Our Fees

The CommLaw Group’s approach is to partner with the clients we serve.  We provide boutique firm expertise and small firm attention to consistently deliver big firm results, all without the big firm fees!

Every client, no matter how prosperous, wants to minimize the cost of legal representation without settling for second best. By eschewing the traditional high-leverage, high-billable-hour model characteristic of large firms, The CommLaw Group has established a model that allows us to offer our clients exceptional, large legal firm representation at rates that are up to 50% lower than many of our closest competitors in the Washington, D.C. region. In fact, our partner billing rates are less than what most of our competitors charge for junior associates, and our junior associates rates are the equivalent of their paralegal rates. We know; we’ve hired from their ranks.   

Like our peers, our goal is to provide our clients with the most effective representation possible, but unlike many of our big law firm peers, we provide it without the wasteful overhead and unrealistic billable hours requirements typical of our larger competitors.

We are agile enough to be flexible about alternative billing arrangements, such as flat fees, monthly retainers, and blended rates where circumstances make such arrangements appropriate.

No matter the scope of our representation, we are committed to offering our clients personal attention and efficient, professional representation. While always keeping our clients’ objectives in mind, we maintain their trust and confidence through open and direct communication and valuable, responsive and cost-effective performance.

The CommLaw Group offers boutique firm expertise and small firm attention to consistently deliver big firm results without the big firm fees.
