Traditional Retainer

Fee paid for the time and costs of the case

Navigating your family or dependency case can seem insurmountable. We’d like to help you. The Chafetz Family Law Firm offers traditional legal retainers for as long as your case is active. Rates are negotiable based on need, ability to pay, expected duration, complexity of your case, and other factors. Typically, the retainer for cases in our office ranges from $2,000 to $5,000.

If you think an up-front retainer may be difficult or impossible to pay–especially since right now your main focus is the well-being and safety of your children–check out our pay-as-you-go option.
