Embracing alternative and value-based business models: We embrace alternative billing models which support our principle of 'paying value for value provided.' If our activities are not providing real value to solving your legal problem, we don't bill it. We never bill for phone calls under 10 minutes (we love to speak with our clients without having to worry about the billing clock). Basic transactional and administrative activities (like transmittal letters, filing and other paper moving tasks) can add up to 15% or more of your monthly legal bill with many traditional billing models. We treat these activities as part of the cost of business. You only pay for activities which solve legal problems or are directed at accomplishing your legal goals.
