When you contact our firm, we will explain our process on the phone and schedule an initial consultation with you. We do not charge attorney fees for an initial consultation. At the conclusion of your initial consultation, we will provide an estimated fee range based on our initial expectations of the services we anticipate you will need. Depending on the types of services you need, we may charge a flat fee or an hourly rate. At Howes Law, we strive to provide efficient legal services and charge fees that are fair to both our clients and us, commensurate with the value we deliver.

For Estate Planning clients, we charge a flat fee based on the design of your plan. For more information on our planning process, please review What Our Clients Can Expect: Estate Planning Process. Please understand that we do not simply fill out generic forms for you to sign. We craft a custom estate plan and draft specialized documents to meet your specific needs. Only after we’re clear on the work required to accomplish your specific goals and objectives can we quote an appropriate fee. We firmly believe this personalized approach provides exceptional value to our clients and far outweighs any nominal savings up front.
For Probate and Estate/Trust Administration and Business Planning clients, we charge based on an hourly rate or flat fee basis, depending on the nature of the request and the individual client’s preferences. When you contact us, we will discuss your needs and decide on a fee structure that works best for you.
