Real Estate, Business, or Contract Litigation
I represent plaintiffs or defendants in the following counties: Dallas, Denton, Collin.
I represent businesses or individuals in contract, business, and real estate disputes. Should a case go to trial, my client should expect to spend $8,000 to $20,000 depending on the subject matter and complexity of the litigation. Most cases do end up settling, and as such, legal fees are usually substantially less. Depending on the circumstance, the prevailing party at trial may recover a good portion, if not all, of their legal fees.
The Law Office of Benjamin Dalton accepts checks and major credit cards. Generally, our retainer for hourly work is $1,500. It could be less for matters that are deemed straight forward.
