We are a litigation support, security consulting, and valuation firm. We trace and value assets, conduct post-separation accountings, draft discovery requests, and assist in other aspects of dispute resolution. Our litigation expertise is broad - covering matrimonial disputes, criminal defense, commercial litigation, cryptocurrency tracing, and oil & gas disputes. Our holistic risk management solutions thoroughly address your organization's threat vectors and can be implemented by you, without us. We don't provide software or affiliate products and strive to ensure all of our recommendations include free and open source software.
How much should I expect to pay you?
Good math doesn't have to be expensive. With minimal information about your case type, we will provide you with an engagement letter detailing our scope of work and an estimate of what you can expect to pay for our expertise. To get started, you will pay a retainer and that retainer will be held until your final invoice. If your final invoice is less than the retainer, you will receive a refund of the difference. During our engagement, you will receive monthly statements containing detailed descriptions of our work, shown in quarter-hour increments (unless a court requires one-tenth hour increments), and those invoices are payable when they are received. Our work is billed on a task-basis, not a person-basis, which means the rates applied are not dependent on the person doing the work (e.g. a partner reviewing production is billed at the lowest bill rate, not a partner rate).
Do you do any work for free (pro bono)?
Yes, we do. If you have a case you would like us to consider pro bono, please contact us. Acceptance of a pro bono case depends on our caseload at the time, the case type, and the . If we don't accept your pro bono case, we can still provide a detailed scope of work with an estimate so you can shop around. We can also work with you on the payment terms or payment currency (we're open to creative payment solutions in lieu of U.S. dollars - bitcoin, bananas, other services, etc.).
