It is important that a client be informed up front of our hourly billing rates and be given an estimate of the approximate number of hours it will take to complete an engagement. We will, in appropriate cases, "cap" an engagement so that legal fees will be lesser of the attorney's hourly rate multiplied by the number of hours spent, or the agreed upon "cap". Our hourly rates are often substantially less than many Manhattan based firms with a commensurate level of experience--due, in part, to our lower overhead costs.

We are located in Great Neck, New York, in Nassau County, the first community over the New York City line, on Long Island (population approximately 2.7 million) and only 30 minutes from mid-town Manhattan.
