We offer an approach that is different from other law firms and we want to make sure that you are comfortable with our more facilitative, collaborative and less combative style and values.  

Therefore, all prospective clients receive an initial consultation at no charge.

Once retained, work is performed and billed on an hourly basis and each client will enter into a formal agreement for legal representation detailing the terms of the representation and responsibility for fees and costs.  In mediation matters, all parties will enter into a mediation agreement and share the mediation fees. In special circumstances, sliding scale fees may be available based on financial need.        

We also offer a flat fee option for uncontested divorce cases. Client is responsible for court filing fees and service fees.
