The current billing range for our services is $380 per hour for my time, $320 per hour for my partner's time and $125 per hour for our legal assistant's time, all billed in tenths of an hour with an explanation of each billing entry. At the beginning, we require a deposit/retainer which typically ranges between $3,000 to $5,000, which is returned to the client at the conclusion of services if the client has paid all billing.
