Billing Information: Hourly and Flat Fee rates
Our Family Law Fair Approach to Attorney Fees:
At Vette Family Law we offer multiple options for billing including flat fee billing.
Option 1) Flat fee billing takes the mystery and stress out of budgeting for your case. Our divorce lawyers of Boynton Beach and Palm Beach County legal team believe that a client should know what their family law case will cost up-front. With flat fee billing, you will not receive surprise bills with fees you did not expect or anticipate. You will not be billed separately for calls, emails, and messages. We take a high-tech approach to handling your case which helps us keep costs low and be efficient.
*Flat fees are quoted at the time of the consultation depending on the complexity of the case, assets involved, and level of acrimony.*
