Hourly fee arrangements

In addition to our fixed fee and contingent fee offerings, we also provide legal services under the traditional hourly rate model.

Our regular hourly rates for legal services are:

  • Civil litigation (Steve Dietrich – $350 per hour; Walter Smith $200 per hour);
  • Campaign disclosure services (Walter Smith – $250 per hour);
  • Probate, guardianship, or estate planning (Steve Dietrich and Walter Smith – $150 per hour)

We take county appointed guardian ad litem work at a significantly reduced rate. We also  offer reduced rates for people of moderate means. For example, we will reduce our normal hourly rate by _% for people with incomes between 200% and 400% of the federal poverty level (2017 FPL).
