BUSINESS LAW

For business law matters we ask for payment in advance of the work done. These are called “retainers” and the funds are held in trust until the work is completed and invoiced to the client. (At the end of the case, any unused portion of a retainer is returned to the client.

At a consultation, we give an estimate of the final cost (if we can) and we will ask you to sign an agreement that sets out the fee and disbursement arrangement, so there is no confusion.
