Hobbs Giroday offers a wide range of fee arrangements suited to each individual client’s needs.
Our hourly rates are competitive within our local legal community for the level of experience provided. Our hourly rates presently range from $550. per hour for a senior partner to $275. per hour for an associate counsel. Our paralegals are charged out at $125. per hour for paralegal and $95. for legal assistant services. Rates are subject to change.
Taxes and disbursements are charged separately from fees.
Hobbs Giroday invoices on a monthly basis and will request monetary retainers from new clients with no credit history.
For appropriate cases we will consider contingency fee arrangements. The percentage is proposed after we have carefully considered the case to assess the risk. The percentages range from 15% to 40%. We often charge for out of pocket expenses irrespective of the contingency fee arrangement though, in special cases, we will consider financing out of pocket expenses. We are willing to consider payment terms the client can manage.
We are prepared to provide estimates and develop litigation budgets with our clients where possible to do so. We will consider creative fee arrangements within professional boundaries. Our fee agreements and other terms of our retainer are normally set out in a written retainer agreement which is signed by our client early on in the engagement.
We will provide one free consultation to see if Hobbs Giroday is the right firm for you.
