Attorney Fees

Florida families are entitled to legal advice that is sensible and cost effective

Hyde Law Office offers reasonable hourly rates and always charges a reasonable retainer.  Service agreements are spelled out in written and signed contracts.  Clear detailed invoices are sent out regularly to our clients.  As an alternative to hourly billing, we can offer flat fees, continuing consultations and limited appearances. In addition to our reasonable hourly rates, the following can be available:

  • Flat Fees > One basic upfront fee.  This covers all paperwork, all hearings, all conferences associated with your case.  You may call the office and speak to your attorney as much as you want.  Unlimited agreed upon services for one flat fee.
  • Limited Appearance > For clients who like to be hands-on, and have the time to handle their own case, but need extra help in certain areas, Florida Family Court Division allows limited appearances in certain areas.  You only pay the office for that limited time you need an attorney in court.  Contact our office for more information.
  • Consultation Basis > An initial consultation may not be enough for some clients.  For continued consultations, review and analysis of paper work and advice, Hyde Law Office charges a reasonable consultation fee that may be just right for you.
  • Attorney Fee From Your Spouse > In some instances, the court may order your spouse to pay your attorney fees.  Contact us for more information.
