Types of Legal Fees


Hourly Fee

The Firm may undertake legal representation on an hourly basis. Generally, a retainer fee is collected upfront before work begins. The retainer fee goes into an escrow account and clients receive notice of legal fees incurred through a monthly invoicing system (by mail or electronic). The amount of the retainer fee and the hourly rates depend on the nature of the case and the scope of representation. Your attorney will go over specific details with you during a consultation before undertaking any work.

Flat Fee

As an alternative to hourly rates, the Firm may charge a flat fee rate to prepare certain legal documents, including (but not limited to) deeds, powers of attorney, wills, trusts, and advance medical directives. Flat fees may also be offered for those clients seeking special needs, asset protection, and long-term care planning services. Fees vary based on complexity and whether a client is single or married (typically requiring two sets of documents); therefore, we recommend scheduling an initial consultation with an attorney to discuss your individual needs to better quote for legal services.

Contingency Fee

Contingency fees vary and are typically set forth for litigated cases only. Schedule a consultation with one of our litigation attorneys to determine the appropriate course of legal action and fees associated with potential representation.

Payment Options

Oast & Taylor offers a variety of ways to pay legal fees. The Firm accepts traditional payments, such as cash or checks, and also accepts major credit cards, such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
