Law Flat Fee Billing
Hernandez Family Law has implemented unique, customer friendly pricing for our legal services. The basic feature of our pricing is that we work carefully with our clients to arrive at a customized price for specific services.
Prior to commencement of representation, our clients know the full fee in advance – no surprises.
We discuss and agree on the fee during the consultation. This eliminates the extra stress that can result from not knowing how much the case will cost.
You will probably interview multiple law firms about your case, and you should. When you encounter an hourly biller, ask him or her why they cannot tell you how much the case will cost. I doubt they will have an answer that makes sense to you. Some hourly billers disparage flat fee firms, mostly because they are terrified that we have pulled the rug out from the old way of billing, which has been very profitable for them. They may try to convince you that somehow, they are worth the tens of thousands more you will pour into their firm, and that flat rate billers can’t possibly be as good or as efficient. You will have to decide that for yourself.
You should also know that we do not compromise on quality. Family Law cases must be done correctly. And to minimize the risks associated with family law cases, once your case has begun, we move expeditiously towards a settlement or trial. Unfortunately, quality and speed cost more than slow, mediocre service. We are by no means the least expensive law firm you can hire. If the absolute lowest fee is all you care about, just realize that if you hire the attorney who quotes the lowest fee, you run the risk of getting less expertise and professionalism than you and your family needs.
