Fee Options

I am serious about aligning my interest with the client’s best interest. That is why my services are provided via pre-determined, project-based fixed fee arrangements. My legal fees are predictable and provide tremendous value.

I understand that you, the client, are purchasing legal expertise and results. You probably don’t care how long it takes us to get the job done – you just want it done and done right.

Under an hourly rate model, clients pay based on attorney time rather than effect, which skews incentives, leading to unnecessary tasks and billing for every minute of time spent on your matter, without consideration for outcomes.

But I base my fees on the value clients place on solving their legal problems, the complexity of the matter, and the risks we share. By setting my fees up front, I work more effectively and without all of the waste caused by hourly billing and its related systemic problems.

So although I could provide services on an hourly basis, I offer clients creative billing structures that free them from the pressures of hourly billing and surprisingly high, and after the fact, legal bills. That means no more invoices for calls or emails to discuss questions or new issues!

What Clients Say About My Fees:

“Extremely effective, and economical!”

“Engaged Dahman Law firm on a fixed fee basis – very focused and goal oriented. Achieved objective that was discussed prior to engagement. Like the fixed fee approach as it helps a small business like us to know exactly what our legal cost is prior to engaging a lawyer. Looking at more work with Dahman Law going forward.”
– Sarwar A., Small Business Owner
