Retention and Fees

At the direction of our client, a Louisiana criminal lawyer Accident Cause Analysis will arrange for one of the following two retention methods:
1. We can work from a retainer amount and once that amount is depleted, work is stopped until a new retainer amount with further instructions is received. This practice assists our clients in keeping informed of case progress and the account; or
2. We can enter into a formal contract, either open-ended or for a maximum number of hours, with payment of our invoices in full within 30 days of receipt of same.
We are happy to set up either method at our client’s request.
