Fixed Legal Fees
Affordable Access To Quality Legal Services
As a former high school teacher, I believe every child should have access to a quality education no matter what zip code they live in. Likewise, as an attorney I believe everyone should have access to quality affordable legal services no matter what their income level.
Since legal fees can be high-priced and costly for the working middle-class, I’ve created sliding scale rates for the services my firm offers.
Sliding Scale Fees
My fees are determined by taking your gross household income as well as family size, and comparing those numbers to federal poverty guidelines.
Rates are then determined by how much you are above these poverty guidelines. The guidelines are set by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and can be found here.
Fees are then discounted based upon rates in the sliding scale, as set forth below.
Below are some examples of flat fees for some of the most common services the firm provides. These may be subject to change based upon individual circumstances.

Sliding Scale Fee: $1150 to $2950
Estate Plan for Married Couple without Minor Children:

Almost all of the services my firm provides are based upon a flat fee. Likewise, the same sliding scale fees apply to those services. Please contact me for more information.
My regular hourly rate is $325/hour. Although 95% of the services my firm provides are based on a flat or fixed fee. Once in a while however, it is more cost-effective for the work to be done based on an hourly rate. In these circumstances, my sliding scale rates range from $125/hour to $275/hour. Additionally, initial consultations are $150 and include up to an hour and fifteen minutes of consultation and legal research.
Credit Cards/Payment Plans
As a convenience my firm accepts credit cards, and payment plans are available.
