We make paying your lawyer simple & easy – Another reason to choose us is our client-friendly billing model. Most family law attorneys charge by the hour, with no maximum cost! This old model rewards inefficiency and makes your legal expenses unpredictable. We charge by the task, so you know what you’re paying for. This gives you predictability and control over your legal expenses. See our explanation here for all the details on how we make paying your lawyer easy.
