Attorney Fees & Payments

Estate Planning Fees (Wills & Trusts)

We offer flat-fee, flat-rate pricing for our estate planning services whenever possible, with no hidden costs. This eliminates uncertainty in billing and the stress of worrying about skyrocketing legal fees, and allows us to focus on creating the best estate plan possible based on your goals, wishes, and objectives. Every estate plan we prepare for our clients is customized for their unique situation and needs. During your Peace of Mind Planning Session, we will discuss all of your needs, objectives, and wishes, and compare the various options available to you to accomplish them.  At that time, we can almost always offer you flat-fee quotes so you can compare options and choose the right plan for you and your family.

Probate Court Fees

Most probate court attorney fees in California are set by statute pursuant to Probate Code §10810 et seq., and attorneys are not able to charge more than this amount absent extraordinary circumstances.  We will discuss the statutory fee scale with you during your initial consultation.  The final disbursement of funds and proceeds from the estate, including attorney fees and Executor/Administrator fees, are made at the close of probate along with any remaining creditor's bills and distributions to the beneficiaries and/or heirs.

Trust & Estate Administration Fees

Trust and estate administration fees are billed at our prevailing hourly rates, and we do request a reasonable retainer deposit in advance to get started.  The amount of the retainer deposit will depend on the complexity of our assignment and the anticipated workload will be doing for you.  We will discuss attorney fees in detail during your Initial Consultation. 

Family Law Fees

The vast majority of family law fees are billed at our prevailing hourly rates, and we do request a reasonable retainer deposit in advance to get started.  The amount of the retainer deposit will depend on the complexity of our assignment and the anticipated workload will be doing for you.  In some instances, when we are able to very clearly define the scope of our assignment, we may be able to offer flat-fee, flat-rate pricing.  Some examples of those instances would be hiring our attorney to make a one-time court appearance at a hearing, or reviewing a prenuptial agreement, etc.  We will discuss this in detail during your Initial Consultation.

Military and Masonic Discounts Available 

We offer discounted fees and hourly rates to military service members and their spouses, as well as to members of the extended California Masonic family and Shriners, as our way of thanking you for your service to our nation, our communities, our families, and our children.
