In most cases, A consult is required for Colton to get a feel for your issue. This can be done by phone or in person. Once he feels like you both understand your needs, He will quote a retainer. The retainer will be due in full before services begin.
A retainer fee is based on a "best guess" of how much time it will take to get through your case. Once Colton determines the time he might need to complete your case, he will ask for a sum of money to deposit into his Client Trust Account. All funds will sit in this account until they are earned by Colton, at which time, he will provide you with an invoice and withdraw the earned amount. The money is still yours until it is earned. If he gets to the end of your retainer and the case is not complete, Colton will ask for another retainer to continue the case. If he completes the case early and money is left in the Trust account, that money will be returned to you promptly.
Yes, in almost all cases, Colton will require the full sum to be deposited before he begins work on your case. He understands this is a hardship and will wait for you to gather the funds needed. Other arrangements can be made in very special circumstances. Colton would have to hear your proposal and make that choice. It is the industry standard that all retainers be paid in full before an Attorney will begin work on your case.
