1. “Interest” in the table above is based on the amount reserved for a legal successor. 
2. Cases where retainer fees cannot be calculated (e.g. when no clear total amount was specified when the case was assigned or when the total inheritance amount was very large (which would result in a significant retainer fee)), retainer fees can be paid partially or in full when the case is terminated. Reduced retainer fees may also be considered on a case-by-case basis. Ask us if you have any questions.
3. Retainer and contingent fees (or calculation method applied) will be clearly indicated before we agree to accept your case.
