While most family law websites will leave you in the dark about pricing, we won't.

Initial Consultation: Free

The initial consultation is the opportunity for attorney and client to interview one another.  The most important thing  is to work with someone who is the right fit for you.


During the consultation, you have the chance to tell your unique story, ask questions, and explain your goals.  We'll answer your questions and begin to assess your case. 

Most clients leave a consultation feeling empowered with knowledge. A good consultation can help ease the anxiety of the unknown. 

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements: Flat Rate

We handle prenuptial and posnuptial agreements on a flat rate basis. We offer full drafting services, including financial disclosures, and offer independent counsel review for agreements already drafted.

For drafting services, our flat rate starts at $4,500.

For independent counsel review for agreements already drafted, our flat rate starts at $2,500.

Initial Retainer for Representation in Divorce and All Other Family Law Matters: $5,500 - $12,000

The initial retainer is the fee required in order to begin work on your case. Work is billed an hourly basis and then charged against this deposit. The exact retainer deposit required depends on the complexity of the case, among other factors.

Initial Retainer for Consultation Services: $3,500 - $5,500

For clients who only need document review, drafting, and the opportunity to ask questions and consult, we offer consultation services at retainers starting at $3,500.

Hourly Rates

The attorney hourly rate is $375 per hour.  The hourly paralegal rate is $150 per hour.

How much will my case cost?

Every family law case is different. Overall pricing depends on the complexity of the case, length of the case, and the amount of litigation and/or negotiation required to resolve the case.  That said, we analyze each case with cost-benefit in mind.  The idea is proceed efficiently to resolve your legal issue.
