Traditional Hourly Rates
Where flat fees don't make sense, the Firm works on the traditional retainer basis. For general business needs, the Firm requires a replenishing retainer of $2,000/$1,000. The Firm bills at the hourly rate of $275 per hour for all attorney time and $125 per hour for all paralegal/law clerk time. The Firm bills in tenths of an hour increments. The Firm may from time to time require a larger retainer or replenishment in anticipation of significant work that the Firm reasonably believes cannot be covered by the standard retainer amount.
