Retainer Fees from $1500!

At Ohana Legal we believe that everyone should be able to have the best legal representation possible. We understand that not everyone has money up front. You probably are seeing Attorneys charging retainers that range anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000. These retainers are set by the Attorney and more indicate the lawyer’s ability to TRUST YOU to pay for future services. My question is: Why trust an Attorney that doesn’t trust you?

We understand this simple but big concept of TRUST. You are trusting us with your family’s future- we should be able to trust you.

Many Attorneys don’t know how to implement a payment plan or they are simply stuck in old ways of doing things. Payment plans work for both you and the Attorney when done right. No client should be denied access to the legal system because they are unable to afford a high initial retainer fee.
