What about attorney's fees and costs?

We take cases on either a flat fee or hourly basis. The flat fee matters usually are drafting wills, trusts and powers of attorney, incorporations, initiating LLCs, partnerships and joint ventures. We attempt to charge a flat fee whenever possible. Other matters are taken on an hourly basis, with a retainer usually paid up front for new clients. Costs are usually paid by the client. We also now accept payment by VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Diners Club cards.
