At Morris Legal and Tax LLC, our clients receive great value because we provide exceptional service for reasonable costs. Although lawyers traditionally charge by the hour for their services, we have found that most clients do not see the value in a lawyer’s time, but instead see the value in the service that is provided, whether it is the preparation of a tax return, the preparation of estate planning documents, or simply good legal advice. We found that when clients are paying by the hour they do not ask as many questions or provide as much information to their attorney because the client knows that the more time the attorney spends on their case, the more money the client must pay. As one could imagine, the legal service is sub-par as a result of the lawyer not having all of the information needed, or the client not fully understanding their situation and their options. For those reasons, we generally charge a flat fee for our services.
Flat Rate: As discussed above, whenever possible, we will quote a flat, guaranteed fee. Every case is unique and requires a custom solution, therefore the pricing is unique to each client, as well. After meeting with you to determine the scope of your case, we are able to guarantee a flat fee for most services.
The amount of time and expertise that is required for each situation differs based on the client’s circumstances, the complexity of the case, and the amount of time that will be expended on the case. Therefore, we will not give a firm price quote until we have had an initial consultation with the client to determine the scope of the work.
Hourly: We may charge by the hour at the client’s request, or for services in which we cannot possibly predict the amount of time that will be spent on a case, such as in litigation for probate, guardianship, or conservatorship proceedings.
Alternative Fee Structures: We are open to discussing any alternative fee arrangements that are fair and suitable for your case.
