Fixed Fee: By Agreement, the Fixed Fee is a negotiated fee for specific services.

Resource and Retainer Service:

The Resource and Retainer Service is particularly suited for either individuals or business entities that need either frequent or occasional legal advice to protect their assets from risk (preventive law) or from impending or threatened loss. The Resource and Retainer Service provides professional service without the cost of a full time or in-house counsel, and without the uncertainties inherent in an hourly fee arrangement.

The fee is a negotiated fee, provided for a specific period of time, which varies according to the scope of services required. The Resource and Retainer Service can be terminated as the parties may agree in advance.

The Resource and Retainer service eliminates the multitude of problems that result with many hourly fee arrangements and mitigates the surprise factor that clients frequently encounter when an hourly fee statement comes in at the end of the month.
