FAQ

WHAT AND HOW WILL THE LEGAL SERVICE COST?

Hourly fee: On an hourly fee basis, fees are based on an hourly rate for services rendered. A detailed, itemized bill will be given to you showing all work done on your case. This explanation may come monthly or at the end of your case, whichever way you choose to be billed. Unless otherwise agreed, the hourly fee basis will be the presumed fee arrangement.
Contingency fee: On a contingency fee basis, your legal fees will be based on the amount of recovery we get for you; no recovery, no fee. You may have the option of choosing this plan in lieu of hourly charges. Not all cases qualify for the contingency basis; we will tell you if yours does. In either case, we will prepare for you an employment agreement setting forth the fee arrangement.

WHAT DO I DO WHEN I HAVE A QUESTION?

We are interested in your questions and concerns and we want you to ask them. Also, one must understand that the legal process of a case can stretch through a long period of time. In the office we meet with clients, prepare contracts, review documents, undergo research, and more. With that being said, we want to answer the questions that you may have. Feel free to contact us, the most proficient and quickest response you have is to call the office with your questions, and one of our legal assistants will be glad to answer any questions you may have with your case. If a legal assistant cannot answer your question, we can arrange for you to have contact with an attorney for the concerns you may have.

DO I NEED TO COME INTO YOUR OFFICE AND MEET YOU IN PERSON TO RETAIN YOU, OR TO RECEIVE LEGAL SERVICES?

In almost all instances, the answer is no. We often do business with clients who have busy schedules or are located very far from the office, but we are still able to provide superior legal services to them as well. Most of our communication can be done via telephone, in fact majority of client matters can be handled entirely through phone, fax, email, and mail. This may actually be more beneficial for you, for with hourly billing arrangements this usually can reduce the overall bill. For in-person office meetings can have a slower pace than these other forms of communication. But if you wish to have a meeting with us, you certainly can; just call and we can schedule an appointment.

HOW WILL I BE KEPT INFORMED OF MY CASE?

Communication between client and attorney is very important to us. But contacting you on a daily or even weekly basis is not productive for either parties. In order to keep the cost of legal services down, while maximizing communication with our clients, we will notify and contact you whenever anything important happens, or if your presence is required in office or in court. The Law Offices of Jon Webster will do their best to keep you up-to-date and well informed about your case, while working together to yield the desired results.
