Every client, regardless of size or wealth, seeks affordable cost-effective resolution of business disputes. Page Law Firm prices its services at affordable levels for business disputes, and strives to deliver services in a cost-effective manner.
Page Law Firm is Naturally Cost Effective
Page Law Firm has cost advantages over some of our hourly billing competitors. Our hourly rates are reasonably comparable. However our feeling is that our total fee is naturally lower because of several factors:
- There are no second lawyers billing on your matter, and no work is assigned to train young lawyers. Lewis does it all. You get the benefit of his knowledge and seasoned experience.
- Lewis is in sole control of an office for which he has developed practices, systems and procedures that have been stable, but improving, since he left a large firm and started his solo practice in 1993. We are not reinventing the wheel in managing the practice.
- Page Law Firm has stable employees. We are not training employees.
- Because Lewis works under contingency fees, he is always mindful of the out-of-pocket costs of litigation since expenses are not immediately recovered in monthly billings but instead are deferred until there is a recovery for the client. That means Lewis is carrying the expenses personally in contingency cases until they are resolved.

Weekly Billing to Monitor Costs Closely
One problem for small businesses, their owners and executives that a straight hourly billing arrangement may produce unexpected spikes in billings, and clients often fear that costs will quickly spiral out of control without the opportunity for input from them.
Because of advanced technology, bills may be sent weekly so a client can closely monitor costs and advise if they do not wish such work performed on their behalf.
