Hourly representation is the traditional method for attorneys to represent their clients and typically involves taking a “retainer” and billing against that “retainer” on a time-spent or “hourly” basis. This type of representation is most appropriate for cases that meet the following criteria:
1) Client wants full-service and does not wish to do much (or any) fact-gathering or other case management or preparation, but prefers to have the attorney and staff at GordenLaw handle all aspects of the case;
2) There are significant unknowns about the facts or outcome of the matter;
3) There is significant contention between the parties in a given matter and most (or all) decisions will need to be made by a judge in a court of law;
4) The matter has novel or unusual facts or does not have established law to guide the clients and attorneys involved; etc.
