- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I offer 3 payment options: (1) Flat fees - You tell me exactly what you need and I quote you a price. You pay 50% up front and 50% when I send the final product. (2) Hourly rate - When it's hard to know how much work will be required or the work will take less than 2 hours then my pricing is usually billed at $40 per 6 minutes of my time. You must pre-purchase at least 1 hour of time with this option. Unused time will be refunded. (3) Monthly Subscription Fee starting at $500/mo for two 45 minute calls every month. If you need additional assistance with legal projects, I recommend starting with my $999/mo plan. This plan includes up to 3 hours of my time each month, which you can allocate to a custom project roadmap I create for you during your first month.
