Clients will be offered the option to pay a monthly fee based on hours worked. You can trust that we will bill with integrity, diligently work for your money, and fight for your cause. Generally speaking, my hourly rate is $250 an hour. If you are not a current client and need immediate services within 48 hours or over the weekend the rate is $500 an hour, but the rate would drop after the urgent issue is handled. Hourly cases generally require a $1,000 minimum fee.
Not everyone can afford to pay lawyer fees. At times, we offer contingency fee arrangements that allow you to keep your finances intact while we fight back. Clients are still required to pay for the costs of litigation (explained below). Rates vary by case.
Not every case requires extensive involvement. For cases that can be handled in a short time frame, we offer flat fees or fixed fees that set a price for all services required for the case. All fees are subject to change.
$1,000 Unemployment Hearings (could be considered under contingency for a higher rate)
I was an unemployment judge and have handled unemployment matters with multiple appeals. I have an extensive background in this field.
$300 Severance Agreement review. (unless ongoing negotiations are required).
$500 Case investigation (roughly two hours of legal time after a free consultation)
Appealing a decision from the Office of Administrative Hearings is an hourly fee case, which usually requires more than $1,500, but not usually over $3000. (estimate of required services). Hourly cases generally require a $1,000 minimum fee. An appeal to the Superior Court is usually $5,000 and up.
For hourly cases funds must be made available in advance and set aside in a special trust account. Trust accounts are billed monthly based on the number of hours dedicated to the case.
Attorney's fees are the hours we put into your case. Attorney's fees are different that costs and expenses of your case. The most common costs are: filing fees, service fees, depositions, transcripts, expert witnesses, mailing or shipping fees, and copy fees. These are cost that are paid to third parties and not to the attorney. Attorneys can use trust funds to pay these bills.
