It’s all about you. We want to help you make the right legal decisions.

In cases that are not contingency cases, lawyers typically charge for their services by the hour. Youll should discuss the issues of cost with an attorney at the outset. While all litigation can be somewhat unpredictable, the attorney can give you an idea of what to expect based on his or her experience.
One bit of critical advice. If you, as a client, want to "win at all costs" or "show them" or "wear the other side down", litigation can become frightfully expensive and mentally taxing. Our advice is to select your objective carefully, in line with your budget, and review everything with an attorney. Then be sure you dont change direction and allow things to get out of control.
