We will require that you sign an engagement agreement after your initial consultation, if you determine that you would like for us to provide you with legal services. We often require that you post a retainer with us which we will use to pay fees and costs in your case. Pursuant to Colorado law, client retainers are held in a trust account separate from the law firm’s general account until the fees are earned or the costs are incurred. We will provide you with a monthly statement describing the work performed and the costs incurred to date, and the remainder of your retainer.
The amount of the retainer we require varies and depends on various factors including the type and complexity of the case and the jurisdiction. A retainer is not an estimate of our fees. We will not provide you with an estimate of our fees unless we agree to provide you with certain services on a “flat fee” basis.
We will meet with you for a free 30 minute consultation. While we cannot give you legal advice until we have been apprised of the specific facts of your case, we can have a general discussion with you during your first consultation regarding the law in Colorado as it relates to family law matters, our fees, the time frame for your case, your goals and expectations, and the legal process.
