  1. Hourly fee rate
  2. Flat fee (based on our expected time of completion in routine matters)
  3. Contingent amount
  4. Special contingent-plus-bonus arrangements

Except in contingent fee arrangements, clients will be billed monthly and payment within 10 days of presentation of the bill is expected unless other arrangements are made in advance.
