This is a frequently asked question when potential clients call to schedule consultations. Retainer fees are always set during the consultation based upon the type of case you have, location, number of parties involved, etc. You will most likely be quoted a retainer fee prior to leaving the consultation. The retainer fee is not required until you decide to hire our office to represent you. The engagement letter also will list other associated costs of your case so that you may be fully prepared to begin.
