Rates, Retainers and Additional Information We have a flexible fee structure. For those who can afford it, we provide services on an hourly basis. For those who can not afford the full cost of legal services, we negotiate a reasonable retainer and cap the fees at an amount that is fair, reasonable, and affordable. We represent many parents who can not afford to pay at all. Please do not allow your financial circumstances to stop you from contacting us. If we can help your child, we will make every effort to do so. In many instances, fees are recoverable from the school district. This allows us to represent parents who would not otherwise be able to afford our services.
