Court fees

Clients are responsible for paying court fees and costs.  Click here for the San Diego Court fee schedule.  Many of our clients qualify for a fee waiver.  Click here for the fee waiver packet.


Typical expenses that our clients incur are: mileage, parking fees (if downtown case), copies, and mailing.  Your fee/engagement agreement outlines these expenses and their costs.  Your monthly invoice will include the specifics of any incurred expenses.


Our clients pay based on San Diego County's Area Median Income.  This is based on the State of California's Housing and Community Development Guidelines and accounts for our clients' household size and annual income.  To determine your hourly fee, find the box where your household size and annual income meet.  Then follow the column down to the highlighted amount. This is your hourly fee.
