Fees

    About fees: Many law firms do not like to talk about fees. Scott believes that fees are an important part of the attorney-client relationship since people are trusting him and his advice. Fees should be fair, affordable and accurately quoted and reliable Elder Law Attorneys rarely give free consultations. The firm charges a $300 consultation fee for the initial meeting (one to two hours) and this fee is applied to any work the client does with the firm. Scott's fees are competitively priced and quoted at the meeting based on the work determined from that meeting. Most clients are quoted one set fee for all work needed with no hourly charges, unlimited meetings and phone calls and no "surprises."
