Personal Injury:  Percentage of the recovery if and when funds are recovered from the responsible party/their insurance. Percentage varies depending on the circumstances.


Criminal and Traffic Cases Court Level: Most criminal cases can be settled before trial. In these cases, generally a flat fee will apply, which varies depending on the type and complexity of the case. The flat fee covers most legal services up to the time of appearance in court. Court representation fees are to be paid in full before court appearance. Additional fees may apply in cases of noncompliance or excessive continuances.


Criminal and Traffic Cases Trial Level: If a case goes to trial, additional attorney's fees are charged above the Court Level flat fees depending on the number of appearances on the trial calendar and on the length of the trial. Fees are competitive with other experienced, reputable attorneys in the area.

Personal/Family Matters: Most personal or family legal matters are handled with a simple flat fee and do not require court appearances, or minimal court appearances, all of which are included in the fee. Cases that require multiple appearances, or require representation over an extended period of time may incur additional fees.

Fees do not include expenditures related to evidence gathering, investigation, records research or expenses incurred due to case specific necessities.
