the issues, and get an estimate of fees and expenses.
When possible, billing is done on a flat fee basis. This fee is based on an estimate of how much time the project will entail. Some practice areas better lend themselves to flat fee billing, such as estate planning. Probate alternatives such as Affidavits of Heirship also lend themselves well to flat fee billing. While other practice areas such as estate administrations do not lend themselves as well to flat fee billing, an estimate of the time involved, along with an hourly rate will be provided so you can project what to expect regarding a financial commitment.
