Is a Monthly Retainer Right for Your Business?

At The Wilkerson Law Office it is our job as corporate attorneys to do everything we can to minimize the legal risks our clients face.

We call it preventative medicine and operate on the belief that the cost to fix basic legal problems can be up to 20 times more expensive than doing things right (with an attorney) from the beginning.

Most business owners call an attorney when they’re in a pinch, which is one of the most expensive times to find and hire an attorney. Not only will you need to find an attorney on a time-restricted basis, which makes it harder to shop around, but the new attorney will spend hours upon hours (aka $$$) getting to know your business and your practices.

At The Wilkerson Law Office we get to know your business, identify areas of potential liability, and continuously work with you to minimize your exposure.

Included with each retainer package, clients receive regular updates in California business and employment law and federal business and employment law. In addition, clients also receive practical advice to implement into their daily business operations.

The Benefits of a Monthly Legal Retainer Service

  1. Stop the Clock!
    Most businesses are afraid of that hourly bill and dislike the notion that when they pick up a phone to ask a legal question, they will be billed on an hourly basis. Psychologically, this makes trusting an attorney difficult and makes people think twice before seeking legal advice – which ultimately defeats the benefits of having an attorney-client relationship in the first place.
  2. It Is an Affordable Option
    The monthly retainer service with The Wilkerson Law Office is cheaper than hiring an attorney on an independent basis. Retainer clients pay monthly in advance of services, so we are able to offer clients a generous discount ($75-$125 dollars off the hourly billing rate). Additionally, retainer arrangements are cancelable at any time by our clients.
  3. It Covers Your Basic Legal Needs
    Whether you have a quick question, need a new contract drafted, or are having trouble managing your employees, The Wilkerson Law Office is here to handle all of your basic legal needs for you so you can get back to running your business and making money.
  4. It Keeps Us From Working With Your Competitors
    Once you hire The Wilkerson Law Office, we will never represent any business or entity that has an adverse interest to you.
