CzepigaDalyPope will discuss fees with you at the start of every engagement.
Initial Consultation : At our first meeting, which will be at least one hour long, we will extensively review your circumstances. You will walk away with an understanding of your particular legal issues along with a recommended plan of action. We will also give you an estimate of our fees to do your legal work.
For all legal work at CzepigaDalyPope, it is important that there will be no surprises! If you don't understand, ask again. If you need clarification, say so. It is very important that you feel the work we provide is worth the fees you pay. Remember, we are working for you and you have every right to fully understand what is discussed and recommended.
Flexible Fee Arrangements: Most of the work we perform is done for a fixed fee that is discussed with you at the initial consultation and mutually agreed to. In some instances we charge by the hour with hourly rates being different for work performed by attorneys, paralegals and secretaries. Your arrangement will be discussed at the initial consultation.
Out-of-pocket expenses will be charged to you. Such expenses include town clerk recording and filing fees, title search fees, court hearing fees, and the like. We won't "nickel and dime" you and we won't charge for routine copying or postage or for long distance phone calls and other such costs.
Retainer: CzepigaDalyPope may ask for payment at the commencement of a matter, usually one-half, but sometimes the full amount depending upon the nature of your matter. Expenses will be additional.
