Student Discounts:

We Offer Discount Student Rates and Reduced Legal Fees for students and young adults, including no interest monthly payments. For all cases, we require half the fee upfront. The other half can be broken down into affordable payment installments with no interest. However, with all payment plans, a valid credit card number must be given to be retained on record and charged on a specified date if the remaining balance is unpaid.

About Legal Fees:

At the Law Office of Robert L Keates, most payments for legal services are Flat Fees, meaning one fee is paid for a certain legal service, rather than an hourly rate. If the case progresses to trial, a second trial fee is then charged, and often that fee amount is discussed and agreed upon ahead of time; it is not paid until the trial is not only approaching but decided upon by the client.

This arrangement is used to keep costs down for clients, since most cases do not go to jury trial, but instead are resolved by a dismissal, plea, or other negotiations.

  • Money Order or Cashier's Check ;
  • Electronic Bank Transfer, Billpay, ACH, or Wire;
