Packages and Fees

Convenient & Affordable Packages & Fees

Greenbaum Law Firm, P.A. strongly believes in fee transparency.   

It is extremely important that you know what something is going to cost you. The earlier you know, the better.

Traditionally, lawyers use hourly billing, a method by which they are paid solely for the time spent working on a matter.  Time is very important, but why should that be the thing you pay for.

We believe that value is a far more important product than time.  The value you receive is more important to a client than the time the lawyer spent working on that client’s matter.

Although we do offer traditional hourly billing for our services, we also provide a variety of fixed and subscription fee packages that are designed so our clients know exactly what their total cost will be before we begin working on their matter.

Nobody likes unpredictability, especially when it comes to spending one’s hard-earned money.  

When you go to a mechanic to get your brakes fixed, they don’t tell you “We charge $100 per hour.  We don’t know exactly how long it will take and how much it will cost, but we’ll bill you for our time when we’re done.”

Who would ever agree to that?  Nobody.

Would you do that at the dentist?  Never

But, when it comes to lawyers and legal fees, that’s exactly what we do.  

I don’t know why, but that’s the just the way it is.

Of course, if you want to pay an hourly fee, I can accommodate you, however, I also offer both fixed fee and subscription fee-based billing, so you know exactly what you’ll pay for a certain service.

If you have any questions about our fees, including hourly, fixed or subscription fee models, or if you don’t see a flat-fee or subscription fee service that you require, please contact us to discuss right away.

Below is a list of the flat-fee and subscription fee services offered by our firm. Certain services have a price range. This is because, until we become more familiar with the details of your business and your particular needs, we are unable to quote a specific price.

Once we have a better understanding of your needs, our documents are customized and tailored specifically for your business.

Please also note that certain matters may be of such sophistication that we are unable to provide services on a flat-fee or subscription fee basis. In such situations, we are happy to offer such services on an hourly basis.  Also note that the price ranges do not include filing, registration, government and/or court fees and other disbursements.

The list below is not an exhaustive list of all of the services we provide.  If you do not see a specific service that you require, please let us know. We would be happy to customize a flat-fee or subscription plan to meet your specific needs.

FLAT-FEE PLANS

Strategy/Assessment Session

For a flat-fee rate, we offer a 1-hour conference (in-person, Skype or over-the-phone – your choice) to analyze any legal issues impacting your business – from your business plan, to a specific contract, a strategic business matter, or anything else.  This is also an opportunity for you to evaluate the costs and benefits of potential future work with our firm. We recommend that you select this session before hiring us for additional services. Sometimes, following this session, those additional services that you might have considered, may no longer be necessary.

HOURLY RATES

Most firms practice under the billable hour model, and so do we – when it makes sense. Under certain circumstances, it is simply not possible to predict how much of our time a matter will require. In those cases, we will give you our best estimate of the range of costs that may be involved, then bill you on an hourly basis. And if you ever need to know the fees you’ve incurred on a matter mid-month, just ask us. We strive to keep the billing process transparent and up-to-date.
