Philosophy

Flynn & Wright provides its clients with high quality, cost-effective legal services. By high quality, we mean the application to our clients' needs of substantive knowledge and judgmental skills developed over many years of training and experience, coupled with strict adherence to the ethical rules governing the legal profession. By cost-effective, we mean that the client's investment in legal services will, when viewed from the client's perspective, be seen as appropriate for the circumstances presented -- and that our services will have been efficiently rendered.

Billable Time

Our charges for legal services will generally be based on the time devoted to a matter. Each attorney and paralegal is assigned a billing rate reflecting that person's training and experience. "Billable" time is time spent working exclusively on client business.

Since some time turns out to be more (or less) valuable to the client than other time, we regularly make subjective adjustments to our billings to reflect these variations in the value of time. (Indeed, the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct require attorneys to consider more than a dozen factors -- time being only one of them -- when establishing a fee for services.)

Expenses

Except in unusual circumstances, we will not charge for incidental expenses such as facsimile transmissions, photocopies or long distance telephone charges. We pass on to our clients our expenses incurred for travel, title examination services, package delivery, electronic research, official fees, transcripts, expert witnesses and the like. Charges of this nature are not, as in some firms, "marked up" to generate additional revenue.

Payments

Our statements are submitted to clients on a monthly basis, and we anticipate payment within thirty days. Since prompt payment from clients is important to our efforts to keep down our costs of doing business, we may impose a late charge equal to 1.5% per month on amounts past due.

If there is ever a question about our billings, we ask that our clients let us know immediately. The satisfaction of our clients is of paramount importance to us, and we want to resolve any misunderstandings as promptly as possible.
