After our initial meeting and we will provide you with our contract, called a “retainer agreement”. It spells out the relative rights and duties for both you and me. It contains an estimate of how many hours we will put into your case and what we think it will cost you to win your case. Like all estimates, it is based on variables, such as the possibility of settlement, the difficulty of the issues, the difficulty of the opposing side and our best guess on the actual length of time and expense needed to be successful. After this initial quote and payment, we will refund any unused portion of your “retainer” payment. The reciprocal is true as well. If we have used up all of your retainer you will be required to replenish the retainer so that we can finish your case. Often times, a small balance exists and payments may become necessary.
Every month we send out, by email unless requested otherwise, a statement of your account(s) showing subtraction of the new charges billed to your account and the remainder of the balance left in your account. We use a a software program called Mycase. We use it to calendar Court dates, to track your billable time, to send you bills and to allow you access to certain documents in your file. This is accomplished through use of a secured client MyCase website portal that you can log into and check at anytime. The MyCase billing system is really simple to read and understand, but most importantly, it conveniently contains a payment link to make payments on your bill. Simply click on it and you are taken to a secure website that can safely store your information and send you a receipt and update your bill. Click Here for more info on MyCase payments.
As an additional option to the MyCase payment mentioned above, we also offer PayPal payments. Just reference the name of our client when making the payment and we will send you a receipt for the bill. It is very simple, just click this link: PayPal.Me/matthewpgomez
We also accept Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Cash and Checks over the phone. Just call our office and we can walk you through the payment. If you need help setting up a payment plan, or wish to discuss other payment options, please do not hesitate to call or email us.
