FLAT FEE versus HOURLY BILLING
We offer flat fee, transparent pricing. That means you pay one fee for our services. You know up front how much your case will cost.
- FLAT FEE: With flat fee billing, the focus is on value rather than billable hours, which aligns with the interest of the client and the law firm. Lawyers are encouraged to work efficiently to add as much value to the client's case as they can. In a word, fixed fee pricing encourages problem solving.
- HOURLY BILLING: The most obvious drawback of hourly billing is that it could be seen to incentivize inefficiency on the lawyer's part. After all, the longer a case goes on, the more money the law firm makes with an hourly billing model. Hourly billing also creates an element of uncertainty for the client. When work is charged per hour, clients aren't able to budget for the entirety of a case and may end up spending significantly more than they first anticipated.

WOZNICKI LAW does not offer litigation at Trial.
We firmly believe in settlement in family law and do not include Trial as part of our services.
