Fee Payment Policies

Like most criminal defence professionals, we require a retainer before we begin to act on your behalf. The exact amount of the retainer depends on the estimated complexity of your case. It is our policy to send a fee schedule to our clients which fully explains when fees will be due, usually about 3 months before a trial. We are happy to arrange a payment schedule for our clients who may require it. If the required fees are not paid in full by the due date, our legal team reserves the right to withdraw as counsel and bill our fees up to that date.

As a lawyer, Gordon J. Bowen is bound to upholding the solicitor-client privilege. We are legally required to protect your privacy and we will not disclose to anyone what you tell us about your case.
