Fees and Payment Options

This law firm was founded to provide superior legal representation at a reasonable cost. We have deliberately scheduled our fees to make our services accessible to clients in financial distress, and we offer payment plans to our clients that give them faster relief and quicker case filing than they would get if they were required to pay their entire fees up front.

If you have any questions about costs, please contact our office.
