Fees and Costs
Attorney fees can be a source of concern to potential clients. We try to make the matter as simple and straightforward as possible, with clear written fee agreements. Our fee arrangements are tailored to each client. Specific fee terms are proposed only after full consultation with the client about the nature of the case and objectives of the representation.
Generally, however, Mr. Bove's regular hourly rate is $350. Hourly rates for co-counsel, contract
attorneys, paralegals or investigators are fully disclosed as
applicable. A deposit is generally required at the outset of the
representation, based on the minimum amount of work which appears
likely. Deposits go into the firm trust account and are billed
against as work is done. Any unused amounts always remain the
property of the client and are returned if not used at the
conclusion of the representation. Work which exceeds the deposit
amount is billed to the client, usually on a monthly basis, with
fully itemized invoices in billing increments of a tenth of an hour.
Visa, MasterCard and American Express are accepted.
Some cases may be undertaken on a contingent or percentage fee, and
other types of fee arrangements may be offered in particular cases.
We generally offer a reduced hourly rate of $175 on unemployment compensation
hearings. We offer a one-hour office consultation at the reduced rate of $175,
payable at the time of consultation. Initial telephone consultations
but are not scheduled for particular times. Please call
the office at your convenience, 303-393-6666.
Costs, which include such items as court fees, deposition and court reporter costs, copying, postage,
computerized filing, service and
research charges, travel costs and other out-of-pocket expenses are always the responsibility of the client.
