Fee Structure

Fee Structure

Each client engagement differs but, based on my experience, I understand what is typically required to bring an issue to a successful conclusion.  Therefore, when we work together, my fees will not be a surprise to you.

Typically a flat fee is charged for services such as:

• Living Trusts
• Last Will and Testament
• Certificate if Trust Existence and Authority
• Powers of Attorney


An hourly rate is used for:

• Probate and Estates

Further, to help you manage your funds, I have instituted a “Block” structure whereby you, the client, approve working time in hourly increments.  An original “good faith” estimate is prepared in advance and for each additional hourly block of 3-5 hours, you will understand the additional work and why it is necessary.  Your approval is always secured prior to proceeding.
