Manageable Billing Arrangements
Attorney Voss Lees has multiple billing arrangements customized for each client. Examples of billing arrangements include: billing at an hourly rate, charging a flat fee, and collecting a retainer (money up front) and billing against that retainer. The unearned portion of a retainer is completely refundable. Attorney Voss Lees also encourages clients to participate actively and do appropriate legwork for their cases. Client participation saves money for clients.
Attorney Voss Lees takes into consideration clients’ individual circumstances when quoting fees. The total fee charged reflects the value of the services to the client when measured against the anticipated result. In exchange, she expects her clients to pay her promptly for services. In the unlikely event that issues in the attorney-client relationship make that relationship unworkable, actions taken to resolve the issues, including attorney withdrawal, are handled in a manner consistent with the Massachusetts Rules of Professional Conduct.
