Our Fees

We pride ourselves on providing affordable legal services to Southern Indiana and Kentucky clients.  We understand your concern about fees, and we endeavor to always provide cost-effective legal services.

We know that you have a choice in determining which law firm to use, and we appreciate the confidence you place in us in entrusting us with your legal matter.  When you retain our firm, we will explain how our fees will be charged, which in most cases will be on an hourly basis.  There are some matters that we accept on a  flat-rate fee; typically these consist of criminal defense matters, bankruptcy work, and some corporate matters.  For social security disability, we enter into a contingency fee arrangement whereby we only receive fees if we recover a back award for our clients.

The above is only a general description of our fees; the terms of your matter may be different than the description above.  If you choose to retain us, we will provide you with a fee agreement that will describe our fees and costs.  Frequently we require a an advance fee retainer before commencing representation; if this is the case for your matter, the amount of the retainer and the procedures concerning the retainer will be set forth in the fee agreement.

You should never hesitate to ask us any questions that you might have about fees or costs.  We work for you, and we want you at all time to understand the work that we are engaged in concerning your matter.
