How Family Law Lawyers Bill
Family law matters are generally billed on an hourly basis, in accordance with the lawyer’s level of experience. For time-based services, Kahane Law Office requires an up-front retainer which will be discussed with the lawyer based on the issues to be addressed. We may be able to offer flat rates on certain services, to be determined in discussions with the lawyer. Click here to see our Flat rate fees.
