Fees and Fee Structure
Fees are determined after your initial in-person consultation with Attorney Sweeney and/or Attorney Standiford, who set their hourly rates and retainer requirements based upon the complexity of your case. At the initial consultation you will discuss the issues most important to you concerning a potential divorce, an ongoing divorce case, a child custody issue, and financial disputes in your divorce case or other family or probate law matters. A typical retainer requirement can be anywhere from $1,500 to $7,500, depending on the amount of work Attorney Sweeney estimates will be required.
