- First, of course, you want to choose a lawyer who is knowledgeable and experienced with your type of legal matter.
- Second, you want a lawyer who is willing to spend the time on your case to ensure the best possible result for you.

A retainer is money that you pay to the law firm in advance for legal services that will be rendered.
The amount of payment for the retainer normally depends upon the expected complexity or difficulty of your case.
One of the most traditional ways that lawyers charge for their services is on an hourly basis. In other words, the lawyer will charge you for each hour (or portion of an hour) that the lawyer works on your case. The Kelly Law Firm charges for its services in this manner.
Many factors go into determining how much your case will cost under this fee arrangement. For example, lawsuits can settle quickly, or they can take years to work their way through the court system, making a case very expensive.
An opposing side in a lawsuit could be quite cooperative—or quite uncooperative, making a big difference in how much your case ends up costing. These types of factors are oftentimes not under an attorney’s control. Therefore, it is frequently difficult or impossible to determine at the start of a legal matter how much your legal matter may end up costing.
However, The Kelly Law Firm is sensitive to the expenses associated with a legal matter. Its goal is always to achieve the best result for you in the least expensive manner whenever possible.
This law firm uses a written fee agreement, to make sure that you understand how it bills for its work and for the costs that might be incurred with your case.
