Billing & Rates
Gebhardt, Emerson, & Moodie, Family Law LLC understands that hiring an attorney is a financial commitment that no one wants to enter into. We also believe that your case deserves to be heard. As such, we tailor our fee structure to meet the individual needs of each case and handle each family matter as efficiently as possible, given your family's unique legal situation.
Fees and rates involved in trying a domestic case are typically incurred in the following ways:
- Free Consultation
- General Legal Representation
- Unbundled Legal Services
If you have further questions, comments, or concerns about keeping costs down, please feel free to reach out and contact us today.
Our free consultation is an opportunity for a potential client to meet with the attorney, ask general questions, and determine if representation may be appropriate. This initial consultation does not establish a client-attorney relationship. Free consultations, up to an hour in length, are happily offered to potential clients at Gebhardt, Emerson, & Moodie, Family Law LLC. The more we know about your case prior to this initial consultation, the more efficiently we can use our time together. As such, we recommend taking the time to submit your case details before our scheduled meeting.
General Legal Representation
Gebhardt, Emerson, & Moodie, Family Law LLC provides legal services at an hourly rate. Research or support services performed by law clerks, legal assistants, or paralegals are charged at a lower rate but also on an hourly basis. Retainers are required in each case and will vary depending on the number of factors. These may include (but are not limited to) a case's complexity, estimated time commitment and effort, whether a hearing is already scheduled and imminent, and its location.
Gebhardt, Emerson, & Moodie, Family Law LLC allows the client to choose a lower "sustaining" retainer, where the client is required to keep the initial retainer amount in the client's trust account throughout the pendency of the case. This allows us to take cases with a lower retainer than many law firms in the Denver Metro area.
Unbundled Legal Services
Gebhardt, Emerson, & Moodie, Family Law LLC can accommodate cases where clients want to retain an attorney on a limited basis at a lower retainer or a flat fee. To determine the retainer and/or fee required for unbundled services, schedule a meeting with us today.
Mediation can often assist families going through legal matters resolve their issues without litigation. This less adversarial route oftentimes resolves family law matters more satisfactorily for both parties and allows for less conflict than litigation. Gebhardt, Emerson, & Moodie, Family Law LLC offers mediation services at an hourly rate, and the fee is due at the completion of mediation. Costs of mediation are generally split equally between the parties, unless a different agreement is reached before the mediation.
When I was served three days before my hearing, which was almost 800 miles away, my nerves shot through the roof. However, not even an hour or two later I was able to get Ashley on the phone and working for my rights. The degree of dedication you can see in how she represents you was all the more comforting as well. She's organized, detail-oriented and incredibly intelligent. From the time I first spoke with her there was never a doubt in my mind about her competence. Usually, it can be difficult to communicate with attorneys because of their busy schedules; however, big or small, if you have even the slightest concern or question she will make the time for you to go over whatever it is that might be bothering you. Simply put, Ashley sincerely cares about the cases and clients in her charge, and the quality of her representation truly shines in a court room. She will fight for your rights as if they were her own, so when she was able to have my case dismissed I wasn't even the slightest bit surprised.
Erika is an incredible attorney and has been especially helpful in crafting out of the box solutions, post decree, in a very high conflict divorce. Her help and legal support has been life changing!
