Fees

Free Initial Consultation?

We offer all of our prospective clients a free "meet and greet." It is a 15 minute meeting with an attorney where you can learn more about our firm, our qualifications, and experience. We also offer a consultation with an attorney for up to an hour, which allows the attorney to learn more about your particular situation and provide responsible advice to you about your legal rights and obligations. We do charge a fee for this consultation, but it is generally a discounted flat fee which is dependent on the type of case, ranging from $50 to $175.

Services Offered For Fixed Fees?

The need for some legal services can arise unexpectedly and cause a financial strain during an already stressful time. When appropriate, Thompson Law Office clients are provided alternative billing arrangement choices, which may include flat fees, hybrid fees (hourly capped at a particular amount, then contingency), monthly retainers, payment plans, or typical hourly rates. All major credit cards are accepted as well. Ask to find out whether your legal matter is appropriate for an innovative billing arrangement.

Hourly Rates

• $145 to $275 for attorneys
• $75 to $125 for paralegals and legal assistants
• $35 to $55 for law clerks

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

Some cases are better suited to what we call "limited representation" engagements than others. Feel free to ask us whether your case is a good fit for this unique approach to resolving your dispute.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

Our firm was founded on the belief that clients deserve more effective and efficient legal services. We strive to utilize the right resources within our firm so that our legal work is both accessible and affordable.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

Mediation, a voluntary and non-binding form of alternative dispute resolutions ("ADR") is beginning to be used more frequently as a method to resolve disputes between parties, particularly when both sides share the view that the cost and stress of litigating the case in court may create a lose-lose outcome. Arbitration, which is binding, is used less frequently, but it remains a viable method of ADR.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

Thompson Law Office provides pro bono legal services to qualified clients and takes pride in contributing to various local causes.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Thompson Law Office embraces the latest technologies available to law firms in an effort to enhance communication with our clients and provide more cost-effective legal services. We have exceptional legal resources allowing us to provide big firm service with small firm attention. We offer innovative billings arrangements, such as flat fees, hybrid fees, and payment plans in some cases. We strive to provide superior customer service to our clients.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Having an informed client makes our representation more effective and demonstrates a client's commitment to the cause. We strive to educate our clients on legal issues while encouraging them to be engaged in the process and seek answers to their legal questions.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Under appropriate circumstances we will review client-prepared documents and make suggestions in the interest of cost-effective legal services.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

We recognize that some disputes do not justify an attorney appearing in court and will work with "pro se" clients who choose to represent themselves in court. In fact, in Nebraska's small claims courts, parties are not allowed to have attorneys. Oftentimes we can assist after a client is awarded a judgment by taking steps to collect on the judgment or "garnish" or "execute" on the judgment debtor's property.
