Advanced Estate Planning for an Hourly-Fee
If a more sophisticated estate plan is required to address your estate, there is no way to know in advance how complex your estate plan will be. There is also no way to estimate costs. The only fair way to bill attorney’s fees for these types of cases is to bill fees on an hourly basis. No flat fees are available. Effective January 1, 2017, The Duran Firm’s hourly rate for attorney’s fees is $300 per hour. The Duran Firm’s hourly rate for paralegal work is $100 per hour.
