About Pricing

Most lawyers are not very transparent about pricing.  I cannot change that, but I can offer an alternative vision.  I believe you are entitled to know exactly what a service costs before you decide to hire an attorney.  Consequently, I offer all services on a fixed price basis.  The price includes an initial phone conference or in-person visit to discuss your situation, followed by an in-person meeting to review your documents with you before signing, plus any revisions that may be necessary before signing.

Generally, I conduct the in-person meetings at my client’s residence, nursing home, or some other mutually convenient location.  I do not charge for travel time or mileage within Jefferson County, and will discuss the terms for traveling outside of the Louisville area at the time of the initial consultation.
