About this pro

The cost of divorce is one thing that worries prospective clients the most. How much will my divorce cost? How long will my divorce take? Why do attorneys charge per hour? Do you charge for all time spent on my case? Those are the most common question asked by prospective clients. My fees are straightforward and transparent. Attorneys bill per hour because it is often very difficult to estimate the amount of work that will go into any particular case because the facts of every case are different. Attorneys like myself sell "time" for a living in the form of legal advise, drafting pleadings, court appearances and negotiations. I charge $225.00 per hour for all office and court time. All time is charged in 1/10 of an hour increments. I also require a retainer for any new case. I would be happy to discuss your case, my litigation strategy, costs, and the retainer in a free phone consultation. There are not many fields of law where you can actually make a difference like you can in family law. That gives me great satisfaction.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Most of my cases are hourly cases, where I charge my clients on a hourly basis. Billing itself is calculated in "tenths" of an hour. To illustrate, I will 0.1 for 1-6 minutes of work, 0.2 for 6-12 minutes, 0.3 for 12-18 minutes, 0.4 for 18-24 minutes, and 0.5 for 24-30 minutes of work done. I am able to answer any questions during an initial consultation.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      The first and most important step is the initial consultation, which is always free to reduce pressure. During the initial consultation, I answer any question the client may have regarding the process, regarding myself professionally. We also discuss the potential client's goals and lay out a litigation strategy to accomplish those goal. Once I am retained, I immediately take action to accomplish those goals. The goal are periodically review and revised based upon the client's wishes and evolution of the case.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I graduated from the John Marshall Law School in 2002 and have worked in the field of Family and Divorce Law for over 10 years. In addition to my law school education, each year I attend continuing legal education courses in the field of family law to stay on top of the latest trends and changes in the law. I have also presented a continuing legal education seminar in the field of family law.
