What Will This Cost Me?
If a family law attorney says he or she can handle your divorce fast, and on the cheap, you found the wrong attorney.
Divorce is considered one of the most stressful and momentous events in life. Decisions made and actions taken during divorce dictate your future—and that of your children. Never shortchange long-term prospects by hiring fast-talking, poor-performing legal help.
The law firm of Bryan L. Salamone & Associates, P.C. has more dedicated divorce attorneys than any other exclusively divorce and family law firm on Long Island. We are the largest and we are very competitive in our hourly rates, whereas other attorneys charge far more that $400.00 per hour. We maintain our rate of $345 an hour in these economic times and we offer low retainers (as low as $3,450.00) in selected cases. If hiring a good divorce attorney is the only luxury you give yourself, hire Bryan L. Salamone & Associates, P.C. We are more competitively priced than other firms are (and larger), and we aggressively represent clients in divorce and family law.
The cost of your divorce depends on the facts of your case and the skill of your attorney. We are the biggest family law practice on Long Island and we cannot tell you exactly what you will pay. But we can tell you what to expect.
Most attorneys charge by the hour. Rates in New York can run from around $400 to $550 per hour. If your divorce is uncontested, and parties generally agree on issues of child custody and parental rights, your divorce will take less time and cost less money. The greater the conflict on issues, the higher the price tag.
However, there are ways to save money on your divorce. One of those is hiring an experienced, aggressive attorney who delivers needed results as quickly as possible. The cost of divorce depends on you—and the legal counsel you choose. You do not need the most expensive or the cheapest divorce attorney. But you do need the right one.
At Bryan L. Salamone & Associates, P.C., we offer competitive hourly rates and a flat fee for mediation, a lower cost alternative to traditional litigated divorce. Call us today for more information.
