Definitions

Retainer Fee

Your initial consultation with the lawyer is included in the $40 administrative fee. However, if you decide to hire the lawyer for further services, you may be asked to pay a retainer fee.

A retainer fee is an amount you pay up-front, before you see the lawyer again. When you meet with the lawyer, he or she will take their payment from this retainer fee first. Once services go over this amount, you will need to begin hourly payments to your lawyer.
