Fair, Transparent, and Flexible Legal Fees

Legal-FeesOur Chicago business attorneys and estate planning attorneys offer clients flexible, flat-fee pricing options for a broad range of estate planning and business legal services.  From fixed-fee projects, hybrid hourly/contingency options, to monthly membership programs, our Chicago business law firm will work with you and your small business to ensure greater affordability, efficiency, and transparency in our billing practices.

Transparent Billing Practices

No surprises!  Because we offer flat-fee pricing for the majority of our estate planning and business legal services, our clients do not have to worry about receiving a massive legal bill at the conclusion of the matter. If the completion or resolution of a legal matter is uncertain and we cannot offer a flat-fee, our Chicago wealth and business law firm will provide each of our clients the ability to monitor legal costs through their secure Client Accounts. The time we spend on a project is immediately posted to the client’s personal password-protected homepage and is instantly available for review. Clients may view detailed descriptions of the legal services we provide at anytime, and at their convenience.

Flat Fees for New Business Start-up

In today’s economic climate, start-ups in particular are increasingly looking for ways to curb costs of their legal services and to reduce uncertainty of legal fees.  Flat-fee arrangements for legal services that promise both certainty and the reduction of costs are an attractive alternative to an hourly fee arrangement.

In the start-up phases, new business clients generally do not want to spend much money on business entity research and legal explanations of comparative benefits and drawbacks. New business owners just want their business incorporated or  limited liability comapany organized, so the business owner can quickly launch their new idea, product or service.  Our Chicago business attorneys understand the need to be flexible with legal fees for new small business clients. Instead of billing by the hour or minute, we negotiate flat-fee projects in advance for new small business owners. Our flat-fee legal fees will be based on the specific legal issues involved and the new business owner’s financial resources.

Flat Fee’s For State and Federal Trademark Services

Virtually every business owner, entrepreneur uses or intends to use a trademark to identify their products, goods or services. The trademarks adopted by business owners or entrepreneurs often serve as the centerpiece of their marketing, branding, and sales efforts and are critical to the businesses’ success. Federal trademark registration and Illinois trademark registration, which provides state and nationwide rights in the trademark, is more important than ever as we move forward into an increasingly technology driven business environment.  To help business owner and entrepreneurs protect the intellectual property and good will of their company brand, we offer flat fee pricing on many of our Illinois and federal trademark legal services.  Please send our trademark attorney, Kelly Frame, and email or call our law firm for more trademark information.

Flat Fee’s for Estate Planning

Unlike many Chicago estate planning attorneys, our law firm offers flat-fee pricing for the majority of our estate planning services.  Generally, estate planning involves a four step process and at least two private consultations with our attorneys to help you and/or your family understand the features of the estate plan.  The four steps typically include:

  • Information gathering to assess your goals and estate planning needs.
  • Presentation of strategic estate planning choices on plan details.
  • Estate Plan document and agreement review and execution (signing, witnessing and notarization).
  • Funding the revocable trust, if appropriate, and notifying key trustees, executors, of his/her duties regarding the estate plan.

Our estate planning attorneys will meet you in our offices, at your home, or at another location of convenience to explain the estate planning process, define you and your families estate planning goals, and help you and your family move forward in making important legacy decisions.
