Fees

Flat-Fee Rates

Most of our legal fees are based on flat rates, especially if you are a returning client. Per California law, any attorney fee requiring more than $1000.00 in services, will need a signed written agreement before any work can commence.

Because every circumstance is different, we will need to discern your particular issues and goals to provide a specific quote for our services. The best way to achieve this is to call us at 619-810-4644 for a complimentary, initial phone consultation.

Hourly Rates and Retainer

Our hourly rates range from $295.00 – $350.00, depending on the particular legal issue involved.

For representation falling outside our flat fee rates, we require a retainer to be deposited into our client trust account before work is conducted. Once we begin the representation, our hourly rate, as well as any costs associated, will be deducted from this retainer. If funds remain after the representation, you will receive the balance; if the retainer is depleted before representations concludes, it will need to be replenished before we can continue with our services. Depending on the legal issue involved, our retainers begin at $2000.00.

For new clients, we will require a retainer, in addition to a signed retainer agreement, prior to engaging in any legal work.

For existing clients, we will begin working on your matter as soon as we receive the proper information from you; we will then bill you for our fees and any associated costs incurred.
