The Law Offices of Joel B. Albert, P.C. collects fees in a variety of methods dependent on the type, timing, and complexity of our client engagements.
Most of our matters are handled on an hourly basis. Our rates are very competitive and, prior to engagement and starting work, we always discuss budgets, estimated fees and costs and the feasibility of the project or a settlement in the event of a dispute or lawsuit.
Typically, all invoices are generated monthly. Clients may request weekly or bi-weekly invoices. All invoices detail the scope of work, applicable hours and all incidental, court or filing fees.
We offer flat rates for certain well-defined services or projects. Clients appreciate knowing the total cost of legal fees, we attorneys are freed from tracking our time and disputes as to fees are minimized.
Many business owners prefer to pay us a set annual or monthly fee in exchange for our services. We act as General Counsel for the companies, and there are no separate charges for telephone calls, emails, or other routine tasks.
We sometimes agree to accept a fixed percentage of any recovery of money as our fee in cases involving personal injury, property damage, employment or debt collection.
If money is recovered, our fee comes out of that money. If no money is recovered or if the case is lost, you will not be required to pay us for the work done on the case.
