Atticus Family Law charges on an hourly basis. We use a written fee agreement to set the hourly rates for our work.
As work is completed and billed to you the earned funds are transferred from a trust account to our firm’s account. Upon completion of our firm’s work any remaining retainer funds in the trust account are returned to you. Retainer payments can be paid with cash, a personal check, a bank or cashier’s check, or a credit card or debit card.
We have several opportunities for face-to-face meetings with our clients, both in-person and online.
It’s helpful if you write down your questions before the meeting. That way, you can ensure all of your questions and concerned are addressed.
Our attorneys and staff meet with clients at each of our three office locations. The Stillwater and Saint Paul offices are staffed from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday; the Minneapolis office is by appointment only.
Many times, it is crucial that we have an important discussion but there are complications. It’s clear that meeting face-to-face is better for the discussion than talking on the telephone, but the availability and logistics make an in-person meeting difficult or impossible. Hence we offer our clients online video conferencing through Zoom and video chat. The information necessary to access your meeting will be provided prior to your appointment.
For those people interested in our legal services, we schedule in-person face-to-face meetings. When those people live abroad or outside of Minnesota (or they have very particular other circumstances) we will schedule an online consultation with them.
