Alternative Dispute Resolution
Disputes are a part of doing business, but resolving them does not always require the expense and distraction associated with litigation. Alternative dispute resolution can be a useful tool for resolving disputes in a cost-effective and timely manner. Ryan routinely achieves favorable settlements for his clients through independent negotiations with opposing counsel and with the assistance of third-party mediators. Let Ryan's expertise help you realize the benefits of a negotiated resolution.
Ryan meets with potential new clients by appointment only. The initial consultation is an opportunity for you to meet and evaluate Ryan, provide factual information about your case, ask questions, and discuss legal strategies and potential outcomes. Consultations are billed at Ryan's hourly rate of $375 per hour. The minimum charge for a consultation is one hour. Should the consultation exceed one hour, the additional time is billed in half-hour increments. If both you and Ryan wish to establish an attorney-client relationship, Broken Top Law will prepare an agreement for legal services that specifies the terms and scope of the representation and the amount of the initial retainer that will be required to begin working on your case.
