Frequently Asked Questions

If this is the first time you are seeking legal help, you probably have a lot of questions. Below, you'll find some of the most frequent questions we receive from new clients at Norland Law Firm LLC. 

If you don't see your question listed here, feel free to contact us at 608-519-3664. We will be glad to assist you.

The Big One - How Much Does It Cost?

Unfortunately, there is no clear answer to this question. We use two different fee structures. For criminal cases, we generally (not always) charge a flat rate for representation. That rate depends on a variety of factors, including what county your case is in and how serious the charges are. For Family Law cases, attorney time is billed hourly at $250.00/hour, and we do require an advanced payment on fees. Unlike other firms, we do not charge for staff time and you will only get billed for work that an attorney actually does on your case. No fluffing the bill.

We use a variety of methods to keep fees down for clients, including e-mail communication and transmitting documents electronically when allowed. If it's faster for us, it is cheaper for you. Don't have e-mail ? Not a problem, we still own phones and can send letters. We do require an advanced fee payment for nearly all cases - The exact amount will be discussed during your initial consultation.

Is The Consultation With An Actual Attorney?

Yes. Your initial contact with our office will be with Brittany, our paralegal, to get all of the basic information on your case, and to make sure it is a good fit for our practice areas. After that initial screening you will be put on the schedule for a consultation regarding your issue. Brittany will also explain the different types of consultations and the cost associated with each one.

Do I Have To Hire You If I Have A Consultation? 

No – the consultation is no risk to you and no commitment. Our attorney will speak with you, go through your case, ask a bunch of questions, and talk with you about what is going on. If appropriate, you will be quoted with a price and then it will be up to you whether to hire us or not. 

Attorney Norland is not a used car salesman, and he does not expect you to drive an attorney “off the lot” without having time to think about it. If you do not hire us, this consultation does NOT create an attorney–client relationship. However, you certainly may choose to hire us at your consultation and we will gladly begin fighting for you.

We have heard over and over again from people who have taken advantage of our consultations that they feel peace of mind afterwards. No matter what your legal issue is right now, we are certain that peace of mind is something you are seeking.
