Title Slide: How Much Does It Cost To Hire An Attorney?
Bankrupcty Attorney Ashley Renz
That will definitely vary from case to case. Obviously there are different ways that we do it. We do some on an hourly basis, we do some flat fee.
For bankruptcy we tend to do a flat fee which can range between $1900 and $3,000 depending on the type of bankruptcy you’re doing. So it will really very depending on what kind of case you have.
Family Law Attorney Brad Schweiger
It depends on what kind of case you have and how complicated it is. For family law, usually we like to put down a retainer; we like to work with clients, depending on their situation, to put down at least some initial funds for a retainer.
And that varies case by case, and if it’s going to be a more complicated case, the higher the retainer. If it’s going to be a less complicated case where you have limited financial means—we work with clients to try to meet their needs without having them go into financial ruin.
Criminal Defense Attorney Lane Fitzgerald
And that will vary, in essence, (I hate to use this adverb) but, wildly, from case to case. A simple traffic matter would be something small, limited, maybe a few hundred, as to something where you have a case that goes to trial with multiple felonies or a case of civil litigation that goes to trial which is going to be exponentially more expensive.
The more relationship we have with you, the more cases that we handle, the more feel that we get for you as a client, the less your bill is going to be because we’re going to in essence already know what you want and be able to work through those issues without having to do all that extra work that we would have to do with someone that doesn’t really communicate as well.
