Billing Practices

We charge an hourly rate that is often below the rates charged by other attorneys in the area. We bill in tenth of an hour increments, do not charge for routine overhead expenses such as in-house copying, routine legal research, postage for letters, facsimile transmissions, long distance telephone calls, or mileage within Orange, Durham, and Wake counties. We will also work with you on alternate billing/payment arrangements if necessary.

For traffic matters and most criminal cases, we charge a flat fee, regardless of how your case is resolved. This fee does not include court costs or fines, and there is an additional fee to appeal your case.
