Fees & Payments


We charge flat fees, rather than billing hourly, for almost all of our work.

We accept payments via e-check/EFT and credit cards.

Fees & Payments

Contact DGVE law any time to learn how we can help you, how we work, and how you can get started with a video consultation or in office meeting for professional legal advice. We also encourage you to attend or watch one of our free, educational workshops or webinars.

If you would like private, professional legal advice about your specific matter, please be prepared to pay a professional, legal consultation fee. Attorney Danielle G. Van Ess will listen to your concerns, answer your questions (including some you didn't even know you had!), counsel and advise you, doing the "invisible" part of the legal work (before you can see it on paper) right then and there. That fee will be rolled into or credited against your fee when you engage DGVE law for additional legal work.

Once we decide to work together, we will review the terms and conditions of and sign our "engagement agreement," a contract that clearly explains the total flat fee and the work we will do for you, so you won't have any unpleasant surprises. We really like our clients and enjoy hearing from them; we don't want anyone to be afraid of getting nickel and dimed for contacting us!

We want to help you get the professional legal services you need affordably. We charge flat fees, rather than billing hourly, for almost all of our work and we accept credit cards so you can budget accordingly.

Our firm has made a commitment to mindfully offering its pro bono (free, for the good of the public) legal services. We do not offer free, initial attorney consultations.

DGVE law clients may make payments, via e-check/EFT or credit card, clicking on the appropriate payment link button below.  The payment page will open in a new tab or window.  If you are not already a DGVE law client, you may not make any payments and any attempt to do so will not create an attorney-client relationship nor any other obligations.
