Understanding Retainer Fees: Why Ashmore & Ashmore Law Firm Charges Them

Understanding Retainer Fees: What Are They and Why Do We Charge Them?

When you decide to hire Ashmore & Ashmore Law Firm, you'll come across the term "retainer fee." But what exactly does it mean, and why do we charge them? Here’s a simple explanation.

A retainer fee is an upfront payment made to our firm when you hire us. This fee acts as a deposit against future legal fees and expenses. Since we can't predict every detail of your future legal needs, the retainer helps ensure that funds are available as we work on your case. We hold your retainer in trust, using it only as we earn it through our work. And if there are any unused funds at the end of your case, they’ll be promptly returned to you.

Our approach ensures that every client receives top-notch representation, characterized by accessibility, genuine care, and steadfast advocacy. When determining the best retainer structure for you, we consider three key factors:

  1. Core Objectives: What does an ideal future look like for you and your family?
