Do you require a retainer?

Walsh Law usually requires a refundable retainer in an amount based upon the nature of the representation. The retainer amount is held in the firm’s trust account on behalf of the client and will be applied to the client’s invoices as they become due. If the amount of the retainer is not enough to cover the outstanding balance, the invoice will show a balance due, payable upon receipt. Walsh Law may require supplemental retainer payments as representation continues. Upon conclusion of the firm’s representation, in the event that outstanding fees and costs are less than the remaining amount of the retainer, Walsh Law will promptly refund the balance.

How do you get paid?

Walsh Law’s invoices are sent monthly and are due upon receipt unless a refundable retainer has already been provided. Special payment arrangements may be negotiated in advance.

Do you take credit cards?
