Fee Schedule

After we discuss your work, perform a conflict check, and accept your assignment, we will email a Letter of Engagement, Fee Schedule, and CV for your file.   We will prepare a cost budget and keep it amended when requested.

Fee Schedule Summary

Hourly Rate:   Work performed on the project including testimony to the nearest tenth of an hour.   A retainer may be required.   Normal overhead costs are included within our hourly rate.

• Normal overhead costs that are included within our hourly rate include at least: opening, organizing, and closing files; billing preparation and review; office overhead; administration, clerical, and secretarial time including the time to make and change travel arrangements; individual meals unless associated with an overnight stay; photographic charges; communication charges; fuel unless associated with a rental vehicle; and corporate insurance costs. Said differently, these items do not incur additional charges and thus are not charged to your job.

Travel Rate:  Reasonable.  We do not double bill.  We split travel costs with other jobs when appropriate.

Laboratory & Evidence Storage:  As appropriate and agreed upon.
