Office Fees

Fleming & Curti, PLC, provides a range of services for a wide variety of clients. In all cases, fees are subject to the specific facts of the case and our desire and obligation to charge a fee that is reasonable. Please note that we welcome discussion about different fee arrangements, which might include a flat fee or an hourly rate with a set maximum.

Fleming & Curti charges prospective clients an initial consultation fee.

If you decide to hire us, during or shortly after the initial meeting, you will receive a fee agreement that outlines the scope of our work and the fees for our services. If you have questions about the fee, please raise them.

For most matters, the fee is an hourly rate for time actually spent. Each staff member who works on the case keeps track of his or her time and bills at a predetermined rate. The current hourly rates, by staff role, are:

  • Attorneys – $300 – $450
  • Case Managers – $150 – $200
  • Legal Assistants – $160 – $200
  • Certified Public Accountant – $175 – $275
  • Financial Assistants – $100-$175
  • Administrative Assistants – $100 – $130

We bill our work in tenth-of-an-hour segments for each activity. We also bill for costs we advance, which might include such things as court filing fees; certified copies issued by government offices; deposition costs; and publishing, recording, and service-of-process fees.

Although each case is different, we are comfortable with sharing fee ranges for typical estate-planning cases. The final fee in any case will of course depend on the complexity of the case and the actual amount of work done.

Single person: will and powers of attorney: $1,200 – $2,200.
Single person: trust, will, powers of attorney: $1,500 – $3,500.
Married couple: wills and powers of attorney: $1,500 – $2,500.
Married couple: trust, wills and powers of attorney: $3,000 – $5,500.

Additional fees may apply for preparation of special needs trusts, deeds and other ancillary estate planning documents.

The firm is licensed by the State of Arizona as a professional fiduciary. That means Fleming & Curti seives as trustee, personal representative, conservator, guardian, or agent under a power of attorney. We set a fee for these cases that is reasonable under the circumstances. That may be hourly or a percentage of the value of the estate. We are happy to discuss questions you may have about naming Fleming & Curti as fiduciary in your documents. If we are named, no fee is charged until we are called upon to act.

Our offices are conveniently located with ample parking, and we strive to make the place comfortable for clients and other visitors. If you prefer a telephone or video conference instead of an office meeting, we will try to accommodate that request. We also can travel to meet with you at your office, home, or another place of your choosing, though there may be an additional fee for an off-site visit.
