Commonly Asked Questions about Attorney Fees

How can I help reduce lawyer fees?

You can help keep your attorneys' fees down by keeping track of your questions as you think of them and making just one phone call to your attorney or by scheduling regular appointments to work on your case and having a number of questions in mind to address at that meeting. Another way to keep costs down is by collecting and organizing the documents your attorney needs for your case. That way the time you spend with your attorney can be devoted to working with the documents and not on organizing them.

What is a retainer and how do your fees work?

A retainer is an amount of money that you pay to the Law Firm when you decide to hire one of our lawyers to represent you. That money is held in a Trust Account for you and as your lawyer works on your case, he or she will bill time against that amount in Trust.

Do you have a monthly payment plan?

Each lawyer has the discretion to permit a monthly payment plan based on each client's individual circumstance. However, the primary way in which our Tucson law firm handles billing is to collect the fees in an up-front retainer so our focus is on your case and not on your bill.

Can I use a credit card?

Yes. Our Law Firm accepts Visa and MasterCard.

How do I make an appointment? What is the charge for the first meeting?

You can make an appointment with one of our attorneys by calling our reception line at 520-790-7337 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. You may also leave a voice mail message on that line when the office is closed and someone will call you back during our business hours. The fee for the initial consultation varies depending on which attorney you are seeing and you should be told what that consultation fee is when you make your appointment.

Do you require some initial information prior to my first appointment?

All new clients fill out our New Client Intake Form. This form can be completed online and submitted via email, or you may print the form to return by fax, mail, or in person.

How can I contact you after we start?

Because we recognize the importance of good communication with each of our clients, we try to offer our clients as many choices as possible to meet their needs. In-office appointments are available to work on your case face-to-face. These appointments should be scheduled in advance either directly with the attorney or his or her legal assistant. Phone calls are also an excellent way to stay in touch. You may always call in to your attorney. If he or she is available, they will take your call immediately. If your attorney is not available to take your call, you can schedule a phone appointment through his or her legal assistant, or leave a message. Each attorney strives to return calls within one business day. E-mail is also an excellent means of communicating with your attorney or his or her legal assistant. All of our e-mail addresses are on this website as links.

If my friends or relatives give me advice, what should I say?

Thank them for their input and support. It is helpful to keep in mind that each person's situation is different. The outcome your friends and family may have gotten in a case is not a good way to predict what outcome to expect in your case.
