“We have no idea how much this is going to cost.”
“We bill hourly and charge for every email, phone call, and text message.”
“Flat fee or contingency fee? That’s just not how we handle cases.”
Does this sound familiar and make you want to pull your hair out?
Virtually no other industry this day and age is so inflexible. We started this law firm to reinvent the law firm model—and one of the key components is billing.
At Margulis Gelfand, we have the ability to work with our clients on an individual fee arrangement that makes sense for each client. When it is appropriate for the case, we move beyond the billable hour to flat fees and contingency fees. And when we do bill by the hour, we strive to be fair and transparent about the costs involved. Rest assured—there will be no incremental charges for short phone calls or two-sentence emails.
It’s the 21st Century, so we strive to have flexibility in payment methods, including options to pay by credit card, digitally, and by check, wire-transfer, or cash. We just try to make it easy.
