   HENAK LAW FAQ
Cost FAQs


What is your normal fee?

Because we cannot reasonably anticipate all the twists and turns of litigation, the attorneys at Henak Law Office, S.C., rarely set a flat fee for their services. Rather, we require an initial deposit into our client trust account and charge against those funds for our time at hourly rates based on each attorney's experience.

The time needed in a given case, and thus the ultimate attorney fee, depends on the size of the record to be reviewed, the complexity of any issues to be raised, and the need for any investigation or evidentiary hearing to present them.

For information on the likely cost of representation in your case, please contact the attorneys directly.

Would you charge me anything beyond the attorney fee for your time?

In addition to the hourly attorney fees for legal services, the client is also responsible for expenses incurred by this law firm in connection with its representation. Such expenses include the costs of transcripts, court documents, any investigator or expert expenses, and copying of briefs or larger motions. However, Henak Law Office, S.C., does not charge for telephone toll charges, computer research costs, or routine postage and copying.

How much would it cost for you to review my case?

Each case is unique. For information on the initial deposit (and an estimate of total costs) required for your case, please contact the attorneys directly.

Do I have to pay anything up front?

Yes, we require an initial deposit into our client trust account and then bill against those funds as work is performed.

For information on the initial deposit (and estimate of total costs) required for your case, please contact the attorneys directly.

Do you accept a payment plan?

Henak Law Office, S.C., generally accepts payment plans from existing clients who have established a record of paying their obligations to the firm on a timely basis.

Potential new clients may establish a payment plan pursuant to a fee agreement by depositing funds into our client trust account, with Henak Law Office, S.C., beginning work on the case when the balance reaches the initial deposit required by that agreement.

Do you provide a written fee agreement?

Yes. Consistent with the Wisconsin's requirements for attorneys, Henak Law Office, S.C., provides a written fee agreement letter to each client and to those actually paying the fees for the client. The client and those paying the fees must return a signed copy of that fee agreement letter, indicating their understanding and agreement to the terms stated in the agreement.

Do you take credit cards?

Not at this time.

Do you handle cases for free (pro bono)?

The attorneys at Henak Law Office, S.C., occasionally will handle an appeal on a pro bono basis at the request of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals or Supreme Court. Only rarely and in extraordinary circumstances will Henak Law Office, S.C., handle a case pro bono at the request of a particular defendant.
