Because the Firm does not carry a heavy overhead, its hourly rates are significantly below
market for attorneys of comparable reputation and experience.
Legal work is billed by the hour, in increments
of tenths of an hour. Costs are billed without markup. Itemized bills are submitted to clients monthly, and are
payable upon receipt. Retainers may be required, depending on the nature of the matter. Flat-fee arrangements
may be made and payments on account may be negotiated.
Ms. Cumare does not provide
New clients are required to pay for an hour-and-a-half of services at
the beginning of a consultation; this amount is credited to their subsequent invoice.
