  • If you have already spoken to our attorney or otherwise gotten a quote and are ready to proceed, then you can pay the retainer fees on our website or by dropping off payment at any office. Once we have payment and the questionnaire then we can communicate by phone and email (so you do not have to necessarily take off work if you want) to get the process started. Of course, you can always just schedule an appointment with the attorney in any of our offices and pay the fees at your appointment.
