Tom Larson Law

If you have a divorce/family law, personal injury or criminal matter and need a lawyer, I’m it.  I’ve been practicing law and fighting for my clients’ rights in all of Pinal County’s Justice Courts, Superior Courts, the Arizona Court of Appeals and the Arizona Supreme Court for 25 years.  I’ve represented thousands of individuals from Pinal County and throughout the United States since 1985.  I have a small office with one employee, so my fees are very reasonable.

What will it cost?

A.    Family Law Costs and Fees:

I charge $200 per hour for my time in family law cases.  I require an up-front earned-upon-receipt retainer.  I will also have a minimum fee which in most cases is the same as the earned-upon-receipt retainer.  The amount of your retainer will be determined by the facts of your individual case.  A custody case is the highest conflict and requires the highest retainer, usually between $4,000 and $7,500.  Thus, if, for example, $4,000 was the earned-upon-receipt retainer, that would purchase up to 20 hours of time (20 x $200 = $4,000).  If custody is not involved, but you’re fighting over how to split your property and debts, then my usual earned-upon-receipt retainer is about $2,500, depending on the value of your property and how easy it is to value your property.  A business is much more difficult to value than a house, for example.  Finally, if the two of you have reached an agreement, but don’t want to file all the documents and process the divorce, I charge a flat fee of $1,500 (which includes the $296 filing fee) to get your divorce finalized.

B.    Criminal Law Costs and Fees:

Determining what your earned-upon-receipt retainer will be in a criminal case depends on two things: the level of felony or type of charge and my perceived likelihood that the case will go to a jury trial.  The higher the level of felony you are charged with means that more risk is involved.  If your case is headed for a jury trial, that requires significant time to fight for your rights.

My hourly rate for a criminal case is $200 per hour.  My usual earned-up-receipt retainer for a misdemeanor charge is $1,000 to $1,500, for a DUI $3,000 to $4,000, for a lower-level felony (Class 4-6) $3,000 to $5,000.  More serious felonies will require a $7,000 to $25,000 retainer.  These are earned upon receipt and, in a criminal case, my minimum fee will be the same as your earned-upon-receipt retainer.

My 25 years’ experience includes both prosecution and defense work, but is primarily in defense, fighting for my clients’ rights in Pinal County.  I know the Pinal County judges, prosecutors and probation officers.  I can use this knowledge, plus the experience of 25 years, to aggressively defend the charges brought against you.

If you’ve been charged with a crime in Pinal County, you should consider hiring me.  You should hire someone soon, as often criminal defense work starts before the crime is charged.  Call me at 520-421-2550.

C.    Personal Injury Costs and Fees:

Personal injury fees are contingent upon your recovery.  There is no up-front earned-upon-receipt retainer in a personal injury case.  In most cases, I charge a one-third contingency fee.  This means that your fees are one-third of any monies received for you.  Then expenses of the case are deducted, any doctor’s liens paid, and the remainder is forwarded to you.  This means that if no recovery is made, then no fees are charged.

Not all lawyers have the staff and experience to properly evaluate your case.  I do.  Often the most important part of the case is knowing what it’s worth so you can evaluate the offers of settlement versus the costs of trial.  However, whether to settle or go to trial is your decision.  I will not force you to take an offer that is not fair.  I have the wherewithal and experience to take your case to a jury trial to get what you deserve for your injury and the pain and suffering it has caused you.  Call me at 520-421-2550.
