    A note about our fees: In our experience, hourly billing is the fairest way for us to bill our clients and has led to the greatest client satisfaction. Our fees represent the highly individualized nature of our services, and are thus not inexpensive. We will be pleased to estimate a range in which total fees are likely to fall.
