Outside of law school classes, I learned corporations and the rich can afford any lawyer they want and the very poor often can get the State to pay for their lawyers. It is the ordinary folks in the middle who have the most difficulty affording counsel. So for the past 35 years, I’ve tried to hold my fees to a range affordable for regular middle class folks.
Nevertheless, appeals are not cheap, especially when you want you hire someone like me with 35 years of experience and several victories. My fee is going to be several thousand dollars but I will try to give you the best terms possible.
