Reduced Hourly Rate

Plan attorneys have contracted to charge 40% off their normal hourly rate, with a minimum of $125 per hour, for legal care beyond the free and discounted services.  Court costs, filing fees and time charged for travel to and from any courts are additional.


In the case of extended legal care, plan attorneys may ask you for a retainer.   Any retainer sought will be computed by multiplying the number of hours a plan attorney believes a case will take, by the appropriate discounted hourly plan rate.

For Example

10 hours x $125.00 = a retainer of $1,250.00. Any unused portion of the retainer will be returned to the member.
