Fees and Payments
The Housh Law Offices, PLLC, is committed to providing excellence at highly competitive prices. We keep our overhead low by staying small, embracing technology, and rejecting dated workflow methods. The firm maintains state-of-the art case management and document storage systems which streamline our work and augment our ability to focus on the client. Efficiency and excellence are the hallmarks of our management philosophy.
There should be no surprises when it comes to legal fees. Expect an upfront, honest discussion and a signed retainer agreement. Further, the firm’s billing practices are fair and transparent. For example, we don’t upcharge for copies and postage and we bill monthly with clearly itemized statements.
We believe that traditional client billing in increments of an hour against a large client-paid trust account is an antiquated, client-unfriendly relic of the 20th century. Not only does the hourly-rate agreement tie up a substantial portion of a client’s resources during a time of crisis, the client never knows if and when they will be done paying legal fees.
Our clients usually sign flat-fee and contingency-fee agreements, giving them control and predictability over the costs of their case. For the convenience of our clients, we accept all major credit cards and First Niagara Bank makes wire transfers to the firm quick and safe.
A Note About Initial Consultation Fees
