**Hourly rates are not a good criterion for selecting an attorney. However, our hourly rates are more than competitive in the area, and especially when comparing to other Certified Family Law Specialists and their associates who practice family law exclusively. We are convinced that our experience, efficiency and dedication allow us to consistently charge our clients less for their case than the opposing attorney charges our clients’ exes for the same amount of work.
***Our initial retainers range from $3,000 to $6,000 or higher for out-of-area clients, or ones with very complicated cases, or ones with a Bad Credit report.
Please know that it sometimes costs our clients $20,000 or more for complicated cases having a lot of assets. It sometimes costs our clients $2,500 or less for an Uncontested Divorce.
