FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS

ARE YOU A REASONABLY PRICED ATTORNEY?

Yes. I charge a standard rate of $310 an hour, which may be adjusted to a client’s financial position.

IF I WROTE EMAILS THAT HURT MY CASE, SHOULD I “LOSE” OR DESTROY
THE EVIDENCE?

I always advise my clients to allow an attorney to sort out what may or may not hurt your case. Destroying documents can result in sanctions from a trial judge that can ultimately hurt the outcome of your case.
