Attorney Fees and Options

Affordable and flexable payment options available

At Soloman Law, we offer very flexible payment plans, flat fee quotes, and other payment options to you that few other local attorneys can match. We know firsthand that coming up with a retainer or deposit to pay for an attorney can be very difficult and challenging based on the life circumstances that bring you to us. So, let's talk about fees and payment options openly and find a way to work together for Soloman Law to represent you and your family in your case.

Billable hourly rate

Our billable hourly rate is $400. This means that for every increment of time that we spend working for you on your case, we will bill you for that amount of time against the $400 amount. For example, if we write a letter and/or talk on the phone with you or opposing counsel, and this time amounts to .25 or a quarter hour, then we would note this time charge as .25 x 400 = $100.00 for the 15 minute amount of work. This naturally carries over to a .5 hour charge would amount to $200.00 and a 2.0 hours charge would equate to $800.00. If you have any questions about how the billable hourly charge works, please feel free to ask us about this calculation procedure and process. For most, if not all civil type cases, i.e. Family Law, Divorces, Civil Trials, Contract Negotiations, etc, these types of cases are typically charged as billable hourly rate cases.

Contingency Fee for Personal Injury Cases

For Personal Injury cases/claims, we charge a contingency fee of 33% of the gross settlement amount realized or recovered on behalf of the client from the insurance company. This fee percentage applies to our clients whose case and claim settles without having to file a lawsuit. If a lawsuit has to be filed, the contingency fee goes up to 40% due to the demands of the lawsuit now being fought for our client's justice. Injury claims are challenging enough for you and your family and it’s our job to make things easier during this process. We generally do not negotiate our contingency fee percentages at the front end of the case, but we have been known to adjust our fees to make sure that our Client always recovers the maximum payout in the end. We try very hard to exceed our client's expecations in all aspects of our representation. Again, every case is different, but we try very hard to make sure that every personal injury client walks away from our representation with the best and fairest settlement for their case and claim. We offer free consultations on all personal injury cases.

Flat fee rates

We can and do offer a flat fee charge for some mediations and uncontested divorce matters, but this is only offered based on the specific needs of the client and by individual circumstances as determined by the lawyer and the client.

We also offer a one-time flat fee consultation charge of $400 for a face to face sit down meeting to discuss with you your civil case and situation for about one hour or longer depending on the circumstances of the matter.

Also know that I will talk with you initially over the phone for "FREE" to listen and gauge whether I can help you with your particular case and situation. So, give me a call at 206-355-4555 and let's talk.
