Today’s lawyer can thrive with little more than a laptop and an internet connection. That’s why we’ve invested in efficient technology rather than bloated status symbols like downtown office space. Now, we get to pass the savings on to you. But we’re not content to offer just lower prices. We think you should know how much you’ll pay before you get the bill—no surprises. That’s why we’re committed to predictable pricing.
The flat fee option is listed first for a reason: clients love it. It’s simple and predictable. You pay a fee, and then we do the work, no matter how long it takes to complete. That way, we carry the risk of inefficiency, not you.
For larger projects, using flat fees can be more complicated. But we’re often able to work around this by proposing separate flat fees for discrete tasks performed as part of the project. By breaking up a project in this way, it can be easier to accurately estimate the amount of legal work that may be required.
Note: While we like using flat fees, they aren’t always a good fit, especially when it’s difficult to predict the time needed to complete a project. For instance, we typically don’t offer flat fees for litigation matters because it can be hard to assess whether the case will settle in a week or go all the way to trial.
Most law firms bill by the hour. We try to avoid hourly billing because it’s less predictable for our clients. But for some projects that are large or otherwise uncertain in scope, and for certain matters like litigation, we may revert to hourly billing. Of course if you prefer hourly billing, we are happy to accommodate you. Our current rate is $250 per hour.
We love working with arts organizations, non-profits, and others committed to social and cultural enrichment, but we know that their funds are often limited. That’s why we offer sliding-scale pricing whenever we can. Don’t hesitate to set up a consultation to learn whether this option is available to you.
