Fees
  • Free Consultation
    Free consultations are generally limited to brief telephone discussions that help everyone understand the situation and what type and amount of work is actually needed. For example, a client may think they need a patent when what they really need is a trademark. Substantive discussions of legal issues and legal advice is not provided for free. One hour paid consultations held in-person or remotely via teleconference (e.g., Zoom) are a typical next step if the type of legal help needed is clear.
  • Credit Cards Accepted
  • Contingent Fees
    Contingent fee agreements may be available in certain types of situations. Typically the client is expected to cover out-of-pocket case expenses. The contingent fee is typically applied to the net recovery (after case expenses are deducted).
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    Payment may be made by credit card, PayPal, Zelle, Venmo, ACH, or wire transfer.
