How much will you charge to represent me?
Every case is different. I do a consultation with each client who hires me so that I can understand what kind of case it is and what the scope of representation will be. For all but a few types of cases, I bill hourly for my time and make an agreement with the client that he or she will deposit a certain amount of money in my trust account at the beginning of the case. I keep track of all the time I spend working on the case and bill periodically, paying the invoices from the trust account. The client and I agree that certain minimum balances will be kept in the trust account so that bills can always be paid from funds in trust. Any funds left over at the end of the case will be refunded when all work on the case has been completed.
