Fees

My fees for legal services are $300 per hour, but there is some variation dependent on services & location.

Initial consultation: I regularly provide an initial consultation, over the phone, of up to 15 minutes for free. The actual call will take longer since I have to gather information from you and provide some required disclosures.

What is covered?

  1. All activity on your matter
    1. Phone calls, email, and letters
    2. Record reviews – generally we can discuss a flat fee once I see the state of your records [[make link to record-keeping page]] or the use of a junior person to organize your records at a greatly reduced fee
    3. Meetings
    4. Hearings
    5. Travel time, except that I do not charge for local travel time (under ½ hour actual one-way from my office) or for time commuting into Manhattan from NJ for a meeting in Manhattan.
  2. Expenses are additional, charged at my actual cost
    1. No charges for domestic phone calls, faxes, or US mail.
    2. No charges for local travel, as described above

Retainer: a retainer in the amount of 4-10 hours of work is required, which we can discuss during the initial consultation.
