Please note, we pass on charges from third parties we are required to pay to complete your matter.

Other Services

 

We will negotiate a fee arrangement at the beginning of the matter.

 

In cases where the services to be provided can be clearly defined at the beginnning of the matter, we will charge a flat fee. If the matter becomes more complicated than initially anticipated, we may charge additional fees to cover the unanticipated work.

 

In other cases, we will base our fee on the lawyer and paralegal time required to complete the matter. The rate charged will depend on the person completing the work.

  • $100 per document for notarizations other than notarizations in the course of a matter we are handling
