Pricing

 

We believe that legal fees should be straight-forward and reasonable, with no hidden costs. Accordingly, we keep our overhead costs low, maintain a (mostly) paperless office, and offer flat fees whenever practical so our clients know exactly what kind of bill to expect. When it’s not practical to offer flat fees, such as during litigation, we provide itemized cost estimates and always work within our clients’ budgets to achieve the best possible results. Regardless of the situation, our creative and effective legal solutions are custom-tailored to meet our clients' unique business needs.

Initial Consultation.

Pricing: FREE 20-minute phone consultation (or $250 for up to 1 hour in person)

We'll take time to learn about your personal, professional, and financial goals with your business; the level at which your business is currently operating; the level at which you'd like your business to be operating; what you perceive as areas of weakness; which intellectual property assets you'd like to protect; and what you'd like to gain from your relationship with legal counsel. We'll also assess whether we're a good fit, i.e., whether there are any potential conflicts.

Strategy Session.

Pricing: $250 for up to 1 hour with an attorney

As experienced litigators, we know the potential pitfalls and hazards that many businesses face when it comes to protecting their important business interests, including intellectual property. This allows us to quickly identify your biggest business risks, areas of your business that need bolstering, and obstacles that might prevent you from attaining your business goals. We'll also identify your intellectual property assets and help you secure and enforce your legal rights to those assets. We'll walk through every detail with you in plain English (not legalese), and craft a custom plan to protect your business.
