I get a tremendous amount of satisfaction representing people who have been injured through no fault of their own. People who become injured this way can be vulnerable to insurance companies seeking to avoid responsibility for the full extent of the loss experienced by being hurt. I help my clients and their families seek fair compensation for medical expenses, missed work and painful recoveries.
My family law practice differs from many of my colleagues’ in how I charges fees for my services. Most attorneys use a billable hour format, in which they charge clients for the time spent working on a case in one-tenth or one quarter hour increments. Fees for legal services charged on an hourly basis are largely unpredictable for clients, and can sometimes become excessive (especially in the area of family law and divorce). I believe that unpredictable and excessive attorney fees are big factors in contributing to the overall negative perception of attorneys that many people have.
I approach billing clients based on the time that I spend. I will bill for what is done based off of a schedule of fees listing set prices for specific tasks . This approach allows for the client to know their costs in advance. It is my goal to reduce the stress and anxiety that accompanies being involved in a divorce or other family law dispute.
