How much does it cost to hire a lawyer?

Each case is different; however we invite you to talk with us about alternatives to traditional hourly billing rates. We have traditionally charged for most legal work on an hourly basis and continue to do so in most instances. However, alternative billing methods can provide you with greater predictability as to the total fee you will have to pay and help you budget for the year. Some alternative billing methods also provide for a sharing of the risk between you and Lommen Abdo. We are happy to work with you to find a mutually beneficial alternative billing method when possible. There are a number of options we can consider.
