1) Once legal documents are reviewed, approved and executed by the client, the documents are not subject to return for refund. However, where changes to document text, which text was reviewed and approved by the client prior to execution, are requested within thirty (30) days of execution, such changes in text will be made and re-execution of the document will be conducted at reduced charge, which is to say less than originally charged but not without at least minimal charge, the amount of which charge being determined by the law firm based on the time and professional services required to alter document text previously approved by the client, and by such costs as those that result from additional signing ceremony.
2) In cases of estate planning, clients receive both original documents and copies at the time of execution or very shortly thereafter. However, original documents required to be filed with the Court or with other governmental agencies can only be returned to the client if said governmental agencies subsequently make original documents available; otherwise only copies of documents filed with governmental agencies will be available to the client, and will be provided as soon as copies of said documents are released by the governmental agency.
3) Client information is not provided to third parties without client consent. Personal information is protected by multiple redundant security arrangements, both as to electronic and hardcopy documentation.
4) Clients receive estimation of legal product costs at time of engaging attorney’s services. Flat fees for products such as those involved in estate planning are clearly stated in the Representation Agreement signed in all cases. Where hourly fees are charged, such as in cases that involve Court actions, only reasonable estimations can be provided due to facts and circumstances the entirety of which are almost never known at the outset of such cases. However, in the Representation Agreement, the attorney will attempt to estimate the range of total costs to be reasonably expected, but always with the caveat that there can be no guarantee as to total costs because unexpected issues may give rise to legal services requiring time to accomplish, which issues were either not expected or not possible to predict at the outset of the legal services.
