Why Flat Fees?

We charge flat fees in part because people want predictability in gauging their costs.  A good result is often disappointing when faced with an unexpectedly large bill after the case is over. Our flat fees are carefully structured and will be explained in detail when you review and sign a fee agreement.  Fees will not exceed the amount in the agreement regardless of what happens in the case.
