Our firm moved to Value Pricing in 2005. This is a significant departure from the norm in family law and other areas of law where the concept of “hourly billing” has dominated the legal world. Many lawyers today cannot conceive of pricing their services by any method other than the hour, not knowing that hourly billing is a relatively recent concept. Prior to the 1940's hourly billing probably did not even exist. Our firm is committed to giving our customers certainty in the cost of their legal services and unlimited service which is not an add on cost to the service, like an “airline baggage fee.” A recent article published by Bloomberg Law shows that alternatives to the billable hour are beginning to gain a strong foothold in the corporate and high finance worlds.
