Hourly charges apply to the review of legal documents prepared by other attorneys. All legal opinions are based on New Mexico law regardless of the jurisdiction where the document was drafted.
A minimum retainer of $800 must be on deposit in the client funds account before work is begun. This retainer is applied to regular bills as they are generated.
The law firm has templates for commonly requested legal documents, like wills and revocable trusts. Our goal is to create an integrated set of paperwork that fully accomplishes the client's objectives.
Clients seek legal advice in order to make informed choices. It is not necessary to know in advance what legal documents might be necessary to give effect to the plan that emerges from a consultation.
Most Credit Cards Accepted
The firm's merchant account is with MyCase, a company specifically for lawyers. An initial retainer may be charged by credit card and deposited to a client trust bank account for application to the first months' bill. Thereafter, clients receive their invoices by email and may pay through the secure MyCase website.
