How Our Fees Are Determined and Communicated to You

At Van Horn Law Group, we understand that each legal matter and personal situation is unique, so our legal fees vary from person to person. Our process for determining fees involves a thorough discussion of your specific circumstances and legal goals, typically conducted during a free initial consultation, either over the phone or in person at our office. Should there ever be a fee for an initial consultation, you will be informed when booking your appointment to avoid any surprises.

After this initial consultation, we will clearly communicate our fees for your consideration. If you decide to engage our services, we will formalize our agreement with a Client Engagement Agreement. This document outlines the services we will provide, the fee structure, payment terms, and other important details, including our policies on payment collection, cessation of services for non-payment, and communication practices.

Some People We Cannot Help and Individual Results May Vary

If we determine that we are unable to assist you, we will let you know during the initial consultation or through follow-up communication if further research is needed. It's important to note that results can vary significantly from case to case, and while we strive to achieve the best outcomes for our clients, we cannot guarantee specific results. Therefore, any results, reviews, or testimonials on our website should not be considered indicative of what we can achieve for you.

Non-Payment and Stoppage of Our Services

In cases where clients fail to make payments, and no additional payment arrangements are made, we may need to temporarily or permanently cease providing services. If services were provided but the payment plan was not fulfilled, penalties may apply as detailed in our Client Engagement Agreement. We may also engage a collections firm to recover any outstanding fees.

About Our Affordable Payment Plan Option

Many clients prefer to pay their fees upfront or on a retainer basis, but we also offer an affordable payment plan option for personal bankruptcy cases. Here’s how it works: after signing an engagement for services agreement with our firm, the court filing fees and associated costs will be paid upfront (these may be waived in extreme circumstances as determined by the Court). Our $0 Down option applies to attorney fees only. We will work with you to establish a payment plan based on your ability to pay, ensuring you are fully aware of the costs in advance. You’ll make monthly payments until our fees are paid in full. This flexible payment option allows you to manage your financial obligations while proceeding with the bankruptcy process. If you have any questions about this service, please contact our office.
