My fees are low compared to other law firms, and also transparent. The legal process can be frustrating enough in itself; you shouldn’t have to deal with excessive or unclear fees.
Legal work is usually not cheap because of the expertise and time required, but legal fees don’t have to be exorbitant. At Piccolo Law Offices, I provide high-quality legal representation for prices that are fair and also affordable for most people. I can do this because I keep overhead to a minimum.
I will clearly state to you what my fees will be, and they won’t change during the representation. I also won’t nickle-and-dime you for minor services like other law firms do. For example, I won’t charge you for a brief phone call or e-mail to update you on your case or answer a quick question. You should feel free to contact your attorney without the fear of being charged for every minor interaction.
For some services, I offer fixed, flat fees. For some cases involving litigation, I charge a contingency fee of 28-40%, which means you pay that fee only if we win (the percentage goes higher the longer it takes to resolve it). For other services, I charge $150-200 an hour (all subject to change). Of course, paying me less doesn’t mean you get less for your money. I provide the same quality legal services as other law firms, if not better, but I can do so at more affordable rates.
