Clients are expected to pay their bills in full as they are billed. Your retainer and hourly rate will be established in your consultation.

What type of payment do you accept?

We accept most major credit cards, including American Express, Visa and Discover. We also accept cash and check.

How tough are your attorneys?

The attorneys at Hoffman Walker & Knauf are able to develop a strategy for your case based upon the people involved and the issues presented.
